Thanks.

Hello,

The given MRI report suggestive of minor injuries involving your ligament and related structures. It is not that much severe.

Consult an orthopaedic and get evaluated. Most probably you will improve with conservative management. Surgical correction may not be required.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
