The Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) is a broad fan-shaped ligament on the inside of the knee. The MCL connects the upper thigh bone (femur) to the lower leg bone (tibia). It provides stability for the knee joint and is often injured during sports that involve cutting and twisting movements. Tackling and a helmet to the knee during football can also cause an MCL injury or tear.
An MCL knee brace can help provide protection for a healing injury to the MCL ligament. An MCL knee brace can be worn for many activities to help reduce pain from an MCL tear an allow for proper healing. If you have recently suffered a torn medial collateral ligament injury then our MCL hinged braces can help.
