Hello... As you have knee ligaments injury there is no chance of healing by self. You can go for reconstruction surgery if only if your work is strenuous or you are feeling instability in your knee joint. For the pain in back muscles of your thigh i.e. hamstring muscle, you need to do stretching exercises of hamstring and calf muscles, will definitely relieve your pain. Also do strengthening exercise for front thigh muscle i.e. quadriceps muscle. One of the exercise for quads strengthening is half squatting exercise with wall support. This exercise will help you most to gain pain relief and pain-free movement. Consult to your physiotherapist for better understanding of these exercises. I too have met an accident having PCL torn and only these exercises helped me the most.
Since you are young it's ideal to fix your ligament surgically.. ACL ligament doesn't heal.. U can read my article on practo and under why it doesn't heal.. Yes LCL can heal partially.. Neither medicines nor physiotherapy can 'heal' a ligament; they just help in pain reduction.. U can consult me at my clinic for detailed evaluation and appropriate advice.. If u have economically constrains don't hesitate I will treat u free of cost..

Hello, I can understand your pain concern as knee is major weight bearing unit of body. You haven't provided ortho treatment details and physio treatment details also. Knee ligament injury take it's course of time to heal. Don't worry it will be alright in some time. Pain will go definitely. You might need to restart your exercises schedule again with gradual ones. Be patient. It will recover.
