Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) tears are less common than ACL injuries due to the greater strength of the PCL, nearly twice the thickness. PCL injuries are often due to a blow to the shin whilst the knee is bent e.g. striking the knee against the dashboard during a car accident or falling whilst the knee is bent during sport.
