Great article, this is exactly why I have made strength training a priority! ITBS is the pits!

Thank you. My DIL is having ITBS issues and she does not ST. I forwarded this to her hoping she takes heed.

I stretch my ITB after every workout session, it is such an easy thing to incorporate into your stretches when it can prevent so much pain!!!

One smile can begin a friendship,
One hand can lift a soul,
One word can frame the goal,
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One laugh can conquer gloom,
One hope can raise our spirits,
And...one choice can change your life.
Yup, when I had my bouts of hip bursitis which is linked to the IT Band the sports doc said the best thing to rehabilitate was to do strength training. Since then I've taken ST much more seriously and haven't reaggravated it in over 2 years. I really does make a difference.

Love it love it love it.
Interestingly enough, my first experience with ITBS was during a century ride ... of which I was only able to complete a metric century. Six months later, during my first half, again I had issues. I have babied it ever since with lots of stretching.
Exercise looks like a good option.
