It will depend on how badly torn the ligament is.

- A grade 1 tear, which is only slight tearing of a few collagen fibers in the ligament that results in a little pain and probably no bruising or inflammation, will heal in 1-3 weeks.

- A grade 2 tear, which is moderate tearing of many collagen fibers in the ligament that results in lots of pain and probably will also cause bruising and/or inflammation, will heal in 2-6 weeks.

- A grade 3 tear, which is the complete tearing of a ligament, will not ever heal without surgery.

Answer:

ok so that might work for some people but not for others,for example mine still is not haled so it really depends on the person and how much they are on their feet

Answer:

Sometimes weeks, sometimes never

Tendon and ligament damage does not heal as quickly or as thoroughly as muscle damage. And when or if it does heal will often include scar tissue that reduces its performance and or causes minor discomfort or pain

Consult a doctor before following any advice as there are a variety of treatments depending on the type, severity and location of the damage.

Typical treatments however usually include low impact stretching, heat therapy or compresses and deep tissue massage along with proper nutrition.

Basically in most cases you will want to keep it warm and flexible to encourage blood flow to the area but without adding weight or stress.

Also be extremely careful for the first few weeks after the pain has ceased (if it has ceased), because often even in cases where the tendon is healing, the knitted tissue is still softer than the surrounding tissue and prone to re tearing

If not properly cared for a tendon will develop knots and scar tissue and cause discomfort and pain for life even after it has healed to a usable form

You should pretty much treat it with care for as long as there is pain, and than for several weeks or months afterwards as well. It may be months or years or never to reach 100% recovery

depends on location and blood flow also on nature of the injury. completely severing a ligament is going to require surgical reattachment most likely but straining it might heal on its own time The ACL and MCL for example receive very little blood flow and the ligaments are unable to heal on their own this is why surgery is a must to make any type of recovery

Why do ligaments and tendons recover slowly if injured?

Ligaments are said to be hypovascular structures, which in plain English means they do not receive much blood. The slow healing of ligaments is thought to be secondary to this characteristic. In the words of former pro football player and later actor Alex Karras: "Ligaments don't heal". That is a bit of an overstatement - but not much.
