How can I treat a bicep tear at home?


Answer by  tclawhorn (89)

Complete treatment and recovery is difficult but certain methods can be used to treat the pain. Ice applied to the bicep will help reduce pain and swelling. If possible, you can wrap the area with a bandage and put the arm in a sling to reduce further activity. Avoid any activity involving the arm or heavy lifting.

Home treatment would include the use of ice and anti-inflammatory medications to help reduce swelling and relieve pain. Depending on the severity of the injury, an arm sling may be recommended to help prevent aggravation of the injury. Avoidance of heavy lifting and overhead activities is also recommended.
