A common injury we see from the skifields at this time of year, we take a look at the MCL. MCL tears can happen in a variety of ways, but the most common is where the foot is fixed and the knee is twisted inwards, usually while the knee is also bent. This ligament provides important stability to the knee. The first 48 hours after an injury are very important and our physiotherapists can assist with first aid, advice on injury management, the use of ice, braces, taping and early exercises.
