Top 7 MCL Sprain Treatments

Hi, I'm Doctor Jo, a Physical Therapist and Doctor of Physical Therapy. I hope you enjoy my video demos of stretches & exercises for common injuries and syndromes. Be safe. Have fun. And I hope you feel better soon.

There are many different MCL sprain grades. You can also have a complete MCL tear. These MCL stretches & exercises are for before surgery. If you’ve had surgery, follow the protocol given by your doctor or physical therapist.

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is located on the inner part, of your knee. It helps add stability and strength to the knee joint.

The first MCL sprain treatment is to start off by getting mobility in the knee joint. You can help flex and extend the knee with knee props and heel slides.

Next you want to strengthen not only the muscles around the knees, but also around the hip as well. Clamshells and a four way hip do a great job of strengthening these muscles.

Finally standing up, hamstring curls and balancing are great ways to strengthen and help stabilize the knee joint.
