What is ITB syndrome?
IT band syndrome is a common overuse injury for runners. It occurs when the iliotibial band—a thick band of connective tissue that runs from the outside of your hip to the outside of the knee—is tight or inflamed. The most typical and notable symptom of IT band syndrome is pain on the outside of the knee. A knee injury will usually swell, so if you don’t have any swelling, and you’re consistently experiencing this pain about five to seven minutes into every run, it’s possible you have ITBS. The pain may gradually occur as you continue your run but you might feel no pain when you begin.
Wearing an IT Band strap for your knee helps relieve pain from ITBS. The strap works by relieving tension and prevent rubbing of the IT band on your femur. In addition to using a strap for ITBS, make sure you add foam rolling, icing, and rest for your IT Band pain relief and recovery. We recommend that you take advice from a medical professional on the best treatment plan for your injury.
