Popliteus & lack of full knee extension

By in Blog with 0 Comments

Popliteus is a one-joint muscle that provides stability to the knee. It is prone to compensating for two-joint synergist muscles upon their failure to properly execute movement.

Those of you more familiar with massage and physical therapy will recognize these as illustrations from Thomas Myers' Anatomy Trains.
