Pain behind the kneei popliteus muscle

I've a pal whois presently working with ipain behind the kneei, and it reminded me of times I had this dilemma secondary school. Our trainer had us doing iplyometricsi stuffi jumping through ropes and over obstacles. I always had a tendency to itweaki things when I did anything extra for my lower bodyi this is why right now, Iim careful with anything I do outside of running. Nothing more disheartening than to aimlessly modify anything whilst NOT running! I think the muscle I tweaked was the popliteus musclei itis a very modest muscle behind the knee, and itis very hard to a target for stretching\/rehabi. but you definitely feel it if itis modified and then attempting to drive off while running!
Before a useful article was finally found by me on the interneti fortunately, I went for 2 months with this irritating pain, this was if the net was around (about early 2,000). Iive held the article since because I was helped by it and was insightful! pain behind knee. Hereis the article:
Behind Difficulty Knees
iThe most effective therapy to a wounded popliteus is by hand used trigger point therapy and ultrasound. While several muscles respond effectively to self-applied massaging or kneading, the popliteus muscle should be approached carefully. It overlies the popliteal fossa that will be laden with vulnerable arteries and nerves where harm via an excessive amount of strain is possible.
The popliteus muscle is slightly stretched when the hamstrings are stretched. To strengthen the muscle, take a seat on a top couch with your legs holding off the bottom. Employing accommodating tubing secured at one end, put another end round the inside your foot and switch your foot and lower calf inward. Use reduced resistance and high duplication, recalling that isn't a robust muscle.

The element featured above is what I did so to get on the problem. I fundamentally seated on a dining table with my legs dangling, draped a around my foot and strapped it around my knee, and then I tried to go my foot in that method till I felt like it was istretchingi the popliteus behind my kneei I absolutely felt it in this muscle, therefore I believed it was changed!

I did so this exercise for 2 daysi. and it absolutely was gone! It was the best experience on the planet to own simply fixed the problem.
I would add this isnit the only cause of ipain behind the kneei. There might be numerous things improper, whether with the hamstrings, leg, IT group, sciatic nerve, a tumor, and sometimes even structurally in the knee (~miniscus). Itis worth a go however, trying the exercise above, meeting with a PT, or getting guide treatment.

Should you ever experience this problem, or know another person who doesi. pass along this hint, and preferably it helps others!
