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.
