  • for a torn Ligament they'll put you on crutches, knee brace and physical therapy. thats what they did for my dd when she tore her's. Ibuprofin for swelling. Ice it as needed.

    My advice it to go see your doctor.

  • You need to go to the doc. They will probably run tests to make sure you don't have high levels of uric acid, etc. My husband gets this from time to time and needs to have his knee drained.

  • My DH tore a ligament in his knee, It healed on it's own. But it takes a few weeks. When you sit at night, keep putting a cold pack on the swollen part.
