Torn ligaments

Next is a reader with two torn ligaments (which he referred to as latissimus dorsi) in his back that refuse to heal. His osteomyologist suggests an MRI scan to check for a spinal problem, but he would prefer an alternative approach if possible. Several health professionals wrote in to say that latissimus dorsi is a muscle, not a ligament, and that any trained osteopath, chiropractor or physiotherapist can typically diagnose whether it is a spinal problem sans scan. To tear this muscle, a fairly bad accident must occur, and a spinal x-ray may be called for. If, however, the ligaments are affected, other readers suggest prolotherapy. This treatment involves a dextrose solution injected into the ligament, increasing the blood supply and flow of nutrients to stimulate tissue repair. As for supplements, try cell-building glocuosamine/chondroitin and vitamins C and K. Boswellia (frankincense) and ginger will help to ease pain. Eat plenty of bodybuilding proteins to rebuild the damaged area and do moderate exercise like yoga. Further alternatives to kickstart the healing process include the homeopathic remedies Rhus Tox and Ruta, the Bowen Technique (a gentle bodywork therapy), and craniosacral therapy.
