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.

Staying active with a Bakers Cyst


We have the discussion with many of our customers on how can continue staying active while dealing with their injury.  We always recommend to rest and not to push it.  The last thing you would want to do is re-injure or further aggravate the knee.  Keeping the inflammation down behind the knee is the best way the stimulated blood flow will effectively heal the underlying issue causing the cyst.

For those who continue to stay active, what are some of the exercises or modifications on exercises you recommend?

Swimming? Yoga?
