Is a pulled ligament and a torn tendon the same?

No

Bone
they are different anatomical structures. Tendons are the part of the muscle that attach to the bones, the muscle portion is their "belly". Ligaments are soft tissue structures that can prevent tendons from bowstringing or help stabilize certain bones.

Most tendons perform a specified function. Loss of that function or deformity of the associated joint is likely the first indication of tendon or ligament injury.

Dr. Robert Kent answered:

Can a tendon injury or a ligament injury heal faster?

Normally

Injuries
a tendon injury will heal faster, but this depends on which muscles or tendons, as blood flow differs in different areas, as well as stresses and specific use injuries. As a very vague, quick answer, I would most likely say tendon as they more often have better blood flow.

How could i cure a sprained ligament in my arm(elbow)?

Elbow sprain

Elbox_x-ray
Typically sprains heal over 6-8 weeks, however severe sprains or complete tears sometimes require reconstructive surgery. Initial rest and ice with anti inflammatories help. If your elbow moves but is very painful, or if you cannot move it at all, I would see your orthopedist to rule out a fracture.

Dr. Ellen Wenzel answered:

Is a creaky foot a sign of tendon and ligament injury?

Could be

Tendon
Without a full exam, this is difficult to get a complete picture. Some people will hear and feel popping from tendon injury but others will experience similar symptoms from joint injuries. This is probably something that you want to have evaluated by a foot and ankle specialist (podiatrist or foot/ankle orthopedist).

Classic Ankle Sprain

Ankle_sprain
Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (R.I.C.E. therapy) with addition of NSAIDS if feasible. If no improvement in pain and swelling in several days, seek thorough evaluation by your physician. Radiographs would likely be assessed.

Which heals faster: a tendon injury or a ligament injury?

Tendon

Tendon
Tendons have clear indications for immediate reconstruction and care. Ligament injuries are not visualized on X-ray, and are usually not treated in cases of fracture. If you have persistent myofascial pain or instability from injury seek a physician who has learned Prolotherapy techniques for Rehabilitation. Also, Anti-inflamatory medicines taken for injury block ligaments from "self healing".
