Biceps Tendinitis is a condition when an irritation or inflammation of the long head of the biceps tendon at the shoulder. The biceps tendon helps stabilize the humerus and aids in movements such as overhead throwing motions. In most cases, there is also other shoulder problems associated with biceps tendinitis.
