Ashburn chiropractor Dr. Keegan has been helping people of all ages optimize their health so they can participate in the activities they love. A common injury affecting runners and other athletes is a condition known as Iliotibial band syndrome or ITBS.
To say Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) is an "overuse" injury is only part of the picture; after all, many marathon runners can log dozens of miles per week and never develop it. The reason why some people get Iliotibial band syndrome depends on several factors including training, recovery, body mechanics, running surfaces, shoe type, and even postural alignment. It's more common in women who tend to have wider hips, which can "force" the knees to turn in.
This syndrome occurs when the long band of tissue called the Iliotibial band (running down the outer side of your thigh from your hip to your knee) becomes irritated and inflamed. This generally happens due to abnormal friction and rubbing between the band and a bone near your knee joint.
Signs and symptoms of Iliotibial band syndrome include pain, tenderness, warmth, redness, and/or swelling on the outside of the knee. The outer side of your thigh may also be tender and extremely firm to the touch. Any activity that requires weight-bearing or bending at the knee can be painful, and the joint may pop or click when you move around.
Our chiropractic services in Ashburn are drug-free, completely non-invasive, and complementary to your body's own innate healing ability. Dr. Keegan has used a variety of techniques to help people struggling with ITBS, including:
