Iliotibial Band Syndrome (cont.)


As with any overuse injury, once the first episode is resolved, it is important for the patient to assess why the iliotibial band became inflamed in the first place. Recommendations from the physical therapist regarding training techniques, footwear options, the need for orthotics, and proper stretching will be helpful in preventing the recurrence of symptoms.

Ideally, the goal for the patient will be to return to the level of activity enjoyed prior to the injury.
