I think that MSM helps with connective tissues. So without saying anything else and being completely wrong I'll let someone else take over."I am legally blind and if I can Squat,deadlift and over all get myself to the gym then anyone can get their a$$ in gear and get strong!!" - malleus25

There's not one supplement that will help with torn ligaments. Best thing for him is to ICE/HEAT - elevate - and wear a brace until he can get it fixed. Seeing how it's his knee, make sure he routinely contract's his quad muscle in a straight position atleast 4 times a day for a count of 50 (hold the contraction for 5-10 seconds. This will aid in keeping blood flow from accumulating in/around the affected area, and will help keep his quad from becoming too weak.

Joint car will improve flexibility and lubercation in the joints - MSN, Condroiten (sorry about the spelling) and glucosamine. What you really need, as others have posted, is to take care of the injury. In general, Glutimine is a great repair supplement for recovery, so it should help here as well. It is for recovery of sore muscles - injury is kinda beyond the supplement area. Best of luck to them,

Def agree with USP here, SuperCissus has done wonders for me. There was such a difference when I got on it, my knee's and shoulder feel amazing and it allows me to really go balls to the wall without pain.

Bulk Cissus helped me immensely when I tore my calf muscle last year during volleyball. It was an ugly injury with swelling and bruising.
But from the words of the physiotherapist on my first and only visit "wow I cannot believe how fast you heal"
Cissus is now a staple of mine.

A hinged cti is a necessity or he could possibly further tear whats already torn or even blow the whole triad.
Perk is they are getting good results with cavaderic ligaments coated or impregnated with certian cytokines etc that seemingly work much better than stiching things up. I was a few articles on it. Ill poke aropund ans see if I can find them.

i doubt that any supplement will help directly with the ligament issue, and the previously mentioned ones are the first that came to mind for me. I tore my meniscus recently (end of oct/beginning nov). before surgery, I was advised by the physical training staff at my school to strengthen all of the muscles surrounding the knee, mainly quad (as previously mentioned) as the stronger your muscles are going into surgery the faster your recover will be. It was previously mentioned to apply heat, Im not sure how effective heat would be, but both pre and post surgery the staff only exposed the knee to cold treatment (ice cup massages and icing). Hope this is helpful.
