ACL / MCL Treatment

Dealing with ACL or MCL Injuries

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) and Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) injuries are common in sports and physically demanding activities. These ligaments are crucial for knee stability and movement. ACL injuries often occur during activities involving sudden stops, jumps, or changes in direction. MCL injuries usually result from a forceful blow to the outer side of the knee. Symptoms of these injuries include pain, swelling, instability, and difficulty bearing weight on the affected leg. It's important to get a proper diagnosis, which typically involves a physical examination and imaging tests like MRI. Understanding the nature and severity of the injury is key to determining the best treatment approach. Whether it's an ACL or MCL injury, early intervention is crucial for optimal recovery and to minimize the risk of long-term complications.
