Biceps femoris tendinopathy

Brett R Martin
OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this case report was to describe the use of dry needling in conjunction with auricular acupuncture, core exercises, and light aerobic activity for treating chronic tendinopathy of the biceps femoris. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 30-year-old white female presented with chronic biceps femoris tendinopathy. The injury had occurred 18 months prior while training for a triathlon. Active stretching of her right biceps femoris while standing with her feet 6 inches apart aggravated the pain at the origin in the right tendon of the biceps femoris at 0 degrees of movement...

PURPOSE: To evaluate continuity of the sacrotuberous ligament (STL) in normal and abnormal hamstring (HS) tendons on magnetic resonance (MR) images and to test the hypothesis that greater degrees of HS retraction are correlated with STL discontinuity. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The institutional review board approved this retrospective HIPAA-compliant study and waived informed consent. Control cohort comprised 33 patients (mean age, 54.1 years) without HS abnormalities at hip MR arthrography...

PURPOSE: Although male volleyball players report a greater prevalence of patellar tendinopathy than female players, it remains unknown whether higher patellar tendon loading generated during landing by male players is related to sex-specific neuromuscular recruitment patterns. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between neuromuscular recruitment patterns and patellar tendon loading during landing and to determine whether there were any significant differences in lower limb neuromuscular recruitment patterns displayed by male and female volleyball players during landing...

STUDY DESIGN: Case-series study with pre- vs. post-test measurements design. BACKGROUND: Strength training programs emphasizing eccentric muscle actions have received much attention in the treatment of tendinopathies. The current study reports on the efficacy of a novel strength training paradigm using inertial eccentric-concentric resistance to treat chronic patellar tendinopathy. CASE DESCRIPTION: Ten athletes with chronic patellar tendinopathy (15 tendons) volunteered for the study...

The case report highlights an unusual case of posterolateral knee pain after total knee arthroplasty. Tendinitis of the patellar tendon or pes anserinus is a common complication after total knee arthroplasty; however, there is no report in the literature regarding the biceps femoris tendinitis causing acute pain in the early postoperative period. In this case, the biceps tendinitis was diagnosed and treated by ultrasound-guided injection into the tendon sheath.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the kinetics, kinematics and muscle activity in runners with Achilles tendinopathy. DESIGN: Case-control study. SETTING: Biomechanics laboratory. PARTICIPANTS: 21 runners free from injury and 21 runners with Achilles tendinopathy performed 10 running trials with standardised running shoes. Injured runners were diagnosed clinically according to established diagnostic criteria...

PURPOSE: To report on the clinical features and results of surgical management of 11 athletes who were operated on for tendinopathy of the tendon of the biceps femoris. METHODS: Eleven male athletes (average age 24.4, range 18 - 27 years) underwent surgery for tendinopathy of biceps femoris tendon. At surgery, if the tendon appeared grossly intact, with only minimal signs of adherences to the surrounding tissues, an extensive tenolysis and multiple longitudinal tenotomies were performed...

Tendinitis of the knee occurs principally in those playing at competition level or for pleasure. Localisation of the tendinitis depends upon the type of sport; amongst those who jump the patellar tendinitis is predominant, with long distance runners tenosynovitis of the iliotibial tract are more often found, for activities involving lateral and brusque++ movements tendinitis of the biceps femoris and tenosynovitis of the "patted'oie" tend to occur. Whilst tendinitis is relatively easy to diagnose, its treatment is more difficult...
