Tight knott in back of knee
TonyiaG posted:
I have been having knee problems for some time but recently I had a new issue. My knee almost feels like it is out of place and it usually I can move it around until it "pops and releases. During the time there is a very tight knott that forms in the back of my knee. Once the knee "pops the knott goes away. I am just wondering if anyone know what might cause this problem.

Hi. I had my hip replaced just over three weeks ago. My hamstring and behind my knee of the leg of the replaced hip, was extremely tight and achy. It is due to the muscles, hamstring, leg, knee, etc..., adjusting to the hip and leg.

After a couple of weeks it goes away.

I have the same thing and the Dr says its a bakers cyst that can sometimes form after surgery or an injury. He says it will go away but its painful and I feel its limiting my ROM. Ask your Dr about that. Hope that helps some.
