Your orthopedist will assess your case through a physical examination and will review your medical history, he or she will tell you if additional diagnostic studies such as X-rays or MRI are required, and will indicate the steps to follow to control the pain and inflammation, which may include:
- Compression in the injury area.
- Keep the affected part elevated.
If your injury is very serious, you may require surgery to repair torn ligaments.
