Well, as you may have guessed by now, I've got a pretty severe case of ITBS in the left leg. I'm not one to take an injury sitting down, if I'm not making every effort to get well then I'm a loser...
In an effort to get over it I've done everything possible. I try to share new stuff I find, just in case it helps someone else out. (Because being injured is no fun.)
Here's my latest find for Iliotibial band syndrome-
After a few steps, you’ll begin to feel your ITBs zinging eccentrically, but that zinginess and resulting ITB fatigue will be far better for you than the six-week bout of ITBS which Frankenstein Marching can help prevent. Start with 2 X 15 meters of Frankenstein Marching as part of your warm-up or regular strengthening routine, carry it out a couple of times a week, and progress to 3 X 20 meters with a much-more-resistant stretch band. When you do, you’ll be keeping yourself out of future ITB peril. And while no scientific research has been conducted in this area, the increased control of adduction you’ll gain by strengthening your iliotibial bands should enhance your running economy, an important predictor of running fitness and performance."
I copied the instructions from this site.
I'm off to exercise.
