Collateral ligament

Collateral ligament injuries can occur in isolation or as a combination injury, primarily in conjunction with injuries to the cruciate ligaments. Isolated collateral ligament injuries primarily occur in children. These injuries can be treated with a cast or splint with no problems.

Concomitant injuries must be ruled out in adulthood without fail. Isolated injuries of the medial collateral ligament are immobilised using a splint and, depending on the degree of severity, kinesitherapy is commenced very quickly. Surgical treatment of isolated collateral ligament injuries is not necessary.

 

Please note that medical indications and treatments change constantly. Sometimes these changes occur more rapidly than I am able to update on my homepage. Some information regarding dosage, prescription and compositions of medications may have changed in the meantime. Reading an internet page cannot replace visiting a doctor - it may be that during an examination and subsequent discussion with your doctor, other information is also communicated as a result of new scientific knowledge.
