This exercise has changed my life. I first saw the video by coach Nicole and asked around if anyone had success with it. One person wrote back and said just do it. Well the difference in my pain has been night and day. As a matter of fact I have printed off instru tions for this and gave it to 3 different people now. AMAZING. Thanks for putting it up here .
My physical therapist instructed me to perform these exercises to help with lower back pain. They has been very helpful with my therapy. I roll my IT bands every night and my back (which feels awesome!). Make sure to start with a white foam roll as different colors provide harder resistance. The black roller is VERY hard and would be very painful for a beginner. Complete these exercises for as long as you can each day and you will notice less pain over time, promise!
I must now buy a foam roller! I'm an avid cyclist, and the past two seasons I've ended up with really bad runner's knee. Perhaps if I start this season stretching regularly and add this routine, I can end this season pain-free!
As a massage therapist, we do give exactly that take home exercice to client that have an IT Band problem. It is really hard to find picture and even more video that can help us compliment our exercices! And all I have to say is great job, coach Nicole! (And it is going to be on my professionnal page too for my exercices portions, thanks!)
