There are many causes of PCL tears

Common causes of a PCL tear include sports injuries, falls, collisions, and motor vehicle crashes. This type of injury is often accompanied by additional soft tissue damage in the area such as a meniscus tear. It is important to have a chiropractor diagnose it so they can determine if further medical attention is necessary. After diagnosis, chiropractors and physiotherapists may work together to develop a treatment plan that includes stretching exercises, chiropractic manipulation, massage therapy, bracing applications and other treatments tailored to the individual’s condition. Such treatment should ensure that knee functionality can be restored as quickly as possible with minimal pain.

What is a PCL tear?

A PCL tear is a serious knee injury that involves the tearing of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), one of four major ligaments in the knee. These tears are often caused by sporting accidents or falls, resulting in significant pain and swelling in the affected area. A PCL tear can range from minor to severe, depending on the extent of damage to the ligament.

What are the symptoms of a PCL tear?

Common symptoms of a PCL tear include severe pain and swelling in the knee, an inability to extend the leg all the way, an instability when walking or running, as well as feeling a sharp or popping sensation when trying to move.

What are the treatments for a PCL tear?

When it comes to treating a PCL tear, chiropractic care and physiotherapy are two of the most common treatments. This type of injury often requires conservative treatment first, and chiropractic adjustments can help restore proper joint mobility and reduce pain. Additionally, strengthening exercises for the thighs and hamstrings can help support the knee by reducing stress on the ligaments. Physiotherapy treatments like massage therapy, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation can also be used to reduce inflammation and swelling while promoting healing. As with any injury prevention is key; however, in cases where a PCL tear occurs early diagnosis and aggressive treatment is necessary.
