PCL Reconstruction Rehabilitation – A New Course on Physioplus

A framework for posterior cruciate ligament surgery rehabilitation.

Injury to the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) can range from a stretch to a total tear or rupture of the ligament. These injuries are less common than anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries as the PCL is broader and stronger but they  can be easy to miss. Similar to the ACL the PCL is often surgically repaired if ruptured and does pose it’s unique rehab considerations. Thankfully Luke O’Brien is on hand to talk you through the details of rehab after a PCL reconstruction.

PCL Reconstruction Rehabilitation

Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries can occur in isolation and in combination with other knee pathologies. Despite being very strong, PCL tears are not uncommon however there is limited research evidence available to guide rehabilitation after reconstruction surgery. In this course, Luke O’Brien will share his experience in rehabilitating PCL injuries following surgery and how he prepares athletes to return safely to sport.
