Return to Play after Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries

In this review, Dr. Marx describes how rehabilitation plays a critical role in the outcome after posterior cruciate ligament injury and the ability to return to athletics. The primary focus of post-injury or post-operative rehabilitation is to restore function, as it relates to range of motion, strength, and proprioception, while mitigating swelling and pain. The patients’ desired sport and level of play dictate return to play timelines. The literature supports the use of non-operative management of isolated PCL injuries in athletes and non-athletes with excellent functional and patient-reported outcomes.
