Exercises For ITB Pain & Lateral Knee Pain
Physio David Castle-Burns demonstrates two exercises that may help with Lateral Knee Pain or ITB pain.
Commonly seen in runners and athletes, Iliotibial band syndrome (ITB) is an overuse injury causing pain on the outside part of the knee especially during running when the heel strikes the ground.
Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) and anti-inflammatory medications are first-line treatments.
Physiotherapy is helpful to identify muscleimbalances, biomechanical problems and then to develop an appropriate strengthening and treatment plan.
Prevention includes maintaining flexibility and strength of the low back, hips, knees, and leg muscles, and is key to avoiding recurrence.
Iliotibial band syndrome is sometimes called ITBS, IT band syndrome, ITB syndrome, and ITBFS (iliotibial band friction syndrome).
