OK, I’ve been having a problem with “popping” of my hamstrings along the very back of the knee and then I found this article on the popliteus muscle:
I noticed that I have considerable trouble straightening my legs out completely – last few degrees are a chore. Having hip and knee issues is the cause of this, but I have been working on both quad stretches and hamstring stretches where the leg is forced to be as straight as possible. I get a pronounced stretch along the back of the knees and even a fair amount of burning. Left – which had an ACL rebuild 26 years ago is worse than the right.
- anyone else ever experienced this?
- does this article seem reliable?
- the author of the article doesn’t have much advice aside from massage. Anyone got something better?
Thanks in advance!
