Located at the end of each muscle, ligaments allow our muscles to contract and flex properly. If a ligament is damaged, it is likely to be extremely painful and you may have trouble moving the affected area. If, for example, you were to tear a ligament in your arm or shoulder, you may find that the mobility of the area is severely limited until the injury has healed.

Are you making negligence claims in Waverley?
Whilst damaged ligaments can sometimes heal of their own accord, some patients do require treatment. If you need to strengthen the area, a physiotherapist may be able to help you to do this by prescribing a course of specific exercise. However, if the damage is more severe, surgical intervention may be required.
Unfortunately, the recovery time for this type of injury can be fairly lengthy so you may need to rest and refrain from taking part in any sporting activity. As many people who sustain this type of injury do so whilst playing sports, resting and being inactive can be extremely frustrating. However, if you try to do too much too soon, you could risk aggravating the injury and you may make things worse in the long run.
