Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Ligaments are specific structures formed from connective tissue that connect bones to one another. There are many ligaments with different names throughout the body, and the ligament you call the ATFL, which stands for anterior talofibular ligament, is illustrated as a whole.

Torn ligaments can be caused by various things, including:

Accident
Injury during sports
Sprains
Wearing uncomfortable footwear
Have a previous history of the same disorder
High curvature of the legs


In determining this, your doctor will usually ask you to move your leg in a specific position, followed by your doctor trying to move it on his own. To be more sure, you will usually be advised to do an MRI, ultrasound or X-ray examination.


Regarding treatment that can be done, depending on the severity. If you think it's not too bad, maybe just resting your leg for a few weeks and wrapping it up so it doesn't move is enough. However, if the tear is considered severe, your doctor may recommend surgery. That is why, our advice should discuss your condition again with an orthopedic surgeon.


Meanwhile, what you can do at home, is clearly reduce the leg work, namely by not walking or standing too long, using walking aids, bandaging your ankles so you don't move a lot, and eating protein-rich foods such as eggs, milk, tempeh. , tofu, cheese, yogurt, and so on to help with recovery. If you feel pain, then you can warmly compress the painful area and take over-the-counter pain medications, or those prescribed by your doctor according to the listed rules. Get well soon.


That's all, hope it helps.
