Bicep muscle knots

I am a 78 year old fairly health and active man. During the past few months I have been having shoulder and bicep pain. My GP thinks it may be related to bone degeneration and has referred me for physical therapy. The PT has helped a bit but my left arm is still very sore and weak. It even bothers me to hold up my ipad. My most recent concern is that I have developed many muscle knots up and down my biceps. Does anybody have any idea what may be going on here? Thanks.

Re: Bicep muscle knots

My only suggestion would be to go to PT as suggested by your doctor but if it's too painful try doing it in a pool. As for the knots try massage. Keep up on your vitamin D and Calcium and try working with light free weights when your able. Studies show that you build more bone density using free weights than using machines

Re: Bicep muscle knots

Oh one more thing...stay clear of all carbonated drinks. They do rob the bones of their density

On the other hand, if the problem has persisted with PT, you may benefit from having an MRI which could detect tears, osteoarthritis or any other issues that need to be addressed. Bicep pain is often referred from the rotator cuff or labrum joint, especially with the limited range of motion you describe.
