Tendon tears usually either require surgery or heal on their own in 6-8 weeks. Contusions (bruises) usually heal in 1-2 weeks. Most ligament sprains also heal in about 6 weeks. Of course, the severity and location play big roles in healing time. ...Read more

How long does it take for an injured ligament on the hand to heal?

X-rays : X-rays can identify bone structure, being useful in the detection of pathology of the skeletal system as well as for detecting some disease processes in soft tissue. Traditional plain x-rays are less useful in the imaging of soft tissues such as the brain or muscle, but sometimes if calcification is present you may be able to see them. A fracture is usually healed after several week, so is unlikely that a trauma or fracture that happened several years ago is not healed yet. Please go see a specialist that may be able to help you. ...Read more
