Torn Collateral Ligament


Q: I tore my collateral ligament in August. I unfortunately waited too long to go to the Dr. When I did, I was put in a cast for three weeks. The cast is now off and I am in so much pain. The physician assistant that checked me after it was off said that it was healed. I was not given any PT or anything of that nature and was told to return to work. My job is direct care to people with disabilities (I was injured at work). Was it not given enough time to heal?
