IT Band Syndrome (ITBS) & ART®

 

IT Band Syndrome, aka ITBS & ART®


IT Band Syndrome or ITBS is a common running injury, which can be put runners down for months at a time if not treated correctly.  Much research suggests the importance of strength of the gluteus medius and the core as being some of the contributing factors resulting in lateral knee pain, as well as improper gait.

Our treatment for IT Band Syndrome (ITBS) consists of removing scar tissue from the IT Band as it crosses the lateral aspect of the femur.  Active Release is a great way to remove this scar tissue, usually within 6 to 10 session.  Active Release combined with strengthening of the proper areas of the hip generally resolves the condition fairly quickly with a very high success rate.

If you need more information check out the video above.

If your current treatment, of lack there of, is not addressing your “ IT Band Syndrome ” within a short time frame (a few weeks), you might consider looking for a route.  Even great sports doctors, physical therapist, and chiropractors sometimes miss easy cases of “ IT Band Syndrome,” especially if they are not looking beyond the IT Band.  Personally I have had “ IT Band Syndrome ” before and in my case it too was Popliteus Tendonitis instead.

 

Learn from my mistakes and stop putting all of your time into reading the thousands of threads on IT Band Syndrome (ITBS) on Runners World Forums.  The Internet has a wealth of information on it but much of it can be wrong and un-original.  Save yourself the trouble.
