Injuries to the medial collateral ligament (MCL) are very common and there seems to be a consensus supporting the conservative management of grade I and II tears. Grade III tears are also usually treated conservatively unless associated with injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament or posterior cruciate ligament. This article outlines rehabilitation programs for conservative treatment of MCL injuries, and postoperative programs after anterior cruciate ligament or multiple ligament reconstruction. In addition, the use of functional and prophylactic bracing for injuries of the MCL is reviewed.
