What is Iliotibial Band Inflammation?

Rolling for ITB mobilizationIliotibial band (IT Band) inflammation refers to a syndrome that occurs when the knee is overused or the hip muscles are overused. It is most frequently seen in athletes like bicyclist and runners but basketball players may also develop this condition.

Along with overuse, factors like bad training habits and inflexible or weak muscles can also contribute to the syndrome. Additionally, some people are genetically predisposed towards the syndrome, due to naturally occurring discrepancies in leg length or abnormal tilts to the pelvis or the form of their thigh bone. Some common symptoms of iliotibial band inflammation include:

  • Pain on the lateral side of the knee
  • Stinging sensation that eventually transforms into pain
  • Snap or pop sound at the knee
  • Swelling below the knee
