since you have mentioned about the MRI here, the MRI is helpful to see the internal structures of the knee joints, which contains - the ligaments, cartilages, joint space etc. As there is a mild injury
of G1 MCL it is not too bad. As this can be corrected. Apparently most of the ligaments like anterior cruciate ligament
, posterior cruciate ligament
etc are all fine. the treatment is very simple as to first follow the protocol of RICE - Rest, Ice , Compression & Elevation.
Next step is to strengthen the muscle of the knee joint by performing specific excercise which gives less strain on the MCL and gives optimum output.
Also, performing exercises under a qualified. physical therapist will help to gain a better strength and less strain and sprain
on the muscles and ligaments.
With the grace of God I Wish you a speedy recovery
for more doubts you can ask me directly.
