How Long Does It Take for a Tendon to Heal?

Answer

The length of time it takes for a tendon to heal will depend on the exact tendon injury, treatment given, and the severity of the tendon injury. For example, a twisted tendon may take only a few days to several weeks to heal. A severed tendon may take as long as 6 weeks or more after surgery to heal. A torn tendon may take only a few weeks to heal itself, the same with an inflamed tendon.
