How do Ligament Injuries Heal?
What you should do after the injury? More importantly, how do you know if you have a ligament injury?
Did you tear a ligament or is it just a pulled muscle?
A trained chiropractor or medical provider can assess if an injury resulted in a pulled muscle, or sprain or tear of a ligament. This is determined through a comprehensive evaluation of the injured area. Generally, when a ligament is damaged, you will notice pain, swelling, and sometimes bruising. If the ligament is torn or ruptured, in addition to extreme pain, it may feel loose or weak, like the joint will give out. Depending on the severity of the injury, the proper course of treatment is essential to ensuring adequate healing.
