Physiotherapy for Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) injury

People commonly damage their Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) by a powerful force to the front of the upper shin, making it painful to walk.

A person with a PCL injury will benefit from physiotherapy treatment at Manchester Physio. A specialised rehabilitation programme from one of our dedicated physiotherapists at Manchester Physio will improve the movement in your knee and strengthen your muscles around it, so that you can return to everyday and sporting activities safely and effectively as soon as possible.
