Treatment for MCL Injury at Pro Physio SA

mcl-injury_

Pathology

The MCL is the ligament on the inside of the knee which, along with other ligaments of the knee and the muscles provides the knee with its stability.

Injuries to the MCL most often occur when an athlete is changing direction during running and through direct impact on the outside of the knee and so are common in contact sports such as AFL, rugby, downhill skiing and soccer. Common symptoms include pain on the inside of the knee.

Classification/Assessment

Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapists are able to assess and assist in diagnosing the extent of an MCL injury. The physiotherapists at Pro Physio SA are highly trained in thoroughly assessing and performing tests to determine the extent of your injury. At Pro Physio SA, we will examine your knee to determine the type, extent and causes of your injury/condition and can order an X-ray or refer you to a doctor if need.

Treatment

Immediate management of any soft tissue or ligament injury is to RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) for the following 48-72 hours to reduce the bleeding and damage.

At Pro Physio SA, our highly trained Sports Physiotherapists are able to assist you through your rehabilitation. We use evidence based treatment methods which are appropriate and individual to you.

This may include but is not limited to:

  • Massage
  • Joint mobilization
  • Taping and brace fitting
  • Dry Needling/Acupuncture
  • Electrotherapy

The physiotherapists will work with you in designing and implementing an individualized thorough rehabilitation program for you. The program developed will progress you from light strengthening exercises to functional exercises and training and so you are able to return to your sporting activities.
