  • BACKGROUND Iliotibial band syndrome is the leading cause of lateral knee pain in runners. It is thought that pain develops from strain on the iliotibial band due to friction of the iliotibial band sliding over the lateral femoral epicondyle. The purpose of this study was to investigate mechanical strain in the iliotibial band as a possible causative factor in the development of iliotibial band syndrome. METHODS From a large prospective study, female runners who incurred iliotibial band… CONTINUE READING
