Which of the following are the symptoms of ligament injury?
1 of 5
Ligaments are fiber-like connective tissues that connect the bones of a joint allowing their motion without being separated. Injury to the ligaments may cause them to tear, which may occur due to abnormal stretching or bending of the joint beyond the range of motion of the joint. Symptoms of ligament injury include swelling and pain in the affected joint area. While the mobility of the affected joint may be impaired, it does not affect the rest of the body. Nausea and vomiting do not occur due to ligament injury.
Which of the following bones are involved in a shoulder ligament injury?
2 of 5
The shoulder is made up of two bones, the collarbone or clavicle in front and the shoulder bone or scapula in the back. A small part of the scapula called acromion extends out forward and is attached to the collarbone by ligaments to make up the shoulder joint or acromioclavicular joint. Shoulder ligament injury commonly occurs if these ligaments are affected.

Which of the following can cause ligament injury?
5 of 5
Injury to ligaments of the shoulder or knee may occur if the shoulder or knee joints are unnaturally bent or stretched beyond their capacity. This is common in participants of sports like football or athletic events like long jump where impact to the knee or shoulder may cause the ligament to stretch abnormally causing ligament tearing and injury. COPD is a disease of the respiratory system and does not affect joints or ligaments in any way.
