PCL REPAIR

Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury - aftercare

More About Your Injury

The PCL is one of several ligaments that help keep your knee stable. The PCL helps keep your leg bones in place and allows your knee to move back and forth. It is the strongest ligament in the knee. PCL tears often occur as a result of a severe knee injury.

Injuring the PCL takes a lot of force. It can occur if you:

  • Get hit very hard on the front of your knee, such as hitting your knee on the dashboard during a car accident
  • Fall hard on a bent knee
  • Bend the knee too far backward (hyperflexion)
  • Land the wrong way after jumping

PCL injuries commonly occur with other knee damage, including injuries to the nerves and blood vessels. Skiers and people who play basketball, football, or soccer are more likely to have this type of injury.
