Hi, Welcom to HCM Treatment depends on which ligament was injured and if more than one are affected. Treatment may also depend on how severe your injury is and when the injury occurred. You may need any of the following:

Support devices: You may need an elastic bandage, splint, brace, or cast to limit your movement and protect your joint. You may need to use crutches if your ligament sprain is in your leg. This will help decrease your pain as you move around.


Pain medicine: You may be given a doctor's order for medicine to take away or decrease pain. Do not wait until the pain is severe before you take your medicine.

NSAIDs: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medicine may decrease swelling and pain or fever. This medicine can be bought with or without a doctor's order. This medicine can cause stomach bleeding or kidney problems in certain people. Always read the medicine label and follow the directions on it before using this medicine.

Physical therapy: You may need to see a physical therapist to teach you special exercises. These exercises help improve movement and decrease pain. Physical therapy can also help improve strength and decrease your risk for loss of function. Regards , Dr.Sharmila
