Last kickoff post for this forum for now, but we can always add more.
Here’s another common injury—iliotibial band syndrome, which results in pain on the outside of the knee, not the front (that’s patellofemoral pain syndrome).
Although my IT bands are tight and sore when I roll on a foam roller, I’ve never had too much trouble with them, so again, I’m going to defer to the PainScience guy for a big overview. (And no, I don’t get a cut if anyone actually buys his books—he’s just a one-man publisher doing good work.) But let us know what you’ve experienced and done for treatment, and we’ll start beefing up this first post.
From 2012, the Running Writings Injury Series has a detailed post as well:
RunnersConnect also has a good article on ITBS:
