Torn Muscles, Ligaments and Tendons
A tear in a muscle, ligament or tendon is usually caused by trauma such as a motor vehicle accident or slip and fall incident. Torn muscles, ligaments or tendons can result in a “popping or grinding” sound, pain with movement, swelling and loss of range of motion (function).
If you think that you have torn a muscle, ligament or tendon, you should seek medical attention immediately. Tears may require physical therapy or surgery in order to restore function, prevent further damage or deterioration, 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.
