PCL Tear (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) is most common in football, and basketball where cutting and pivoting occurs or when the front part of the knee gets hyperextended.
*Interesting fact, PCL injuries are much less common than ACL injuries.*
The focus of post-rehabilitation is strengthening the quadriceps muscles because these muscles add stability to the PCL-deficient knee.
After the athlete has had time to rehab either from non surgical (3-6 months) or from surgical repair (at least 6 months), they must progress slowly and perform exercises such as running, cutting, twisting, and jumping to mimic movements of their sport.
