J-CLINIC for treatment of biceps tendinitis in Bangkok

Hello, this is Sato from J-CLINIC, a physiotherapy and acupuncture clinic in Bangkok.

In this post, I’m going to talk about treating biceps tendinitis. We see this condition often among clients who play volleyball.


What is biceps tendinitis?

Biceps tendinitis is when you damage your tendons, muscles, or bones attached to the joint capsule or shoulder joint. It’s often associated with playing sports that involve repetitive, large arm swings, such as volleyball (serves, spikes), tennis (smashes), and baseball (pitching). You may feel pain in the front or back of the shoulder or, sometimes, in the upper arm, depending on where your injury is.


Common causes of biceps tendinitis

Common causes of  biceps tendinitis are
・overuse such as through sports with strenuous shoulder movement (volleyball, baseball, golf, etc.)
・insufficient flexibility of the trunk and hip joints
・insufficient muscle strength around the shoulder and scapula
・improper movement, improper form

Common symptoms of biceps tendinitis

You may experience the following when you swing your arm, such as when playing baseball, handball, softball, tennis, or volleyball:
• shoulder pain
• restriction in your shoulder joint’s range of motion
• difficulty throwing with full strength

Our treatments for shoulder rotator cuff injuries

At J-CLINIC, we offer a wide range of treatment options for your shoulder rotator cuff injury

Manual treatment

Manual treatment will relax the tension in your superficial shoulder muscles and deep trigger points to improve your body balance.

Motion and manipulation

Motion and manipulation will improve the range of motion of your shoulder joints. In addition, it improves elasticity while relieving soft tissue adhesions and stiffness.

Ultrasound and high voltage therapy

Ultrasound and high voltage therapy promotes cellular repair. It speeds up healing and relieves pain.


Acupuncture improves blood flow to the stiff muscle tissue that is causing you pain and limiting your range of motion. The improved blood flow will flush out the pain-producing substances collecting in the stiff areas. It also relieves tension in joints and muscle ligaments, giving you better a range of motion and relief from pain.

Taping therapy

Taping supports the deltoid muscle and helps alleviate pain.


We can also prescribe poultices to help relieve your pain.

Rehabilitation for biceps tendinitis at J-CLINIC

 When you have biceps tendinitis, you will need rehabilitation to help you swing your arm freely again. At J-CLINIC, you can access manual and electro therapy to help relieve pain in your shoulder joint and increase your range of motion. You will also learn self-care tips to increase your muscle flexibility and exercises to build strength in your shoulder’s inner muscles.

* Strengthening the inner shoulder muscles (rotator cuff) using a TheraBand.


* Teaching self-care exercises using massage balls to keep the muscles around the shoulder flexible. When the muscles around your shoulder are stiff, it can put undue stress on the injured area. This can slow recovery and cause pain in other parts of the body, as you try to shield the injured shoulder.


If you suffer from a biceps tendinitis in Bangkok, we invite you to contact us by phone, email, or Facebook.
