The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of resisted exercise in a patient with pain and instability of bicipital tendon. A 45-year-old male patient was referred by an orthopedist, with a complaint of anterior shoulder pain and apprehension of mechanical symptoms such as a "clunk" when rotating the arm inward or outward since three-and-half months. He experienced pain severity of 7 on a visual analog scale (VAS). Many provocative tests such as Yergason, Neer and Speed were positive. The patient was given resisted exercise to biceps muscle twice a day for six weeks along with initial ultrasound therapy for pain relief. At the end of the sixth week, pain was normal on the numeric scale, and all provocative tests were also normal without apprehension of instability in forward shoulder movement during daily activities. Hence, an attempt was made to explore the efficacy of resisted exercise in a case of bicipital tendon instability.
