What is ITB syndrome?

Iiliotibial band syndrome (ITB is a common overuse injury in 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. Symptoms develop gradually, often recurring at a specific point in a run. Rest improves things only for the pain to return when you go back to normal running.

How does an ITB strap work?

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.
