ITB Friction Syndrome
Iliotibial band friction syndrome is also known as ITBFS or ITB friction syndrome. This condition is a common result of overuse by distance runners, cyclists, soccer players, and marathon participants. In ITB friction syndrome, the iliotibial band that connects to the knee and hip bones gets rubbed to the point of irritation. In extreme cases, the band can begin to rub against bone, causing severe pain.
The symptoms of ITB friction syndrome include pain on the kneecap or exterior of the knee, pain while running forward (lessening when taking sharp changes in direction), increasing pain over the length of your run, and pain while even walking. This is one of the few knee conditions that actually occur outside the knee joint, making it harder to diagnose correctly. However, if you are suffering from ITB friction syndrome, the PattStrap may help you get relief from your pain.
To wear the PattStrap, all you have to do is strap the adjustable band firmly around your leg, about two to three inches above the knee. This non-latex composite strap will not move while you run and will pull sweat away from your skin for a comfortable feel while you work out.
