A tendinitis behind the knee will cause a pair of muscles that attach at the posterior tibial plateau to spasm, and pull your toes downward. So throwing a towel down there and pulling the toes back will give you symptomatic relief, but it doesn’t fix the tendinitis behind the knee.

The second possibility is a magnesium deficiency. So typically, what I have people do first is to take two chelated magnesium capsules at bedtime. Now this is not magnesium citrate, but magnesium glycinate– 150 and 300 milligrams, at night. After two or three days, the cramping should go away. If it doesn’t, then you deal with the tendinitis behind the knee.

More than likely what you’re looking at is one of those two things. The two muscles that go from the knee down to the foot, the flexor digitorum longus and the medial head of the gastrocnemius, they cause the foot pain. But there are two others. One is called the semimembranosus and then the fourth one, the semitendinosus, go from the same place all the way up to hip. So what you’re describing is spot on. Now more than likely the way that you did this was walking up either ramps, ladders, or you jumped into a hole. Okay. Because it’s an extension injury of the knees.

Start with two capsules of Magnesium Glycinate at bed time, but don’t take more than that without asking me.[/testimonial][/testimonials]
