Popliteus tendonitis is an inflammation of the popliteus tendon that extends from the outer surface of the Femurbodens obliquely above the rear knee medial upper tibia. A Popliteus tendinitis is very unusual. The popliteus tendon prevents the outward rotation of the lower leg to the outside while running and also helps to prevent the forward motion of the femur on the tibial. Extensive Berablaufen tends to burden this tendon bsonders. Pain and soreness develop along the posterolateral knee especially when running downhill. The diagnosis is made because of the physical examination. The patient sits with the affected limb crosswise, d. H. the hip is rotated, rotates outward and inward with knees bent while the leg is laid over the other limb. The examiner then scans the rear lateral corner from pressure on pain sensitivity. The differential diagnosis of the described posterior knee pain should always intra-articular pathology, such as for example, include a posterior horn tear of the meniscus. Treatment includes immobilization, NSAIDs, ice and occasionally physical therapy. Patients should be encouraged, as long as no longer to train until the area is free from pain. The training should be restricted and the Berablaufen be set at least 6 weeks. Cycling is a good alternative training during the healing phase.
