The annular ligament is a ligament on the outside of the elbow. It can be injured, and this most commonly occurs after a fall or a twisting injury to the arm. It usually causes pain and sometimes a clicking sensation when the arm is rotated from pronation to supination. Thank you for the question.

Are there any ankle-derived symptoms that differentiate posterior tibial tendinitis from posterior tibiotalar ligament tear?

Can't stand on toes

Tendonitis
With Posterior Tibial Tendinitis (PTTD), pain is present when attempting to stand on your toes. This pain is usually felt to be pronounced on the inner side of the arch from the ankle to the midfoot. The ligament is a discrete pain behind the ankle and is present with passive and active motion. Concern is noted when the tendon is torn, in this case, the patient has difficulty maintaining stance

A normal MRI (if the reading is correct) makes tears unlikely. However, the symptom of bucking is impressive. See the orthopedist and discuss whether an MR-arthrogram is indicated. This is a more sensitive test than the plain MRI.

Reduce swelling in acl ligament tear?

Ice, rest, nsaids

Nsaids
If you have an acute injury with an acl tear, you want to get the swelling down both for comfort and to perform a reconstructive procedure if it will be done. Ice, rest and nsaids are the best ways to do this. It usually takes 2-3 weeks unless the fluid is aspirated
