Can Ligaments Heal themselves

I tore my co-lateral/lateral ligament on my 5th metatarsal. I injured the same area 2 years ago and had surgery on it to repair it. The surgery went well and healed in 6 weeks. I recently re-tore the ligament in the same place. I took X-Rays and MRIís and it is torn. The ligament has been torn for 6 months and is painful. Can ligaments heal themselves or is surgery a faster road to recovery?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
