How do you treat a torn ligament in your knee
There is a question in many patients’ minds- whether a partial ligament tear requires ACL operation or not. So here I am to clarify this doubt. These days due to so much advancement in medicinal science, in 99% of the cases of partial ligament tear, there is absolutely no need for an operation. This is so because it can be regenerated with the help of a PRP injection- which has platelet-rich plasma. This PRP is derived from your own blood: we extract around 10 ml of blood from your own body and then put it in a machine that processes the blood and gives platelet-rich plasma which we inject into your knee. This treatment must be conducted in 2 to 3 settings with a gap of 7 to 10 days between each sitting and within a period of 3 months with constant exercise, you will be able to live life normally.
