Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injury
What is it?
The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury is a condition that affects the ligaments of the knee. PCL has an essential function in knee stability which prevents the femur to forward and tibia to displace backward. The PCL injury is less common than the anterior cruciate ligament injury. It is because the posterior cruciate ligament is much stronger and broader compared to the ACL.
