Treatment and Recovery Time for MCL Tears

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) on the inner side of the knee is most often torn when there is a force that strikes the outside of the knee. The MCL attempts to resist widening of the joint and tears if the force is too great. When this happens, you face a recovery time of weeks to months, depending on the grade of the MCL tear.
