Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) Injuries

Strong bands of tissue called "ligaments" help stabilize the bones that form the knee joint. One of these ligaments is called the "PCL." It helps connect the femur to the tibia. If you stretch or tear a PCl, your knee may become unstable. The PCL can also tear leading to even greater instability. Diagnosis is made by physical examination and MRI.
