Palpation of the Brachialis Muscle

Biceps Tendon

Ask the subject to contract the biceps. Place the thumb and fingers in the indentations on both sides of the bicipital tendon (the lateral and medial bicipital grooves) and now ask for an isometric nexion.

Under the fingers – and behind the biceps tendon – the contraction of the brachialis muscle can be felt. During relaxation of this muscle, its belly, which runs further distally than the muscle belly of the biceps, can be palpated with a pinching grip. The brachialis inserts at the ulnar tuberosity.
