WHAT IS THE BEST TREATMENT FOR MCL INJURIES?
The medial collateral ligament (MCL) lies on the most inner part of your knee and works provide stability and strength to the joint. The MCL can get torn or sprained as a result of a high impact hit or blow to the outer part of the knee. Symptoms of MCL injuries will vary depending on the severity of the sprain, which is classified into levels of mild (grade 1), partial tear (grade 2) and complete tear (grade).
Take a look at Sydney Swan Zak Jones being fitted with a GenuTrain S.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality knee supports and braces use medical-grade compression to target the symptoms and instabilities associated with MCL injuries for all grades of tears. We have appropriate braces dedicated to minimise the pain and swelling to help complement and facilitate the recovery processes. The patented fabric is comfortable and flexible, allowing you to perform everyday activities without any restrictions to movement. The GenuTrain S Hinged brace is particularly good as it targets the symptoms associated with a MCL injury.
HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY MCL INJURIES
- Physical therapy. Strengthening exercises prescribed from your physiotherapist or exercise physiologist help to build muscles around the knee, easing the load on the joints and reducing pain.
- Stretching. Lessen stiffness and reduce pain through stretching exercises.
- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications and analgesic may be helpful for pain management.
- Support and bracing. A Bauerfeind brace offers enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression, which targets specific joints and relieves pain.
