How long will it take for a sprained ligament to heal if you are able to walk on it?

How long will it take for a sprained ligament to heal if you are able to walk on it?

Sprain: Even though you can walk on it, care is required for healing. It can take ligaments as long as bones to heal, depending on the severity of the injury and what ligament is injured. Get it checked out by a podiatrist who can take xrays to rule out boney involvement and give you better guidance. Good luck. ...Read more

What are the types of exercises done for medial collateral ligament sprain? Can it heal with physical therapy alone?

What are the types of exercises done for medial collateral ligament sprain? Can it heal with physical therapy alone?

Mainly quad work: The medial collateral ligament is not directly treated by exercise. Such sprains need time, rest, ice/heat, and pain free exercise. Abnormal body mechanics need to be addressed. However, any knee injury benefits from directed physical therapy to strengthen the muscles around the knee, especially the quadriceps. Many mcl (and even acl) injuries can be safely and confidently managed with pt. ...Read more

Pain at r ligament of l ankle 11 weeks after sprain. 1 doc said ligament injury, wear brace n rest to heal. 1 doc said ankle exercise. Who's right?

Both: Depending on the severity, immobility is the first step. Gentle range of motion should be started early and then progress as tolerated to include strengthening. I would put more weight on a specialist if you went to see one. You should call them and ask this question. ...Read more

I have a high ankle sprain but my orthopedic doctor didn't take an mri. Should I get a second opinion? If my ligament is torn will it heal on its own?

I have a high ankle sprain but my orthopedic doctor didn't take an mri. Should I get a second opinion? If my ligament is torn will it heal on its own?

Depends on severity: High ankle sprain (has) is a different injury than a routine lateral ankle sprain, in both mechananism of injury and time to healing. Has usually occurs when the foot and ankle were rotatated outward with respect to the shin bone. Routine sprains are inversion injuries, the foot rolls under the ankle. Has takes about twice as long to recover compared to routine sprains. Displacement requires surgery. ...Read more

When you have an injury to a muscle, tendon or ligament in the pelvis or low back area and do not treat it right away. How long will it take to heal?

When you have an injury to a muscle, tendon or ligament in the pelvis or low back area and do not treat it right away. How long will it take to heal?

Depends: Avoid anti-inflammatory medications for a ligament injury. The body's own inflammation can help healing. If you take Ibuprofen type medications, no repair of ligament to bone occurs and muscle pain syndromes are common and long term. Seek a prolotherapy trained physician to help treat old ligament injuries. Healing is possible, even if late. Surgical fixation doesn't give back flexibility. ...Read more

Could penis ligament surgeries increase erect length?

Could penis ligament surgeries increase erect length?

No, no, no: Penis remains same length, only looks longer because it tends to hang lower. Danger with operation is that penis is no longer held in place. Net result is a more poorly performing penis of same overall length as before. Any surgeon performing this procedure deserves to lose their license to practrice! ...Read more

How long before I lose the pain of penile suspensory ligament division so I can use my penis as normal again?

Penile procedure: The pain should only last about 2-3 weeks, but may take up to 6-8 weeks to resolve from surgery. It's just how long a normal body takes to heal.

Regarding your erections, anytime your pain is relieved and you feel comfortable, you can probably have sexual relations again.

Can you push the penis suspensary ligament around without damaging it? It feels stuck towards the left and I just want to push it to the right.

Can you push the penis suspensary ligament around without damaging it? It feels stuck towards the left and I just want to push it to the right.

Up, Up, Up, Up Awayyy!!: Barring some weird injury, that ligament is pretty tough and fixed in place so what you are feeling may not be caused by a displaced ligament. On the other gland...I mean hand, nudging it one way or another should probably do no harm, so give it a try and see if that helps. If not, then someone will need to examine you to see if there's a problem. If you can keep it up, then don't worry too much. ...Read more

My penis doesn't hang it's hides can I correct this is it blood flow can u strectch your penile ligament to help it hang lower can I make it straight

Penis Norms: No. Please do not damage your insides just to have a 'hanging penis". Many penises are 'growers' as we call them. The only thing that one should ask in this situation is does it get erect when I want it to? Does it reach orgasm when I am sexually active and does it ejaculate appropriately. ...Read more

Why has my doctor had me keep my penis lifted up against my belly for 10 days after suspensory ligament division of the penis? Benefits of this?

Penile procedure II: Lifting the penis onto the belly prevents bending of the penis downward. Now that the suspensory ligament is detached you will hang lower, but initially you may have some more pain and swelling if it is bent downward. Good luck!

Ask your surgeon to guide you! ...Read more
