The PCL, similar to the ACL, connects the femur to the tibia. Tears of the PCL are less common than ACL injuries among people. Sports are a common cause of PCL injury, particularly in football, soccer, skiing, and baseball.
The incidence rate of PCL tear is about 1.8 times higher in males. PCL tears often occur with meniscal and articular cartilage injuries.
-Most PCL injuries are caused by a sudden blow to the knee while it’s bent.
-There are several ways your PCL can be damaged.
-Something causes your knee to move backward very quickly.
-Your knee twists or overextends in a sudden movement.
-You fall or get tackled, landing on your bent knee with your foot pointing downward.
-This can happen while playing sports like football or soccer.

I have been visiting the clinic for the past two years and my experience has been great. Dr. Kant is very knowledgeable and he treats his patients with full dedication and patience. I underwent treatment for my neck and back pain and I got relief after just a few sessions of dry needling. So, I would recommend everyone to visit KALP HEALTH CARE for any kind of physiotherapy treatment.
At the age of 53, a back problem is scary when a doctor tells you that you need 10 days of bed rest or surgery! I went to Kalp expecting the usual steps of physiotherapy, but I couldn't even stand up straight or get out of bed without shooting pain. This is an example of not judging a book by its cover. Dr. Kant is a simple man but a magician when it comes to his treatment. He is passionate and positive about his treatment and knows the human body like the back of his hand. A dedicated team with Dr. Monika and Dr. Rakesh got me on my feet in just 3 days. This is the best treatment I could have asked for!
Dr. Kant and his clinic are excellent in treating muscular and spinal issues - it's very clean and hygienic. Dr. Kant has great understanding and knowledge, quickly reaching to the root of what's wrong and able to provide Relief within a few sessions. I found a solution to my spine problem after seeking treatment from Dr. Kant - I had tried all kinds of treatments before but hadn't been able to find any relief.

Recovery time can vary from person to person. If your injury is mild, it may only take about 10 days to heal. If you’ve had surgery to repair your PCL, recovery could take about six to nine months.
The PCL is usually injured by overextending the knee (hyperextension). This can happen if you land awkwardly after jumping. The PCL can also become injured from a direct blow to the flexed knee, such as falling hard on a bent knee. Most PCL injuries occur with other ligament injuries and severe knee trauma.
PCL injuries are usually partial ligament tears, and typically heal on their own, without causing stability issues, so long as the knee is protected during healing, and there are no other knee joint injuries. However, PCL injuries can lead to osteoarthritis of the knee.
A person may have trouble bending the knee, resulting in a limp or difficulty going up or down stairs. Difficulty bearing weight. The injured knee may be difficult or painful to stand or walk on, especially for long periods of time.
Generally, when a PCL tear occurs, it is partial, meaning that the tear does not go all the way through the ligament. Occasionally, the tear will go completely through the ligament. Partial tears are able to heal on their own, while complete tears may need surgical repair.
