What is Popliteus Tendinitis?

The popliteus tendon is located at the posterior (back) and lateral (outside) aspect of the knee and helps to flex (bend) and internally (inwardly) rotate the knee. Popliteus Tendinitis occurs when the popliteus tendon has been irritated, often from repetitive downhill walking or running, resulting in pain and inflammation around the tendon.

Popliteus Tendinitis presents similarly to ITB syndrome.
