Présentation de l'éditeur
Your Iliotibial band serves as an integral part of your ability to move. If you run, walk, hike, climb stairs, or stand on two feet, you need a healthy IT band to perform these movements. But as the wear and tear of motion accumulates, the all-important IT band can suffer. And Iliotibial Band Syndrome could be just around the corner.
If you should develop Iliotibial Band Syndrome, mobility can become painful at best, catastrophic at worst. Without intervention, the pain can grow steadily on the outside of the knee, and trying to push through the pain may only make it worse. If the condition is never addressed, the situation could progress. The agony could build to the point where pain-free performance during endurance sports, working on your feet, or even vigorous walking will be but a memory.
That’s the bad news. The good news: you can prevent Iliotibial Band Syndrome before it strikes, and you can make it disappear if you already have it. With a little knowledge and an easy but effective approach to address the injury, you can deflect the duress caused by Iliotibial Band Syndrome. And then continue on with the activities and sports that are important to you.
By using a strategic collection of stretching, strengthening, and nurturing actions, you can soothe the pain of Iliotibial Band Syndrome, and bolster your defenses against it. This book shows you how.
