Re: 2nd or 3rd degree MCL tear

I had the Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) tear and they had me in a brace that provided limited range of motion of the knee from 30 degrees short of extension to 60 flexion. It made it easier to rehab. It took 6 weeks to feel normal. A Physical therapist can do range of motion exercises and tell you what should be done to get your motion back without a setback
