Posterior Cruciate Ligament
The posterior cruciate ligament is located in the back of the knee. It is one of several ligaments that connect the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shinbone). The posterior cruciate ligament keeps the tibia from moving backwards too far. An injury to the posterior cruciate ligament requires a powerful force.
A common cause of injury is a bent knee hitting a dashboard in a car accident or a football player falling on a knee that is bent
Do you experience any of the Signs and Symptoms
• Pain with swelling that occurs steadily and quickly after the injury
• Swelling that makes the knee stiff and may cause a limp
• Difficulty walking
• The knee feels unstable, like it may “give out
What are the causes?
An injury to the posterior cruciate ligament can happen many ways. It typically requires a powerful force.
• A direct blow to the front of the knee (such as a bent knee hitting a dashboard in a car crash, or a fall onto a bent knee in sports)
• Pulling or stretching the ligament (such as in a twisting or hyperextension injury)
• Simple misstep
