Anyone knows how to cure a minor Ligament tear that i had from playing basketball ?
Its been around 5 months.
Occasionally the injury will come again in 1-2 months and it happened thrice already.
I was wondering how can i cure it cos i dont really dare to jump while playing badminton now.
So far while playing badminton i didnt suffer any injuries, its always when i'm playing basketball.
I went to a hospital for x-rays before and everything was normal.
The doctor said that it MAY be a minor ligament tear but i didnt complete the physio and such.
Hoping it isnt.
I'd appreciate it if anyone knows how to cure it ><.
It's rather important for me to cure cos i'm more of an active type which loves to walk here and run there.
Thanks in advance.

A few words of advice from someone with bad knee ligament injuries...
1. Do your physio and exercises.
2. If it still bothers you after so long, it may not be a simple ligament tear... it may involve the meniscus also. MRI, or even better yet, arthroscopy is the only way to diagnose it.
3. Try wearing a neoprene type knee tensor to support your joint when you play.
4. Stop playing basketball!?

I don't think there's really a cure. It's sad, but when you injure your knee it will NOT be the same ever again. All you can do is find ways to support your knee; build your leg muscles and wear knee sleeves.
I would take precaution and find out what your doctor recommends.

I know that such cases will recover by itself over a period of time but i didn't expect it to take such a long time.
Will wearing knee sleeves help to reduce pains/injuries?
The doctor told me to buy a guard or something before it costs about SGD$150+, it was too ex that my father and I thought that it wasn't neccessary to spend that money. O:
I've stopped playing basketball for about 1months already, kind of improving i guess. Didn't suffer anymore injuries.
I've been extremely careful on the way i walk and play badminton too.
