Signs and Symptoms
Uncommon cause of anterior elbow pain.
Usually an overuse phenomenon.
It sometimes results from a direct contusion or an indirect passive and sudden elongation
during (hyper)extesnion or luxation of the elbow.
In these cases it is usually combined to a traumatic arthritis.
Traumatic lesions of the brachialis muscle may lead to the development
of myositis ossificans.
Full range of movement; sometimes with pain at the end of passive flexion (compression) and extension (elongation).
Pain on resisted flexion; resisted supination is painless.
The lesion is usually localised in the distal third of the muscle belly
just dorsal to the bicipital tendon.
A diagnostic infiltration may prove necessary to localise the lesion.
Treatment is six to ten sessions of deep transverse friction.
