What is the outlook for knee ligament injury?

With treatment, a mild sprain of a ligament usually resolves within six weeks, with the ligament returning to its normal function. A moderate sprain can take more than six weeks to heal, while a severe injury, such as a tear, will require 3-4 months to fully recover.
