MCL & PCL Injuries

Understanding Your Knee Pain

Your knee joint is held together by four ligaments:

  • ACL: Anterior Cruciate Ligament
  • LCL: Lateral Cruciate Ligament
  • MCL: Medial Cruciate Ligament
  • PCL: Posterior Cruciate Ligament

If any of these ligaments are torn, injured, or otherwise damaged, you may feel pain and instability in your knee.

What Causes an MCL or PCL Injury?

Athletes are more likely than the average non-athlete person to sustain an injury to their MCL or PCL due to the way their bodies move while playing sports and being active. MCL and PCL injuries are caused by traumatic injuries such as a twisting injury, a fall with force, or excess force on the knee joint.

About the PCL

The PCL is approximately two inches long. It’s purpose is to connect the tibia (shinbone) at back of your knee to your femur. As a result, the PCL limits the tibia’s ability to move backward.

PCL Tear

A PCL tear can result from overextending or twisting your knee. This type of knee injury will leave your knee unstable and possibly unable to support your weight without significant pain or struggle. Schedule an appointment today.

Nick Cangemi

Went to Zion Medical for a knee injury, which turned out to be a torn ACL. The amazing doctors and staff were able to successfully surgically repair my ACL, and I was back on the pickleball courts faster than initially assumed! I would never recommend another orthopedist before Dr. McGraw!

Brittany Hodges

Got a shot in my back yesterday by Dr Thomas. Was not ready for or expecting this weird uncomfortable sensation the shot gave, but putting my trust in him, I am feeling like a million bucks today!!! Thanks to everyone there for a quick comfortable visit and finally some real relief
