 What is Iliotibial band syndrome?

Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) is a common cause of knee pain, particularly among runners. The iliotibial band (ITB) is a thick band of fibrous tissue that runs down the outside of the leg from the hip to the shin. It helps to stabilise the knee and assist in bending the joint.

If the Iliotibial band becomes tight or inflamed, the tendon rubs on the outside of the knee. Therefore increasing friction resulting in pain and inflammation.

How does the Ultimate Performance ITB strap work?

You apply the strap around your leg, just above the knee. The ITB strap applies compression around the Iliotibial band, changing how the forces transmit through the tendon. As a result it relieves symptoms and aids the healing process. Use in conjunction with rehabilitation exercises.
