      Frequently Asked Questions

      A fibrous tissue arrangement that connects bone to cartilage or bone to bone is known as a ligament. One of the most common causes of ligament tear is the twisting of various parts of the body. The ligaments of the knee and ankles are more prone to tearing because they are considered weight-bearing structures and are usually exposed to more stress.

      When you are engaged in sports activities such as football, hockey, basketball or tennis, then you become highly susceptible to ligament injuries. If pain and swelling persist after the injury, you should consult with a specialist who can help you diagnose your condition and offer the right treatment. You may look online for the best doctors for ligament tear in India or consult with Dr Aditya Sai if you face a ligament injury.

      The people suffering from ligament tears experience tenderness in the affected areas, pain, swelling and even bruising. In certain specific cases, the joint movements also become difficult. Muscle spasm is one of the significant signs of a ligament tear. Difficulty in movements and looseness in joints are early symptoms observed in affected individuals. When you try to force joints such as knee joints out of their normal position, it can lead to a ligament tear.

      Ligament tear injury is most common during athletic activities. It commonly affects the following parts of the body.

      • Ankle
        The tearing of ligaments is common in the lateral ligaments complex. The lateral ligament complex includes posterior talofibular [PTFL], the calcaneofibular [CFL] and anterior talofibular [ATFL]. The chances of injury to the medial deltoid are significantly less. High ankle sprains are common in athletes. The high ankle sprains involve distal tibiofibular syndesmotic ligaments.
      • Knee
        The major ligaments in the knee are lateral collateral ligaments [LCL], medial collateral ligaments [MCL], posterior cruciate ligament [PCL] and anterior cruciate ligament [ACL]. Injuries are most common in anterior cruciate ligaments. In case you have severe damage to your knee joints, you may need surgery. In such cases, you may consider Dr Aditya Sai, one of the best doctors for knee ligament surgery in India.
      • Wrist
        The human wrist contains twenty ligaments. Ligaments tear is most common in an outstretched hand. The triangular fibrocartilage complex [TFCC] and scapholunate ligaments are easily affected during trauma.

      Other areas where ligaments tears are common are mentioned below:

      • Back: The ligaments situated in your back are injured when you try to lift something heavy.
      • Neck: The ligament tear occurs in the neck during whiplash injuries. Sudden accelerations and decelerations can cause extreme injuries in the spinal cord. Whiplash injury also leads to damage in muscles, nerves and bones.
      • Thumb: Ligament injuries are most common in ulnar collateral ligaments during the activities such as skiing or when you fall and your thumb bents. The damage in the ulnar collateral ligament during skiing is also called a skier's thumb.

      While ligament tear can happen to various parts of the body, it commonly affects the knee. Fortunately, Dr Aditya Sai, one of the best knee ligament surgeons in India, can help you with the right treatment.

      The standard procedure for the diagnosis of ligament tear includes physical examination and reviewing the medical history. Your doctor or healthcare professional may ask you questions concerning what caused the injury. Doctors will try to carefully examine the affected site before giving the final diagnosis. To get an in-depth analysis of the damage, your doctor can also palpitate the injured area and check the affected joints movement.

      Your healthcare professional may recommend an X-ray in case the fractures are suspected. Additionally, some doctors may advise MRI [magnetic resource imaging] to determine whether there is a partial or complete ligament tear.

      Sprains are graded and divided into the following classes to help with the diagnosis and treatment:

      • Grade 1
        It is a mild sprain that can damage the ligament. Any form of severe ligament injury is not observed at this point.
      • Grade 2
        It is a moderate sprain. It includes a partial tear of the involved ligament. The joint may show abnormal looseness.
      • Grade 3
        It is a severe sprain involving complete tearing of the ligament. The joints involved become unstable and cannot function properly.

      If you experience a severe injury in your knee, you should consult with a specialist. You may visit the best knee ligament surgery hospital in India or schedule an appointment with Dr Aditya Sai at Shoulder and Knee Clinic.

      If you suffer from a mild injury such as a minor ankle sprain, it can be treated easily at home. Your doctor may recommend RICE therapy. RICE therapy involves rest, ice, compression and elevation. If you are experiencing severe ligament tears, you should consult a doctor immediately before it causes further damage.

      Your doctor will examine the affected area and recommend some tests for proper diagnosis. After the diagnosis, your doctor will suggest a treatment plan that is best suited to you. The treatment may vary according to the affected regions, the severity of the injury and factors such as your tolerance levels to pain and medication. You may need a cast, crunches, or even surgery to properly repair the torn ligament in certain specific cases.
