Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Injury

The Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) is a ligament located in the knee joint that connects the thighbone to the shinbone. It plays a critical role in stabilizing the knee and preventing it from shifting backward. PCL tears are a common type of knee injury that occurs due to a sudden impact, such as a car accident or a fall, or a direct blow to the front of the knee. Symptoms of a PCL tear may include pain, swelling, stiffness, and instability in the knee joint. Our team of orthopedic specialists uses advanced diagnostic tools to identify PCL injuries and develop personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's specific needs. Treatment options may include physical therapy, medication, and surgery, depending on the severity of the injury. Our goal is to help patients regain full function and mobility in their knee joint, allowing them to return to their daily activities and enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle. If you're experiencing symptoms of a PCL injury, contact us today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced orthopedic specialists.
