Many runners suffer from IT Band Syndrome. The IT Band or Iliotibial Band runs down the side of your leg from the hip to the knee. Due to muscle tightness and weakness, the IT Band tightens leading to pain in the hips, pain in the knee, and spasms in the IT Band. This injury lowers one’s quality of life and causes a minor disability.

Lower back weakness is a major cause for lower back pain. During our day, most of us spend a lot of time in incorrect posture that causes muscle weakness and tissue damage. Eventually, incorrect posture in combination with stresses on the lower back cause injury and pain.
