There are some injuries that are likely to heal up on their own, and when they don’t, a quick visit to the doctor is sufficient to take care of them. However, certain injuries require immediate medical intervention, no matter how minor they feel or appear.
Tendon injuries should be repaired immediately. Waiting a bit to see how it heals on its own is a big mistake. While you may not need to go in for surgery the same day as your injury, remember that the longer you wait, the more complex the tendon injury becomes. If surgery is postponed too long, only sub-optimal results can be provided and multi-stage tendon reconstruction may be required.
