ITB Syndrome

Iliotibial Band Syndrome is pain at the outer part of the knee, thigh or hip. It is usually caused by overuse and it is often seen in runners. Other causes may be from excessive pronation of the foot, tight buttock muscles, poor running form, bowed legs or a leg length discrepancy. If you have pain at the outer part of your leg and it continues with daily activities and running, you need to consult a physical therapist.
