Appropriate time: Following acl reconstruction surgery, adequate time is necessary for the graft to re-vascularize and regain natural strength. Muscle recovery and joint range of motion return are also necessary before returning to sports. Studies indicate that it takes about 12 months for the graft to fully mature. Some surgeons allow patients to return sooner with protection – bracing. Follow your docs advice. ...Read more

Tore my trapeze 8months ago still feel the pain n spasms?

Ouch. Need trainer: Any muscle tear takes time to heal. 8 months? Likely you are reinjuring yourself. I suggest a visit with a physical therapist or trainer.

This advice is predicated on not knowing how you injured yourself and without a proper exam. PT is way to go though. ...Read more

My boyfriend & I tried a new position in bed 4 days ago, I tore something and it still hurts. Is that okay?

My boyfriend & I tried a new position in bed 4 days ago, I tore something and it still hurts. Is that okay?

Try, OK. Tear, not!: I can't tell what this new position was or what/where the 'tear' was about, but hurting for several days is not great. If it's improving clearly, you might decide to just give it rest. If it's not (or worse!) have an OBGYN exam to be safe. Experimenting can be great, but pay attention to your body and take care to learn from it. Best! ...Read more

I partially tore my ligament three months ago and it has not fully recovered since then. What am i supposed to do? Will this be chronic?

Possibly...: Depends a lot on which ligament you injured and the shape of the muscles around that joint. Ligaments don't typically repair themselves. So after such an injury, the goal of physical therapy is to develop the muscles around the joint in question, taking over some support function of the ligament. If that doesn't work, sometimes surgery is indicated. So, if you're not doing so, see a pt next. ...Read more
