MCL inner knee : This means your MCL, medial collateral ligament, is thicker than usual and this commonly happens from an injury from a force pushing the knee inward. The MCL is the static inner side of the knee stabilizer. It connects the the two main bones on the inner side of the knee. Commonly heals without surgery if injured. Some problems can warrant a good brace as the treatment.

Get checked: There are many reasons a knee may not extend after an injury. See an orthopedic surgeon to have a history, physical exam, and appropriate imaging to make the diagnosis.

Yes: One is called DynaSplint. Several brands on the market. These are commonly used for stiff knees after a surgical procedure to help them get motion back when it seems to be taking too long or everything else has not worked.

Thank you, your answer or tip was very helpful! Thanks, Dr states osteotomy is not an option due to the degrees being so far off...guess full knee replacement it is,
