In brief: Knee ligaments
After you have damage your medial collateral ligament, or your lateral collateral ligament, the ligaments are stretched and or torn.
The is no way to strengthen the ligament, short of repairing the tear. Rehab for ligaments include exercises to maintain your leg strength around the knee, protection of the ligament with a brace, and time for the sprain to heal. Check with your trainer.
