Torn muscles, tendons or ligaments often result from car wrecks and can result in considerable pain and disability.
A tear in a muscle, tendon or ligament is usually caused by trauma, such as a motor vehicle accident or slip and fall incident. Torn muscles, tendons or ligaments can result in a “popping” sound, pain with movement, swelling and loss of range of motion (function).
If you think that you have torn a muscle, tendon or ligament, you should seek medical attention immediately. Although some tears heal with time and physical therapy, others require surgery in order to restore function and prevent chronic pain. Almost all tears will require some period of immobility and medication for swelling and/or pain. Even without surgery, recovery may be lengthy and impose severe limitations on your ability to work and otherwise function normally.
