ITB Syndrome: Avoid Icing, Stretching, and Orthotics

Tags: , ,


ITB Syndrome is a common and quite painful leg/knee injury that can leave runners, triathletes, and even cyclists out of commission for months.  It often presents itself as pain on the outside of the leg, typically near the lower part of the knee. In this video,  Sock Doc (aka Dr. Steve Gangemi) discusses the reasons for ITBS – muscle imbalances, anaerobic excess, improper footwear -  as well as  treatments you may want to consider, including those you should avoid such as icing, stretching, and orthotics.
