Brief overview of the episode:

             The biceps, more specifically the biceps brachii, is named because it has 2 heads (bi=2 cep= head), the long head and short head. The long head is more lateral, runs through the bicipital groove and attaches to the glenoid. The short head sits more medial and connects to the corocoid.
            More often the long head is hurt. The long head is more responsible for stability as well as elbow flexion and forearm supination while the short head is more responsible for power, shoulder flexion, elbow flexion and forearm supination.
            Pain in the front of the shoulder is the most common symptoms of all biceps injuries. In most cases the biceps become irritated because there is instability in the shoulder joint. This can occur though injury, weakness or poor scapular or postural control.
            Biceps injuries along rarely need surgery and in almost all cases respond well to physical therapy treatment.
