The LCL or Lateral Collateral Ligament provides knee stability and runs lengthwise on the outside of the knee. The LCL connects the thigh bone (femur) to the thin leg bone (fibula) and works in conjunction with three other knee ligaments to provide knee stability during activities and sports.
An LCL sprain can cause pain and instability when combined with an injury to the other three ligaments. The LCL can become injured from playing contact sports or twisting the knee while the foot is planted to cause an injury. If you have suffered a torn LCL then it’s important to wear an LCL knee brace to help provide stability and support while ligaments heal.
Our LCL brace selection features different styles to help reduce pain and allow for proper healing from an LCL tear. Some of the braces include a special range of motion limiting hinge to help provide your knee with added protection and reduce strain on the LCL. When choosing a torn LCL brace be sure to measure correctly for a snug yet comfortable fit. Need help finding the right LCL knee brace?
