Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) lesion

The new guidelines after injury of the posterior cruciate ligament, favor a conservative treatment, without resorting to surgery; this because the rear knee ligament is the one that less participates in the stabilization of the same during movement (it has an active role only during knee hyperextension).

In the initial stages, the rehabilitation treatment is similar to that of the most common knee sprains with the aim to reduce swelling and recover joint movement, with care to avoid knee extension movements ceiling.

Once you reach the goal you can move on to the stage of muscle recovery, primarily the muscles that limit the hyperextension, such as knee flexors in both concentric and eccentric mode, triceps, especially the twins; will be simultaneously reinforced the quadriceps, especially with eccentric exercises, the muscles of the core (important for overall body stabilization) which will be linked to proprioceptive and coordinative exercises.

After passing the isokinetic testing (no difference in strength between the two limbs) you will advance to the stage of recovery of the sport specific gesture with functional strength exercises and exercises on the sports field and implemented movement education and prevention program through running the Movement Analysis Test (MAT) in the Green room.
