Medical Definition:

Pain associated with conditions of posterior meniscal tear, popliteus tendonitis or lower hamstring tear. Pain may be caused by a variety of other conditions, including peroneal or tibial nerve entrapment.

Causes:

Excessive running or any activity causing repetitive strain to the area. Activities which include explosive leg and foot action may also cause strain, resulting in a tear to the tendons or soft tissue.

Symptoms:

Meniscus tear - increased pain in back of knee with deep knee flexion.

Popliteus tendonitis- Pain behind knee during running.

Nerve entrapment - Tenderness and pain over entrapment region.

Recommended Treatment:

Reduce activity to promote healing. Ice, as recommended by a medical professional, to reduce any related inflammation and enhance the healing process. Wearing a compression wrap during activity may reduce stress to area. As with any orthopedic injury, please see a medical professional for a complete evaluation.
