Illiotibial Band Syndrome

What is it?

Iliotibial band syndrome is also known as runner's knee. The iliotibial band runs down the outside of the thigh. When it becomes tight the tendon starts to rub on the bone at the knee. Eventually it will become inflamed and cause pain when you run. Resting will decrease the pain, but when you run again the pain will return.

Symptoms

  • Swelling
  • Knee gives out
  • Pain when you walk and/or run.
