Ligament repair

What is it?

Injury to the ligament is most commonly caused as a result of sports injuries or blunt trauma such as a fall, or forceful lifting or twisting injury. Ligaments connect bones together at joints and provide stability to the joint. When torn or ruptured, the joint may move abnormally causing instability, weakness and laxity.

You may need ligament repair if you have the following symptoms:

  • Instability
  • Pain
  • Abnormal movement of the affected area

Diagnosis and treatment options

Your consultant will examine you and ask you to demonstrate certain movements to check how well your hand and wrist is working. You might need some additional tests:

  • X-ray
  • Ultrasound
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan

If symptoms of the ligament injury become disabling, then surgery may be required to restore stability in the joint.

Recovery depends upon the complexity of the injury.
