Iliotibial Band Syndrome (cont.)

Self-Care at Home

Initial treatment for most overuse injuries remains the same: rest, ice, elevation and antiinflammatory medications. Most often, the symptoms occur with an aggressive activity like running; cross-training alternatives like bicycling or swimming may be attempted while the iliotibial band inflammation resolves.
