Hi..Generally athletes get ligament tear, in common words sprain due to excessive rotational force which will cause pain if not healed properly...generally it takes 6-8 weeks time to heal but if you resume your athletic activities in between without taking rest, you will have pain again...Consult your orthopedic surgeon for fallow up they will do the needful.
