Anyone Tear/Stretch the Alar Ligament?

Hi guys,

I've been suffering from weird imbalance issues for weeks now.
Just went to a physical therapist today and she suggested that
maybe I'd torn or otherwise injured/stretched/strained my ALAR LIGAMENT
(the ligament on your cervical spine that attached the C2 vertebrae to the skull).

Has anyone ever injured their alar ligament or any other ligament in their neck?
What was your experience with this?
What symptoms did you feel, and how long did it take to heal?
Did you do anything to treat it?

Thanks so much!

Hi, I recently just broke my C2 and stretched out my ligaments, and I have to wear a halo traction for the ligaments to grow back together for 3 months, and the only way to know if they are stretched out, by getting a CAT-SCAN or MRI.
