Great response Debra! NASM Essentials of Corrective Exercise Training state the following:
“Iliotibaial Band Syndrome (ITBS) typically is caused by overuse. The injury is most commonly reported in runners as a result of abnormal gait or running biomechanics.
Weakness in the hip abductor muscles, such as the gluteus medius, may result in synergistic dominance of the TFL (increasing frontal plane instability).
It is impossible to suggest which stretches to suggest without performing a dynamic postural assessment.
Great question, Matt! Great answer, Debra!
