How long should a sprained MCL take to heal?
Coming off a ladder 3 weeks ago, bent my right knee sideways . Urgent care said no tears, just sprained, after xrays. Go forth and walk on it. It's still stiff and a little swollen, but not on crutches or using a brace anymore. Finally two nights ago, worked it until I could bend it almost all the way. Now I can go up and down stairs, but if I don't use it for a while, it is painful to bend and completely straighten. Any idea how long the swelling will last or what I can do to speed this up?

It took me exactly 4 weeks to rid myself of this pain and swelling, I did everything I was told at the emergency room, nothing helped but to elevate it as much as I could, the ice packs didnt work. They said it would be a while for it to heal THE SAME DIAGNOSIS YOU RECEIVED... One of your answers from someone else said to use warm water or heat .. note *** I WAS TOLD NOT TO USE HEAT ??

I recomend heat therapy. Go take a bucket or container, fill it with very warm water. let it soak for a little bit. Take it our and try walking. If there is improvement, continue as needed. Staying off of your injured MCL will only slow your progress. while you shouldn't over work the MCL, be consistant. If you want to know more please go to www.webmd.com

4-5 weeks

get some therapy,what ill do if im your therapist is ,have you use your brace when your up,no exercise and stretching if you have pain.as for the use of ice or heat pad, it depends,if you have swelling but its not red, you can put hot pack.
ultrasound treatment in therapy helps in healing your ligaments.
as for how long 6-8 wks for our soft tissues to heal

I'm an ice hockey goaltender and have sprained my MCL pretty badly before. At its worst, it took several weeks to heal completely, probably about 6 weeks total. I'm sure the length varies depending on how badly you injured it, but can still ice the knee to keep the swelling down.

The real problem is that you still have to use it so much during the day. If you could just rest and rehab it, it might heal faster, but unless you're unemployed (which I don't think you are), you won't get to do that. Try icing it down for about 10 minutes at a time when you are resting in the evening. Don't overdo the stretching, either. In a few more weeks, you should be pain free.
