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.
