I can answer questions about both conservative and post-operative rehabilitation for UPPER extremity injuries. These include but are not limited to: fractures, tendon repairs, tendon transfers, nerve repairs, lacerations, tenolysis procedures, TFCC injuries, repetitive motion disorders, reconstructive procedures. I have an advanced knowledge of UPPER extremity anatomy and industrial rehabilitation. I have extensive splinting skills for injuries to the upper extremity. Although not a physician or a surgeon I have worked closely with world renowned upper extremity specialists for over 10 years. I can give general information on what some of the most common upper extremity surgeries involve. I can reference those procedures as well. PLEASE DON'T ASK ME QUESTIONS ABOUT ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE NECK, SHOULDER, ARM/HAND. I'M NOT QUALIFIED AND KNOW ABSOLUTELY ZERO ABOUT BACKS/HIPS/KNEES/ANKLES/ETC. THANK YOU!!!
10+ years working closely with orthopedic and hand surgeons and their patients. I have treated patients with small lacerations to major reconstructive procedures. My knowledge base includes both conservative and post-operative rehab protocols and care for upper extremity injuries. I have treated patients all the way from day 1 post-op to return-to-work status.

Wow. Well that's a lot. Lots of times scapular weakness will contribute to a slew of problems. But they all start there. People who sit a lot, type, etc. often experience tightening of the pecs, weakening
You are lifting way too much. Likely damage to the biceps tendon insertion into the radial tuberosity of the radius bone - partial tear probably. Rest it, stop lifting so much, and see how it feels in
Totally depends on how comfortable you are with it. Be careful if you have any combative or physical students. They can mess things up if your arm gets pulled a little. Sounds like you may want to consider
Rest, rest, and more rest. Tendons heal very slowly and don't respond well to excessive stress. Avoid any activity that causes pain. After 4 weeks if it hasn't significantly improved go buy a wrist brace
Probably tendonitis. If not an acute injury where you heard a pop or felt a sharp pain, it shouldn't be a tendon rupture or tear. I would look into bicipital tendonitis or supraspinatus tendonitis
