Here Is Everything You Need To Know About
Iliotibial Pain Band Syndrome (IT Band)

How does it feel?

  • Sharp
  • Tightness
  • Stiffness
  • Dull
  • Aching
  • Throbbing
  • Clicking
  • Snapping

Signs and Symptoms

  • Stabbing or stinging pain along the outside of the knee.
  • A feeling of the IT band “snapping” over the knee as it bends and straightens.
  • Swelling near the outside of your knee.
  • Occasional tightness and pain at the outside of the hip.
  • Continuous pain following activity, particularly with walking, climbing, or descending stairs, or moving from a sitting to standing position.

Diagnosis

  • We conduct a thorough examination including the back, hips, knee, and ankle/foot. We analyze lifting techniques to help determine the root cause of your symptoms to ensure that physical therapy treatment is the best option for you.
  • We examine posture, range of motion, strength, reflexes, sensation, soft tissue mobility, joint mobility, nerve mobility, and functional movements to create a custom treatment plan. We also take into account any imaging that you have had like X-Rays, MRI, CT scans, etc.
  • We take great pride in helping our fitness athletes. We focus on breaking down lifting techniques to find any faults that may be contributing to your pain. We often find that the true cause of your pain lies in a different region due to weakness, limited mobility, or poor technique.
  • We also find that most knee pain is due to technique faults caused by limited strength or mobility in the hips. Limited mobility in the thoracic spine, shoulders, and ankles can also lead to increased stress on the knees. We focus on a whole body approach to treat your back pain and keep it away long-term.

Can Physical Therapy Help?

  • Yes!!! Recent onset of symptoms typically results in a quicker recovery time of about 1-2 months. Whereas persistent symptoms that have lasted longer than 6 months, usually takes 2-6 months to recover.
  • Good news!!! Recent research has actually shown that physical therapy is a better option than surgery, pain medication and injections. We can help you avoid unnecessary invasive procedures and tests that cost a fortune with limited effectiveness.
