I had a fall and my knee popped as I fell. I can't walk or fully extend my leg. I'd this an MCL tear? Pain on the inside of my knee.
More likely ACL Tear: Injury of the knee associated with a "pop" at the time of injury is most often associated with an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament. This injury is often associated with concurrent injuries to the menisci, which could explain the pain on the inside (medial) side of the knee. Bone bruising and injuries to to articular cartilage may also occur. I strongly recommend an orthopedic evaluation. ...Read more
MCL tear: The popping and pain is more likely due to a meniscal tear associated with your mcl injury. ...Read more
Mr Harvey I had an soccer injury about 4.5 weeks ago Got MRI results and it says partial medial CL (MCL) tear I can walk fine but I can't bend my k?
Had 1st degree MCL knee tear/sprain 2.5 weeks ago from ski. Can walk with 1 crutch but have pain while bending knee. Should I be alarmed? Meniscus?
As long as it is an isolated mcl tear it will heal uneventfully. It could be a medial meniscus tear, though. A careful exam can usually distinguish between the two, but in some cases an MRI is needed to rule out meniscal injury.
Pain with walking or bending can be seen with both. ...Read more
Mcl tear: It depends on how severe the tear is. These are graded on how much the knee joint opens up with stress, grade 1-3. A grade 1 will be painful but walking will be easy once the pain subsides. A complete grade 3 tear can be painful for weeks and usually a brace is required for walking. ...Read more
Torn Mcl: It depends what grade the tear is. Grade 1&2, you may be able to walk but with grade 3 it will be painful and rest is recommended for at least 72 hours. But if it is painful to walk then stay off your leg, use cruches and follow with yor orthopedic doctor. So it depends on the severity of tear, as all tears are not the same. ...Read more
What would happen if you completely tore your ACL and your mcl? Would you ever be able to walk again?
Acl: Not all people require acl reconstruction. Some people are able to function fine without an acl depending on the particular lifestyle hobbies job ECT after rehab the knee while others can not. Patients who are more active or involved in cutting pivoting sports generally get it fixed. ...Read more
Am I able to walk. With a injured mcl? The dr. Said that he didn't think it was torn just bruised
The inside of my knee is hurting bad. The MCL hurts bad when I bend my knee and when I'm walking down the stairs or a slope. I can still run and walk?
Get examined: May not be your MCL. Avoid diagnosing yourself. Your symptoms suggest patellofemoral pain; or less likely a meniscus tear if you had a twisting injury / mechanism. See a board certified orthopedic surgeon if your probable kneecap pain doesn't improve. Best of Luck! ...Read more
When can I walk? Having ACL reconstruction, MCL and lateral meniscus repair. When can I go to work? Special needs teacher constantly standing. Thanks
Doctor said I tore my mcl, but I've been able to walk with my brace on, and a couple of weeks ago my leg got swollen and stiff is it my meniscus?
Partial MCL Sprain & ACL bony avulsion 3mm. No surgery. 5 weeks. Able to walk but not able to bend because of swelling. When will the swelling go?
I learned 8 weeks for full recovery from bone or tendon injury, could be less for the young and healthy (? like you).
But there's also the possibility that the injury hasn't been healing (hard to avoid some strain on it) and so I would definitely check in with the practitioner who has been following your case. ...Read more
Rest: Almost all mcl tears, especially partial tears and stretched mcls, will heal on their own. The mcl sits in an area of the knee can can scar down and function normally after a period of rest. This is unlike other ligaments like the acl, which cannot heal itself after injury. The mcl will heal over 6-12 weeks depending on severity. In more severe cases, a hinged knee brace may help. ...Read more
Very uncommon: The mcl (medial collateral ligament) tears outside of the knee joint. Because of this, the torn fibers are close enough to each other that they almost always heal and scar down own their own. In rare cases where there is persistent instability (looseness), we can repair or reconstruct the mcl. ...Read more
No: There can be many causes for pops and crackles (called "crepitus"), including torn meniscus, patella chondromalacia, loose body, knee swelling following an injury, or synovitis (inflammation of the lining). Some times normal knee pop and crack. Mcl tears are associated with pain, tenderness, and swelling along the medial joint line and a tendency for the knee to want to buckle with activity. ...Read more
Ligament retears: Whether or not one regains full knee function is determined by the severity of the tear as well as accompanying structural damage to other knee structures. Therefore a ist degree MCL tear torn without any other injured structures will heal well even if down the line one sustains another tear of the same magnitude. ...Read more

Laxity: The grading is based upon the degree of laxity noted on physical exam (grade 1-3). It is often compared to the other knee to get a baseline for what is normal for you. ...Read more

Yes: The pivoting involved in tearing the acl is difficult to do just by getting up from a seated position but not impossible. It would necessitate a sudden twisting of the upper body on a planted knee that is held stationary. While not impossible, it is rarely a tear that occurs with such low energy. ...Read more
Complete tear: Grade 1 is a mild sprain. Grade 2 is a partial tear, and grade 3 represrents a complete tear with demosntrable instability on exam. Bracing and physical therapy usually work with adequate soft tissue rest (ice, elevation, and limited activity) to allow swollen knee to calm down. ...Read more
The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is a wide band of tissue (a ligament) that runs along the inner side of each knee, connecting the thighbone (femur) to the shinbone (tibia), to help stabilize the knee joint. The MCL's main purpose is to prevent knees from bending too far ...Read more
