Grade III MCL TearA grade III injury is a complete tear of the MCL. Patients have significant pain and swelling, and often have difficulty bending the knee. Instability, or giving out, is a common finding with grade III MCL tears. A knee brace or a knee immobilizer is usually needed for comfort, and healing may take 6 weeks or longer.
Not making excuses here. Just wanting to push PPP's post down the page. I'm not ready for a post mortem yet - lots of time for that.
This, however, is a joke.
