High grade partial tear ucl  and common flexor tendon what does this mean?

Thumb or Elbow?: The ulnar collateral ligament (ucl) is a primary stabilizer to one of your thumb joints.

Debra - it means: The broad banded ligament that attaches from the heel to the toe region is not at full capacity, it is degenerated or worn away with a slight tear (usually very painful.) For something like this if very painful, a walking boot is something I recommend. PRP is something I offer my patients with a partial tear but it is not covered by insurance and is out of pocket. ...Read more

I injured my knee a month ago, i had an MRI and it showed a partial tear of my PCL. i have an ability test in 2 months, can it heal with treatment?

I injured my knee a month ago, i had an MRI and   it showed a partial tear of my PCL. i have an ability test in 2 months, can it heal with treatment?

Nope!: The ACL and PCL are surrounded with joint fluid so they do not heal. Joint fluid could be named "No Stick" Fluid. Sticking together is the first part of healing, In Any Case, partial tears of the PCL and even full tears of the PCL often do not need to heal or be treated, BUT SOME DO. So a second opinion by a sports orthopedic surgeon is a good investment. ...Read more

Partial ACL PCL Tear: A partial acl and PCL tear in a 25 year in a young active person is not very common. The most important factor we consider in deciding to reconstruct is if you have any knee instability. Does it give out with certain activities ? Does it feel stable with straight forward walking ? Since your orthopedic surgeon was there and saw your acl and PCL you need to ask him or her when you can return. ...Read more

Reha: At 25 years old you need the knee to be examined very carefully and check for instability, you could have anterior or posterior or combined instabilities.First the more symptomatic one should be corrected, if not instability is detected them a very dedicated pt reha should be the next goal.Remember this is a knee at risk and should be very careful with the type of sport you practice. ...Read more
