Popliteus contraction

The main function of the popliteus tendon is to control the internal rotation of the tibia respect to the femur and rarely enters in the cases of sport traumatology, except for the athletes who run for downhill riding or hilly or in the presence of the pathology of the valgus or pronated foot.

Contracture of the popliteal is present in people who have had a distorting event and have knee pain. When suffering from contracture of popliteal is important to keep at rest the knee and leg and treat it right away like any other muscle contracture: you can use ultrasound, hyperthermia, tens endorphin, but the essential part of the therapy is the relaxing massage but not deep, not to inflame the lymph nodes and blood vessels present in the popliteal fossa.

The second stage of the rehabilitation program consists in the execution of eccentric exercises of the calf, foot muscles, hip flexors, proprioceptive exercise to improve balance and muscle control and increase aerobic activity.

It’s very important to finish the rehabilitation program with the technical movements recovery on field, to improve the support and race trim and eliminate faulty posture that caused the injury.
