The PCL (Posterior crucial ligament) is a ligament in the knee that acts to stabilise your joint, preventing the lower leg sliding back too far and keeping you stable when you're planted on the ground. Often injured playing more physical sports like hockey, rugby and even martial arts, treating it usually combines physiotherapy and strengthening with a PCL brace.
Wearing a support to protect and stabilise your ligaments can make all the difference for a long lasting recovery. Bauerfeind have a range of PCL braces to give you the protection you need and get back into the game.
Will these heal my PCL?
When a ligament is damaged, bracing alone isn't a quick fix that solves all the problems. Combining a knee brace with targeted physiotherapy, medical instruction and in some cases surgery is the best long-term solution to healing the PCL. This also changes from person to person, depending on age, severity of the injury and lifestyle.
