Torn PCL
« on: May 03, 2015, 01:06:26 AM »
Scenario:Torn PCL in my right knee, no other damage. One year of college basketball eligibility and will graduate in spring 2016. (No redshirt available)

I would like to avoid a surgery that would keep me out whenever the off season begins in September. Do I have any options that could help ease pain and allow me to have mobility back even if in a brace. Only real pain I have left is when I go to bend the knee to extreme ranges and there is some fluid left in the right side of the knee. When I wake up I feel as if it is stiff. Icing 3 times a day along with some mild cardio on a elliptical and hot tubbing directly after.

would cortisone shots and draining help?
