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.

If that doesn't work, sometimes surgery is indicated. So, if you're not doing so, see a pt next. ...Read more
