What is IT Band Syndrome?
IT Band Syndrome is a painful condition that is brought about when the structures under the IT Band, on the outside your knee, get inflamed due to excess stress and overuse.
The IT Band is a big tendon-like structure that runs on the outside of your leg from the hip all the way to the knee. It’s a really important structure that provides a lot of stability for the knee during walking and running activities.
It’s a common injury in runners because of the repetitive nature of running. But it’s most prevalent in runners who have weaknesses in the hip and core muscles because the IT Band relies on the support of a stable pelvis during running. If the pelvis moves around, shifts side to side, or rotates, then extra stress is transferred down the leg through the IT Band. Over time, this extra stress and strain leads to irritation, inflammation, and pain at the bottom of the IT Band.
How is IT Band Syndrome Treated?
The most effective treatment for IT Band Syndrome is exercise rehabilitation focusing on strengthening the muscles around the pelvis, hips and knees.
Strengthening these muscles – in particular, the glutes, abdominals, hamstrings and quads – will reduce the stress on the IT Band, ensure that the pelvis stays stable when you run and improve your running form.
Some runners who have IT Band Syndrome might also need to cut back on training, or stop running for a few weeks to help the pain & inflammation settle down. During this period of recovery it’s essential to begin a good exercise rehabilitation program. This will ensure that the cause of your IT Band pain – the weakness in the hips and core – is addressed and that your return to running will be pain free.
Who is This Program Suitable For?
This program is designed for runners who are seeking to recover from an IT Band injury. Specifically, you should have confirmed this diagnosis with a medical professional and received clearance to commence exercise rehabilitation.
It is not suitable for people suffering from a traumatic leg or knee injury, such as fractures or sprains, or who have had recent surgery. It’s not suitable for anyone who is affected by mobility and fitness to an extent where they can’t get up or down off the ground, squat to a chair, or stand on one leg.
Do I Still Need Massage or Other ‘Hands-On’ Physio as Well?
In short, no. Scientific evidence states that runners with IT Band Syndrome recover best with an exercise rehabilitation program. Getting strong is your best path for recovery – whether you do that at home or with a local physiotherapist.
Of course, if you are currently receiving treatment such as massage or dry-needling and find that helps your pain, that’s great! Keep going to those appointments and use this program as your exercise rehabilitation to boost your recovery.
What Equipment Will I Need? Will I Need Access to a Gym?
No, you won’t need access to a gym. Every exercise can be easily be done at home. You’ll need a foam roller (or a pool noodle or a rolling pin wrapped in a towel if you don’t have one), a massage ball, a resistance band, a couch, a towel, and a step. If you don’t have these they can be found online or at major retailers at reasonable prices.
Does the Program Account for Different Fitness Levels?
Yes. It’s structured in a way that accommodates varying fitness levels but will gradually build and progress over the program. At first, we will address your foundational strength, something critical for both beginners and advanced runners because it examines good movement and correct form, and then gradually grows to more challenging exercises.
Can I Try The Program for Free?
Yes! When you sign up, you’ll have access to the first week of the program for free.
