Iliotibial band syndrome is a painful overuse injury to the outer part of the knee. It is common in runners and cyclist.
Signs & symptoms:
- Knee pain located on the outer side of the knee
- Pain radiates up the thigh or down the outside of the shin
- Pain made worse by running or cycling
The aim of physiotherapy is to reduce the inflammation and to identify and address the underlying postural alignment issues leading to the increased friction.
