Treatment for ITB Friction Syndrome

itb-friction-syndrome

Pathology

ITB Friction Syndrome occurs when there is excessive friction between the ITB and the underlying outer surface of the thigh bone. This may occur when there is a lack of flexibility of the outer quadriceps muscle and poor muscular control around the lumbar spine, hip and knee.

Symptoms may include: a feeling of pain or burning along the lateral aspect of the knee, sometimes radiating up along the ITB or down towards the tibia. Activities which may be aggravating include: long distance running, going up and down stairs.

Classification/Assessment

Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapists are highly trained in biomechanical analysis and are thus able to help identify the contributing factors and cause of injury. They are able to treat the impairments and provide appropriate advice and implement a thorough rehabilitation program to also to assist in preventing re-injury.

Treatment

In the acute stages of injury, management is to RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) for the following 48-72 hours to reduce damage. At ProPhysio SA, we not only look to treating the symptoms, but we also look to finding the cause and addressing all the factors which may have been contributing to your problem. This may include but is not limited to: massage, electrotherapy, dry needling/acupuncture and stretching. All home exercises prescribed are specific to you and are prescribed to assist in stretching of any tight muscles and to help strengthen any weak muscles. The treatment and rehabilitation program put in place are all aimed at getting you back to your sport as soon as possible.
