What is the PCL?


Location of the PCL

The Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) is located in the back of the knee. It forms an “X” with the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) inside the knee joint. The PCL works with the ACL to control the back-and-forth movements of the knee. It also prevents the shinbone from moving too far back in the knee joint.


The PCL is one of several ligaments in the knee that connects the shinbone to the thighbone.


The PCL is the strongest ligament in the knee and is harder to injure than the other knee ligaments. It is often injured along with other structures in the knee, such as the meniscus, other ligaments, and even bone. The majority of PCL Injuries are mild and can be healed without the aid of surgery.

ruptured acl and meniscus


I already undergoes a knee surgery,, I  ruptured my ACl and meniscus  issue. even though i do a rehabilitation,  it's been three months. but the pain is still there/ sharp pains/ clicking noise of my knee/stiffness/numbness and it continue to swell. Does it safe to use King brand BFST Knee Wrap and Knee ColdCure Wrap. They implant a screw in my knees for the reconstruction. 


Re: ruptured acl and meniscus


Hi Frithjov:

I would like to thank you for contacting us on our forum, and I'm sorry for the pain that you're experiencing at the moment!

There's a couple of things that I would like to address. Sharp pains and clicking could mean that you could have potentially re-injured yourself, and I suggest that you make a call to your physician and address the clicking and pain that you are feeling.

As for the stiffness, numbness and swelling you are feeling in your knee, the ColdCure wrap is what you will want to focus on for the next while to target the inflammation as that will alleviate most of those symptoms.

Once the swelling, and inflammation are under control, the BFST will continue with your recovery. The BFST is extremely safe to use regardless of any hardware that they have placed in your knee as it meets very high standards of quality, safety and efficacy.

As we have so much information spread all across our website, I encourage you to read  our page on: Knee Pain Treatment

I would encourage you to call our Treatment Advisors to help you through every step of your treatments by calling us at 844-400-2525.

Best regards,
King Brand
