Identifying IT band syndrome

What is IT band syndrome?

Iliotibal Band Syndrome, or IT Band Syndrome, is when the thick band of connective tissue between the hip and the outside of the knee becomes overworked and inflamed. The IT band provides support for the knee joint. Therefore people suffering with IT band syndrome will often experience pain when weight is put on the knee.

What causes IT band syndrome?

Any activity that involves the knees turning inward can put stress on the IT band. This is why runners are often susceptible to IT band syndrome. If runners wear worn out shoes, or spend a lot of time running on declines, the IT band can rub up against the knees, leading it to become inflamed.
