how long ago was your PCL injury?is it an isolated injury?no posterolateral corner injury? If its isolated and you are rehabbing i would suggest strengthening your quads aggressively.This is essentially the non-op tx for PCL tears(occ. bracing).After you have rehabbed for several months if you're knee feels unsteady or goves out climbing stairs ,etc see your ORS for evaluation for arthroscopic PCL
