Whether or not you have surgery, your knee ligament recovery outlook is very positive yet dependent upon the severity of the tear sustained.
Your physician may recommend over-the-counter pain relievers or prescribe medication along with physical therapy to help strengthen your knee muscles and ligaments. Surgical recovery may involve using crutches to help keep you from placing weight on your knee.
Speak to your physician about your specific treatment path and when you can expect to resume enjoyable activities, including sports. If you need an orthopedic specialist, search now or call 1.844.BSW.DOCS.
