PCL Injuries

  • When the knee is forcefully twisted or hyperextended BUT other ligaments are usually injured or torn, before the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is torn
  • Most common mechanism for PCL alone to be injured is from a direct blow to the front of the knee while the knee is bent. 
  • Automobile accident
  • Automobile strikes another and stops suddenly
  • Front passenger or driver slides forward. 
  • Bent knee hits the dashboard just below the knee cap forcing tibia backwards on the femur tearing PCL.
  • The same force can occur during a fall on the bent knee, where the force of the fall on the tibia pushes it back against the femur and tears the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL).
