    Brief Medical History Overview

    Question Snapping triceps syndrome

    Physical Agents In Rehabilitation
    For the past few years I've noticed that I've had snapping triceps syndrome in both elbows (as well as subluxing ulnar nerves). Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions from a physical therapy perspective which could help me to reduce the snapping? From my searching, surgery appears to be the only treatment option (other than RICE which is obviously only symptomatic treatment).

    Re: Snapping triceps syndrome

    dear ben,

    well as far as I know snapping triceps syndrome is primarily due to a bony anatomical anomaly (congenital or post-traumatic) and the treatment is surgical;
    anatomic variation of the triceps muscle (congenital or developmental) may precipitate similar symptoms for which the treatment is physical therapy.

    please go through the article attached below to further understand the pathomechanics of this relatively rare disorder.

    on the contrary, I am not sure whether further research has been done to define an alternative treatment approach.

    cheers,

    thomas

    Re: Snapping triceps syndrome

    Thanks Thomas. I think it is either post-traumatic or due to accessory or abberrant tendon slips. I was hoping there may be some form of stretching I could do for it - but didn't think it was very likely.
