Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction

Although the PCL is rarely operated on in isolation, surgeries here are more common where there are lesions  to other cruciate ligaments as well. Grafts taken from gracilis tissues are common here, as with ACL Reconstructions. Braces are used to immobilise the knee following surgery, to maximise natural recovery and healing.

Post-operative rehabilitation will begin by carefully recovering flexion movements for around 3 months before free movement of the joint is allowed. Strengthening the quadriceps through work in the gym, using electrical stimulation then active exercise forms the initial process of rehabilitation.

Recovery from this type of knee surgery will typically take around five months, with acquatherapy, physiotherapy and on-field rehab all playing a key role.
