  1. 1. Mark J Pitcher DC, MScchiropractor, exercise physiologist www.markjpitcher.com www.vailhealth.com Ilio-Tibial Band Syndrome Prevention and Rehabilitation
  2. 2. Ilio-tibial bandA tract of thickened fascia that arises • Anteriorly off the tensor fascia lata Tensor fascia lata
  3. 3. Ilio-tibial bandA tract of thickened fascia that arises • Anteriorly off the tensor fascia lata • In the middle off the iliac crest • Iliac crest Ilio-tibial tract
  4. 4. Ilio-tibial bandA tract of thickened fascia that arises • Anteriorly off the tensor fascia lata • In the middle off the iliac crest • Blends posteriorly with the glutes Iliac crest Ilio-tibial tract Gluteus Maximus
  5. 5. Ilio-tibial bandA tract of thickened fascia that inserts • distally at Gerdy’s tubercle
  6. 6. Ilio-tibial bandIt’s important to remember that the fasciaaround the thigh is continuous and is justthickened into the ilio-tibial band (IT band)at the lateral aspect of the thigh.
  7. 7. Ilio-tibial band Syndrome Pain is usually located at the distal aspect of the tract, just above the joint line of the knee
  8. 8. Ilio-tibial band Syndrome Muscle imbalance of weak glutes coupled with overactive tensor fascia lata and adductor musculature creates a fascial pull that draws the ilio-tibial band anteriorly. This creates increased friction over the lateral femoral condyle and ultimately inflammation and pain.
  9. 9. ITB Treatment:Success of treatment depends on severity and ability to modifycurrent activity. Address RICE: Mechani ing Rest, Ice , cal Defic ion, its C ompress Sacroilia c joint dy Elevation Pronation sfunction Talo-calc aneal dys Internal r function otation a t the tibia Myofascial soft tissue work ART Graston Foam Roller
