Non-Operative PCL Rehabilitation – How to degisn a conservative management plan

We have a new knee course for you on Physioplus.

Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tears comprise 3% of outpatient knee injuries and 38% of acute traumatic knee haemarthroses. These injuries rarely occur in isolation, and up to 95% of PCL tears occur in combination with other ligament tears. PCL tears are increasingly being recognized as source of morbidity and reduced function because of persistent instability, pain, impaired function and development of degenerative joint disease but they still get less attention than the ACL.

There is increasing evidence to support non-operative mangement of the PCL after injury and this new course by Luke O’Brien will take you through how to maximise the outcome for your patients.

Non-operative PCL Rehabilitation

The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is a major knee stabilizer and its injury can result in long term consequences. In some cases, a non-operative approach to treatment has shown positive outcomes and long term benefits. In this course, you will learn about the decision-making process to guide PCL management and the components of a successful conservative rehabilitation plan. This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
