Hi This is Amit from India. I was involved in a bad accident with in a bike about four month ago.My MRI results say that I have PCL Tear in left knee.With the help of

rehabilitation exercises now I can walk slowly without knee instability.But I still get pain when the knee is under stress, ie, walking up and down stairs, walking

down hill. Not much confidence in knee.
Although I have met some of the patient with ACL injury. they said like after the operation , they are perfectly fine. Unfortunately I could not met any PCL injured

person. Or may be that is a rare injury....

I have consulted many doctors . Some doc says it will be ok by the time , but some says this-PCL is very important to operate.So I am confused what to do ..? Also I

have read that PCL Treatment is controversial as there are many methods,each with their own benefits.



I am wondering if anyone of you can suggest how and what treatment is best for PCL ligament. Any Related information will be really helpful.

Needed your prompt Reply.

-Amit
