Not as often: While many physicians grade ligaments sprains by grade (such as the mcl), the lateral collateral ligament is much more complex. It is more often associated with PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) tears, multiligament tears (or knee dislocations). The lateral collateral represents a number of ligaments that hold the outside of the knee stable. It is more complex than can be addressed here. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is worse: an ankle sprain, tendon tear or ligament tear? I cant walk after 2 weeks on "sprained ankle" and am scared of diagnosis
See your doctor: An ankle sprain is graded on severity and symptoms. The inability to walk two weeks after an ankle sprain is concerning. Even in mild sprains, you do tear part of the ligament. In more severe sprains, more of the ligament is torn. It's possible you could have injured more than one ligament, the cartilage, or the bone which is not allowing you to walk. I recommend you see your doctor right away ...Read more
