      Frequently Asked Questions

      A ligament is a rough band of fibrous tissue that joins two bones or two pieces of cartilage together. These are incredibly solid, but they can be strained or broken, resulting in various sprain grades. A ligament tear happens typically when a joint is subjected to a great deal of force, such as after a fall or another high-impact incident.

      Ligament tears are commonly caused by bending body sections or landings that are hard or awkward. These tears commonly occur when ligaments are completely extended and then undergo some kind of impact or trauma. Ankle sprains, or minor ligament tears in the ankle, can happen when you walk or run and land awkwardly, twisting the ankle.

      As they are weight-bearing ligaments and are often under tension, the knee and ankle ligaments are more susceptible to tearing. These injuries are most common in people who participate in activities requiring full contact (such as hockey and football) or frequent changes in direction (such as basketball and tennis).

      When a ligament is torn, it hurts and is tender to the touch. Swelling and bleeding are possible side effects. The joint can be difficult to lift. You can detect a snap or feel ripping of specific ligaments at the time of injury, and you can even have muscle spasms. When two ligaments are broken, mobility is compromised, resulting in joint looseness or inability to rotate the joint normally. A tear may occur when a joint is forced out of its natural position. A fall, a sudden spinning, or a body blow will both result in this.

      Injuries are most frequent during physical exercise when joints are often in use and under a lot of tension. Ankle, knee, and wrist ligaments are usually affected:

      • Ankle: The anterior talofibular (ATFL), calcaneofibular (CFL), and posterior talofibular (PTFL) ligaments are the most often torn in the lateral ligament complex. The medial deltoid ligament is less often damaged. In daily life, a high ankle sprain is uncommon, although it is used in amateur athletes. The distal tibiofibular syndesmotic ligaments are involved.
      • Knee: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) are the four main knee ligaments (LCL). The ACL is the most often damaged ligament.
      • Wrist: The wrist has 20 ligaments, and tears are most common when someone falls on an outstretched palm. The most often damaged ligaments are the scapholunate ligament and the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC).

      Other frequent locations of ligament tears and the potential causes include:

      • Thumb: The ulnar collateral ligament may be broken while skiing (a condition known as skier's thumb) or when the thumb is twisted in an extreme position during a crash.
      • Neck: When abrupt acceleration and deceleration cause excessive cervical spine displacement, the neck's ligaments may be broken, resulting in whiplash injuries. A ligament tear is only one aspect of a whiplash injury and can also result in muscle, nerve, and bone trauma.
      • Back: When moving anything heavy, ligaments in the back can be broken.

      If you are experiencing immense pain and looking for the best ligament treatment in India, you can visit Shoulder And Knee Clinic.

      A physical assessment and medical records are used to diagnose a ligament rupture. Your healthcare practitioner will inquire what you were doing at the time of the incident and investigate the area. They will determine the magnitude of the damage by palpating the area and rotating the joint.

      An X-ray is sometimes taken to check for cracked or broken bones. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used to assess whether a partial or full ligament tear exists.

      The degree of ligament tear is used to grade sprains.

      • Grade 1: A minor sprain in which the ligament is damaged, but no serious tearing occurs.
      • Grade 2: It is a mild sprain that involves a partial ligament tear. As a consequence, the joint may become abnormally loose.
      • Grade 3: It refers to a severe sprain with a full ligament tear. It causes joint instability and loss of function.

      When it comes to ligament tear diagnosis, patients, especially those worried about finances, always ask for ligament tear operation cost in India. The cost varies from hospital to hospital. If you are looking for an affordable ligament tear in knee surgery cost in India, you can consider Dr Aditya at Shoulder And Knee Clinic as one of the options.

      You may be able to cure a minor ligament tear, such as a minor ankle sprain, at home. RICE therapy is frequently recommended by orthopaedic doctors (rest, ice, compression, elevation). For more severe tearing, you should see a doctor who will run some tests before making a diagnosis and prescribing the appropriate medication.

      The seriousness of the damage, the site of the break, and your tolerance for various treatment options altogether will influence the treatment strategy for ligament tears. A cast or crutches may be required, and you may also require surgery to repair the broken ligament. You may need physical therapy or immobilisation after surgery to return to the pre-injury state.

      While certain ligament tears are small, they should not be overlooked. If the pain and swelling are not stable within 24 to 72 hours, you can't hold much weight on the injured body portion, or the symptoms worsen, see the doctor as soon as possible.
