  • The future of non-surgical care for a non-healing MCL injury with laxity (partial ligament tear) is likely bioengineering. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because of this, the lateral collateral ligament is more flexible than its medial counterpart, and is therefore less susceptible to injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • An LCL injury usually occurs simultaneously as the other ligaments of the knee are injured. (wikipedia.org)
  • Injury to these ligaments can include strains, sprains, or tears. (aapmr.org)
  • Injury to either ligament can be caused by twisting or sudden blows to the knee. (aapmr.org)
  • Individuals who ski or play football, soccer, or rugby also have increased risk of collateral ligament injury. (aapmr.org)

  • distal
  • Embryologically and phylogenically, the ligament represents the distal portion of the tendon of adductor magnus muscle. (wikipedia.org)
  • tibia
  • Medial' is another word for inside, and this ligament runs from the inside of the shin bone (the tibia ) to the inside of the thigh bone (the femur ). (everything2.com)
  • One end of the ligament is attached to the femur, while the other end is attached to the tibia. (nba.com)
  • tear
  • An MRI , which images tissue (like ligaments and muscles), can confirm a partial or complete MCL tear so some doctors will order one to confirm a diagnosis. (nba.com)

  • closer
  • With the knee in flexion, the radius of curvatures of the condyles is decreased and the origin and insertions of the ligaments are brought closer together which make them lax. (wikipedia.org)
  • relation
  • This ligament is in relation with the triceps brachii and flexor carpi ulnaris and the ulnar nerve, and gives origin to part of the flexor digitorum superficialis. (wikipedia.org)
