Orthotics for Iliotibial Band Syndrome

-Iliotibial Band Syndrome is an Overuse Syndrome-

iliotibial band syndrome

Correct THE CAUSE by:

1. Stop using the lower extremity, Or

2. Optimize the way force travels up through it.

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

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

Subjectively, iliotibial band pain is aggravated by running, climbing and descending stairs, or getting out of a car.

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

-Long-Term REST is NOT Okay For Those Living An Active Lifestyle!-

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

WHY it’s NOT Properly Handling Stress.

Excessive Foot Pronation aka Crappy Shock Absorber!

-That’s Why-

Instead of absorbing shock like they’re designed to, the feet are too flat and floppy.

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

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

This constant stress forces the IT Band to handle more stress with every step taken.

Until it Starts Screaming Out for Help!

This added strain on the outside of the knee, thigh and hip is magnified with activity which is why it’s coined an overuse syndrome.

Yet, if the knee is optimally aligned, your IT band can easily handle the stress it’s designed to.

Correct the cause with a Precision Calibrated Custom Foot Orthotic made to optimize foot function specific to each foots corrected Arch-Up Alignment.

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