If this happens in a muscle body, there's no repair available, painful, ...Read more
Different structures: The ucl is the ligament holding the bones together on the inside of the elbow while the medial epicondyle is where the muscles attach at the inside of the elbow. Although they are different structures, as long as the elbow is stable the treatments are similar. Range of motion and strengthening exercises, ice and anti-inflamatories. Talk to your doctor to get the specifics about treatment. ...Read more
Difficult question: A meniscus tear is a tear of the cushions within the knee that give the knee more surface contact area (it takes the load off of the cartilage in your knee to make it last longer). The lateral collateral ligament is a complex set of ligaments on the outside of the knee that keeps the knee stable. It has a role in holding your knee in place, controlling rotation, and augmenting movement. ...Read more
Different structures: A ligament attaches between bones, and produces stability. Examples are acls and ankle ligaments. So a ligament tear produces instability. A muscle pull is tearing of muscle or tendons (which attaches muscles to bones) and produces weakness. Tendons are often repaired (such as hand tendons and rotator cuff tendons) while ligaments are often reconstructed (such as acls and ankles). ...Read more
How long is a grade 1 ACL tear and a strained LCL recovery My PT guy thinks its a grade 1 ACL tear strained LCL and maybe PCL and meniscus strain.
See ORS: Don't know the mechanism of your injury but you need to see a good orthopedist. If you haven't torn your ACL or meniscus you are going to be fine . LCL strains heal on their own when mild. A good examination by a board certified orthopedist will tell u what's up... PT's are great but they are not physicians... See your ORS! Best of Luck! ...Read more

Be seen: The patellar tendon connects the knee cap to the tibia. Without your patella tendon, you can not straighten your knee and it would be difficult to walk. A partial tear means it is not completely torn, but a high grade means it is pretty close to a complete tear. It is probably going to need to be fixed or you may have a poor outcome. Thank you. ...Read more

Alot: While mechanisms of injury to these structures may be similar and in many cases treatment may be similar they are very distinct anatomically and in terms of function and healing potential. So it would be important to know the location, type and extent of injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What causes a pec major tear? Which type of strain causes an immediate tear? Can one rupture the pec only by pushing an object forward horizontally?
Excess Sudden Use: Like all structures, tensile stress, beyond strength of weakest portion, results in tearing. The pectoral muscles originate from the anterior rib cage & insert at the lateral clavicle & proximal humerus. Contraction of these muscles pulls the lateral clavicle & upper humerus anterior. To push something away using arms requires pecs to transfer the push. Sudden, intense load most likely to tear. ...Read more
