- ITB (Iliotibial Band) is a thick tendon that runs on the entire lateral side of your leg
- When there’s too much tension on that tendon, it will rub on the femur, causing irritation (aka. ITB Syndrome)
- Typically, people do it wrong because ITB is a tendon. Tendons cannot be stretch.
- Loosen up the muscles that act on the ITB tendon. (1min each muscle, PAUSE on areas of tension)
- TSL (Tensor Fasciae Latae) – tight hip flexors
- Glutes (Gluteus Maximus) – connects to the outside of ITB
- Quads (Quadriceps) – See Quad Foam Roll
- Hamstrings (Biceps Femoris)
- Initial few treatments may feel extremely painful. Stay the course and gradually apply more pressure once you get a hang of it!
