Ligament Tears and Treatment Options

We’ve all heard of athletes leaving the game after a dramatic fall or tackle that left them with a torn ACL. While an ACL tear is the most common ligament tear and one of the most common sports injuries, there are three other ligaments in the knee that can be torn, the MCL, PCL, and LCL.

The ACL, or the Anterior Cruciate Ligament, is the ligament in your knee that essentially holds the knee together. When this tears, the pain is excruciating. I would know, because this is the ligament that I partially tore three separate times before completely tearing it in a softball game in 1998.

With this ligament, as well as the other three ligaments, knowing the severity of the tear is critical. If the tear is complete, you will need surgery to reconstruct the ligament. If the tear is partial, you can treat your injury holistically without the cost and pain of surgery.

Your body does, remarkably, have the capacity to heal a torn ligament. If you give it a good amount of time to heal, taking the weight off of it, and staying away from activities that will put pressure on the knee, slowly but surely your knee will be able to heal itself.

Be realistic here, if you are active and your life demands you remain active, the holistic approach takes time you probably don’t have. However, if you wish to avoid surgery, save the recovery time and money, healing a partial tear requires some lifestyle changes and specific stretching.

Bill Parravano is “The Knee Pain Guru” and has been called, “the best in the world at eliminating knee pain without drugs, shots or surgery.”

He brings over 26 years of martial art and bodywork experience understanding movement and tensions patterns that lead to physical pain.

Bill believes the nervous system is the key to the body’s healing, and bridges the gap between what we currently know and the infinite possibilities of what we don’t know the body is capable of. Coupled with comfort, this combination creates the shortest distance between a life riddled with pain to a physical life fully mobile and self expressed.

“You can’t think your way out of pain. Pain is not rational and doesn’t care what you think. You must feel your way out of pain through comfort. Through the weeks, months and years of injury and compensation patterns built up in your body limiting your movement and making you feel older than you are.”

His unique ability of identifying the blocks that keep people stuck in pain and skillfully removing them allows for lasting change, and a new reality for his clients…
