      Hi Dean,

      Before you tell your Doctor that you want surgery, you should first request an MRI. The MRI is the only way to give you a precise answer to whether your need surgery or not in order to tell if you’ve torn a ligament. This depends on the severity of the hyperextension. I’ll create a post about hyperextensions. Best of luck, Dean
