ITB Friction Syndrome
What is ITB Friction Syndrome?
ITB Friction Syndrome (ITBFS) presents as an ache on the outer side of the knee and is commonly seen in distance runners. The pain is often worse when running downhill. It results from rubbing and irritation of the bone underlying the fibrous band like structure that runs between the hip and knee as the knee is repeatedly bent and straightened.
How ITB Friction Syndrome Happens
Several factors can contribute to ITBFS. These include a tight illio-tibiaI band, tight muscles attaching to the illio-tibial band, poor muscle strength and stability at the hip and over-pronation at the feet.
