Physiotherapy for a Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) injury

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is commonly injured in sporting activities such as football, when the outside of the knee joint is struck and MCL is stretched too far, causing a tear in the ligament.

At Manchester Physio we provide specialist assessment and treatment for MCL injuries to ensure you make the best possible recovery and get back to your previous level of activity or sport as soon as possible.
