Mirja E Suffer from Iliotibial Band Syndrome or Runner's Knee?  Tribe

I technically don't have runner's knee, but have weak knees (you can read more from my bio). most helpful for such a knee is strong muscles on the legs, they help keep the leg stable. So provided there is no pain,...

Hilary N Suffer from Iliotibial Band Syndrome or Runner's Knee?  Tribe

Contributorsilver Hilary N Hello everyone and happy new year! Just found this group--I have been suffering from IT Band problems on my left side on and off for about a year and a half now. I'm sick of it and ready to take control of the problem! It looks like the foam roller is a great way to combat this, so I'm definitely planning on becoming more consistent in using that. I always stretch before and after running. I am hoping to get my gait checked out sometime in the next month or two. If anyone else has other suggestions, I'd love to hear them! I'm signed up for my second half marathon in May 2014 and would like to consider a full marathon after I work through these problems.

Pam B Suffer from Iliotibial Band Syndrome or Runner's Knee?  Tribe

Thanks Sheri. I have registered to do a 10km and 5km run in the Masters Games in 4 weeks. After that I'll drop my training right down and concentrate on sorting things out. I have been to a physiotherapist who diagnosed patella femoral syndrome in...

Sheri H Suffer from Iliotibial Band Syndrome or Runner's Knee?  Tribe

Those are two different things Pam. Patella femoral syndrome is a pain that comes from the knee, ITB  pain comes from the ITB rubbing over the lateral epicondyle. Your issue could be coming from a bio mechanical problem that's resulting in your kn...

Pam B Suffer from Iliotibial Band Syndrome or Runner's Knee?  Tribe

Hi guys and gals,

I have been diagnosed with patella femoral syndrome in my right knee, which I guess is very similar to ITB? My left knee is headng that way too, but my right knee is far worse - finding a comfortable position to sit or sleep in...

Jane H Suffer from Iliotibial Band Syndrome or Runner's Knee?  Tribe

Hi Kimberley, 

Start off by laying side on the roller, gently rolling down the length of your thigh, from just under the hip, down to just above the knee (avoid the joints, just roll over the muscle) If it hurts put your weight onto your arms, ro...

Hello fellow sufferers ;)

I am, unfortunately, quite familiar with the pain of both IT band sydrome and runner's knee. I have been a regular at my physiotherapist's office. Once I was introduced to the foam roller though, things got much better ...
