Tricep Tendonitis

Tricep tendonitis is a term used to describe inflammation, damage or rupture of the triceps tendon. The triceps muscle runs down the back of the upper arm and is responsible for straightening the elbow. At its proximal (upper) end it is attached to the shoulder blade and humerus (the bone in the upper arm) and at its distal (lower) end it inserts into the ulna (one of the two forearm bones) by means of the triceps tendon. Like all tendons, the triceps tendon is a very strong, dense sheath formed by strands of connective tissue. When the triceps muscle is contracted, the tendon pulls on the ulna and causes the arm to straighten.
