      Frequently Asked Questions

      The ligament is a tissue band that connects bone to bone and bone to cartilage. Ligament tear happens when the tissues get stretched. It also happens due to a force on the joints falling, landing or a high-impact event.

      An ankle sprain is a kind of ligament tear that can happen while running, landing awkwardly, and twisting your ankle. Sportspeople are highly susceptible to this condition. Any person who participates in a sport that involves changes of direction frequently is likely to face ligament tear.

      Ligament tear makes it challenging to move the joints. The person with this condition may experience swelling and bruising in addition to muscle spasms in some cases. When you experience a ligament tear, it is painful to touch and hinders the normal movement of joints.

      Some people may hear a pop as well. You may also experience tearing in the ligament. It usually happens when the joint moves out of its normal position. As a Mumbai resident, you may consult with a ligament specialist in Mumbai to understand ligament tear better.

      A ligament tear can happen in the ankle, knee or wrist.

      • Ankle: Ligament tears are most common for lateral ligament complex. High ankle sprains are common in athletes. It involves the distal tibiofibular syndesmotic ligaments.
      • Knee: The major knee ligaments are the posterior cruciate ligament, anterior cruciate ligament, lateral collateral ligament, and medial collateral ligament. The ACL is the most common knee ligament to get injured.
      • Wrist: The wrist has twenty ligaments. The most common wrist ligaments to get injured are the scapholunate ligament and triangular fibrocartilage complex. The wrist's ligament tear happens mainly due to falling.

      The ligament tear can also happen in the following regions:

      • Thumb: The ligament tear in the thumb can happen when the thumb is bent beyond a specific limit. Skiing can also cause ligament tear in the thumb.
      • Neck: Sudden acceleration and deceleration can cause a sprain in the neck. It can be torn due to whiplash injuries.
      • Back: Lifting heavy weights can cause ligament tear in the back.

      You can protect your ligament from getting torn by following precautions while playing, lifting heavy weights and exercising. In case of severe knee damage, the doctor may advise you to undergo surgery. The surgery cost depends upon the doctor's fee, location, and facilities at the hospital. If you are looking for knee ligament surgery cost in Mumbai, you can search the internet or schedule an appointment with Dr Aditya.

      Physical examination and the medical history of a person helps in the diagnosis of a ligament tear. The healthcare provider might ask you several questions. They might ask you about the physical activities you undergo to know the cause of ligament tear.

      Palpating the region of the sprain and moving the joint will give the healthcare provider a better understanding of the injury's extent. X-ray and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) can be used to know the depth of the tear and the fractured bones.

      The healthcare providers grade the sprain according to the extent of ligament tear. The grades are:

      • Grade 1: The sprain damages the ligament mildly but does not cause the tearing of the ligament.
      • Grade 2: It is a mild sprain, and as a result, the joints loosen. The ligament is torn partially in Grade 2 tear.
      • Grade 3: The ligament is torn completely, resulting in severe pain. It can cause instability in the joints.

      Your sprain can be graded in the above three categories depending upon the severity of the ligament tear. As a Mumbai resident, you can look for the best doctor for a ligament tear in Mumbai or consider getting an appointment with Dr Aditya Sai.

      In the case of a mild ligament tear, the treatment can be done at home. Your orthopaedic doctor might recommend you to follow the RICE therapy protocol to treat the sprain. By RICE, it is meant that the patient needs to rest, ice, compress, and elevate the region of tear.

      For severe cases, it is advised to visit a doctor and seek proper medical advice. You may need to undergo a few tests to help the doctor diagnose the condition of the ligament. The treatment plans also depend on factors like the region of tear, your tolerance level with respect to different treatment options, and the severity of the injury.

      In severe cases, you may require surgery to treat the torn ligament. You may need a cast or crutches to repair the ligament. After surgery, physical therapy is often necessary to go back to the normal condition.

      It is advised not to take any injury lightly and seek medical help if the redness and swelling do not reduce within 24 - 72 hours. If the symptoms worsen and you cannot bear to hold weight on the affected region, seek medical advice at the earliest.

      If your situation worsens, you may seek medical advice from the best ligament surgeon in Mumbai or go to Dr Aditya Sai at Shoulder and Knee Clinic.
