Medial Collateral Ligament Treatment
August 1, 2014
The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is a wide, thick band of connective tissue that runs down the inner part of the knee from the thighbone to the shinbone about four to six inches below the knee. The main function of the MCL is to prevent the leg from extending too far inward, keeping the knee stable, and allowing it to rotate. Damage to the medial collateral ligament will result in pain, stiffness, swelling, tenderness, and a feeling that the knee will give way under the pressure of standing or walking. At Sovereign Rehabilitation our trained and licensed physical therapists can help patients with an MCL injury find relief from their symptoms so that they can return to an active lifestyle.
Sovereign Rehabilitation works with patients who have damaged, torn or had surgery on their medial collateral ligament to recover from injuries and return to normal activities. With a variety of therapeutic MCL rehabilitation treatment options, patients will be treated on an individual basis to find the most effective method of finding relief. Treatment options include aquatic therapy, manual therapy, muscle energy techniques, dry needling, neuromuscular reeducation, and more.
At Sovereign Rehabilitation, we have a number of Certified Manual Therapists on staff that can increase treatment efficiency and patient care. Our therapists can provide expert treatment for professional, recreational, and amateur athletes so that they can make a full recovery and return to an active or competitive lifestyle sooner and at a higher level.
