When treating an MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) injury, the first step is to Rest and Immobilize your knee, as this will help you avoid doing any further damage to your MCL. Once your knee is at rest, you can use Cold Compression and Painkillers to help relieve the pain and swelling. Once your inflammation is gone, now it is time to start healing the MCL with Blood Flow. Finally, Physiotherapy will help you restore strength and full range of motion to your MCL.
