Passive strain on the Brachialis
A traumatic strain of the brachialis may result from a sudden hyperextension of the elbow.
The clinical examination shows, apart from a capsular pattern (traumatic arthritis) , also pain on resisted flexion of the elbow; the pain is situated mainly at the upper arm.
The statement of a traumatic strain of the brachialis muscle is very important
as the injury can lead to the eventual development of an ossification in the
brachialis muscle, the so-called myositis ossificans.
Attention: Pain on resisted flexion and -supination (in combination with a capsular pattern) will merely indicate a fracture of the head of the radius.
