About the program:
This program is aimed at conservative therapy for patients recovering from a lateral collateral ligament sprain.
You may begin this program after consulting your physician or a member of our team. It is advisable to start a few days after the injury, when the swelling goes down.
The goal of the program is to restore mobility in the knee and to eliminate bad compensatory habits. Performing the exercises daily greatly improves the trophic condition of the musculature and structures that form the joint. This in turn accelerates the therapeutic result.
For a full and timely recovery, it is necessary to perform the exercises daily.
What the program contains:

All rehabilitation exercises are only to be performed until you feel a stretch up to a mild discomfort. Under no circumstances should you cause yourself any pain. If you feel any pain, please take a short break and resume exercising at a reduced strain level. Overexertion will slow down the recovery process!

The lateral collateral ligament is located on the lateral (outer) side of the knee joint. It is one of the main stabilizers of the joint. It starts at the lateral epicondyle of the femur and attaches at the other end to the head of the fibula.
Lateral collateral ligament sprains are rare, as this ligament is part of a sophisticated ligamentous complex at the posterolateral corner. Such injuries tend to result from low energy trauma and often coincide with soft tissue structures also being affected. The LCL plays a substantial role in outer knee stability. Statistics don’t show any clear indication of a particular group or profession being affected, but any strain on the knee that causes it to turn outward and back could lead to an LCL injury.
