ACL/PCL

What is it?

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) attach at the distal (bottom) end of the femur (thighbone) and proximal (top) end of the tibia (shinbone). The ACL/PCL play an important role in stabilizing the patella (knee).

Why do I have it?

Often involving a loud “pop”, severe pain and swelling, ACL/PCL tears occur when sudden stops and changes in direction take place. This injury is common with falls and seen frequently in basketball, soccer, volleyball and football.

When does it hurt?

Weight-bearing activities such as standing and walking are likely to cause increased pain.

The Bracing Experts Advice:

Instability is a major concern with individuals suffering from an ACL/PCL injury. Many light-weight bracing options are available to support the patella and prevent hyper-extension/ flexion during daily activity.
