Default bursa tear

Any recommendations for a bursa tear (back of knee)? How long does it generally take to heal?

Mobility, if it doesn't hurt. Massage too.

If there's swelling, RICE it up and massage and anti-inflams

Any type of tearing within the body is very similar to tissue healing rates of teh skin but your mileage may vary depending on how vascularized the area/tissue is. Could be about 1-2 weeks... maybe 2-3... maybe longer.

You should be able to tell how fast it's healing within the first week or so as it starts to improve

No swelling. I got acupuncture yesterday and then it started bruising up today, which was weird. Getting massage on Wednesday. Posting photos... the white stuff is from some patch my acupuncturist gave me.

Retrograde Massage to the hamstrings will help with the inflammation and scar tissue formation. It might help the ecchymosis also?
