Why is my biceps tendon inflamed?

Continuous shoulder actions or years of shoulder wear and tear can cause pain due to overuse of the biceps tendon. Damaged cells within the tendon don't have time to recuperate or the cells are unable to repair themselves, leading to tendonitis.This is common in sport or work activities that require repeated use of the arm, especially overhead motions. Symptoms: deep ache, pain or a catching sensation felt in the front of the shoulder.
