Varies: There are a number of possibilities, primarily stemming from musculoskeletal to neurological abnormalities. In simple terms, genu recur stun refers to a hyperextension of the knee. The hamstrings and the intrinsic ligaments of the knee are the usual structures that limit this hyper extension.
