The popliteus is a tiny little muscle that can often times be over-called-upon by the brain to flex the knee. Yes, that is ONE of the actions of this muscle, but it is not the best muscle for that job! When this happens chronically, the popliteus becomes a little angry and needs some mobility or "release."
 

The difference between mobility and flexibility is the power of control you have over that range of motion. Building mobility in your body helps alleviate a plethora of aches and pains we feel on a day-to-day basis.

In an attempt to stick to my philosophy of "Fix the Why" - sometimes it isn't the fault of your low back or neck for why your low back or neck hurt! If your mid spine (your thoracic spine) is rigid into a flexed position that forces your more mobile areas like your low back and neck to compensate.
