Physical Therapy Treatment for ITB Syndrome

IT (Iliotibial) band syndrome is a non-traumatic overuse injury that can result in pain at either the outside of the hip or knee.  IT band syndrome is common in runners and endurance athletes.

  • Joint and soft tissue mobilizations to address hip mobility and flexibility impairments 
  • Strategies for improved running form
  • Dry needling to reduce pain
