Iliotibial Band Syndrome

20120919-093359.jpg

The Iliotibial band (ITB) is a fibrous band of tissue that plays a vital role in providing lateral stability to the knee and assisting in abduction to the hips.

Without adequate support, dropped medial arches in the feet can strain the knees and hips for many athletes, leading to a common injury known as Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS).

Those suffering from ITBS will experience a feeling of tightness and pain in the lateral aspect of the knee. Quite often, the severity of pain from ITBS will cause many athletes to cut back from their exercise routines.

To help prevent further stress and pain during activity, it is best to equip patients with products that can help control excess motion and stabilize their lower extremities.

Wearing Footmaxx functional orthotics to correct overpronation stabilizes the lower extremities during gait, and provides resistance to lateral movement of the knee and abduction of the hips.

Footmaxx orthotics, paired with supportive footwear can help prevent injuries such as ITBS that can otherwise bring any training regimen to a screeching halt. Call Richmond Chiropractic for a free gait analysis. 604-270-1007
