About IT Band Syndrome | Your House Fitness | Personal Trainers

Illiotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS) is one of the most common knee problems encountered by avid runners, track and field performers, and other high endurance sports.

For the average clinician such as a physiotherapist or chiropractor, identifying ITBS is quite simple due to its same signs and symptoms. The IT Band runs from your hip to your knee. As the tissue is parallel to the femur, it located on the outer side of each leg. Due to the bands alignment, its main function is to stabilize the thigh bone with the knee during impact activities and support the patella during different movement patterns.
