Many athletes use a chiropractor to treat IT band syndrome. Often their pain starts on the outside of their knee but they know their back and hip mechanics aren’t good either.
 
First of all, what is your IT band? It’s the band of connective tissue that starts on your Ilium (the side ridge of your pelvis) and runs down the side of your leg and then attaches into the weight bearing bone of your lower leg (your tibia) near your knee.
 
IT band syndrome is very common in runners and cyclists. If their core stability isn’t strong to hold their pelvis in neutral as they run, they start shifting their hips to one side with every stroke.
 
When someone comes to our office for chiropractic treatment of IT band syndrome, we assess his or her lower back mechanics. We also check the mobility of their hips (the actual femoral heads) and then we locate big pieces of scar tissue in the IT band and surrounding muscles.
 
Is it fun? No. Is it effective? Yes. Does it help? Absolutely.
 
If you are having problems with your IT band, call us today to find out what your treatment options are.
