Dolor del ligamento medial colateral

Para el tratamiento inicial de una lesión LMC se recomienda colocación de hielo en el área, elevación de la articulación por encima del nivel del corazón, medicamentos antiinflamatorios no esteroideos (AINES) y actividad física limitada hasta que el dolor y la inflamación se hayan aliviado. Se debe utilizar un inmovilizador articulable de rodillas para proteger el ligamento. El alcance de este tipo de lesión es generalmente un estiramiento excesivo del ligamento que causa dolor y sensibilidad.Dolor del ligamento medial colateral
