What is iliotibial band syndrome?
Iliotibial band syndrome occurs when the iliotibial (IT) band, the thick collection of fibers that runs from the outside of the hips down to the shin, becomes tight and creates friction against the knee. The symptoms of this condition often include pain around the outside of the knee, as well as aching and a popping sensation in the knee joint. These symptoms may subside temporarily with stretching, but they often return and worsen as time goes on.
What does iliotibial band syndrome treatment involve?
With a doctor’s guidance, many patients with iliotibial band syndrome find adequate relief from their symptoms using self-care measures and conservative treatments. For example, a treatment plan may include physical therapy and lifestyle modifications such as rest and regular stretching regimens.
