-Iliotibial Band Syndrome is an Overuse Syndrome-

iliotibial band syndrome

Functionally, the iliotibial band helps stabilize the knee and hip.

Anatomically, the iliotibial band is a tough fibrous band found along the outside of each thigh.

Subjectivelyiliotibial band syndrome is aggravated by running, climbing and descending stairs, or getting out of a car.

Correct THE CAUSE by:

1. Stop using the lower extremity, OR

2. Optimize the way force travels up through the area.

In the first scenario, to correct the overuse, rest is necessary – long term rest.

In the second, you’ll need to address WHY the iliotibial band is overused.

Correct THE CAUSE of iliotibial band syndrome with a Precision Calibrated Custom Foot Orthotic.

Poor Shock Absorption due to foot overpronation is the cause.

Instead of absorbing shock, the feet are flat and floppy.

As a result, the lower leg and thigh turns in creating a knock-knee effect.

This creates an overall stretch of the iliotibial band to which the body adapts by contracting.

This is Davis’ Law which basically states stuff that’s stretched contracts back. 

Until it Starts Screaming Out for Help!

This added strain is magnified with activity which is why it’s coined an overuse syndrome.

Yet, if the knee is optimally aligned, the IT band can easily handle “the stress of an active lifestyle.”

Correct the cause with a made-from-scratch custom foot orthotic specifically designed to optimize foot function specific to the individual.

This is how the knee unwinds & the IT band takes that long-awaited sigh of relief.
