Injuries to the collateral ligaments are usually caused by a force that pushes the knee sideways. These are often caused by contact trauma such as sports related injuries.
Injuries to the MCL are usually caused by a direct blow to the outside of the knee, and can be often related to athletic injuries.
Blows to the inside of the knee that push the knee outwards may injure the lateral collateral ligament. Lateral collateral ligament tears occur less frequently than other knee injuries.
