Common Knee Conditions - IT Band Syndrome

The IT Band is a sheath of fascia beginning at the hip and extending all the way down the outer thigh, ending just below the knee. The IT Band helps stabilize the knee during running and walking. Tightness or overuse of the IT Band can cause it to become inflamed, creating considerable pain and tenderness at the outer knee area, and sometimes at the hip. Once this inflammation develops, it is difficult to get rid of and is commonly referred to as IT Band Syndrome or ITBS.

IT Band Syndrome

The use of kinesiology taping in the treatment of IT Band Syndrome has been shown to provide relief of pain, swelling, and inflammation, as well as accelerate the healing process by improving blood and lymphatic circulation. The taping protocol is simple, and can easily be mastered by anyone, even if they have no training in how to apply kinesiology tape.
