What is the iliotibial band ?
The iliotibial band starts in the hip as the tensor fascia latae muscle and has attachments at the origin from three different muscles: the gluteus medius, gluteus minimus, and vastus lateralis. As the muscles progress down the thigh they become a fibrous band of tissue, cross the knee joint, and inserts along the lateral (outside) portion of the patella (knee cap) and into the tibia (shin) bone on a bump known as Gerdy's Tubercle.
What is Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS)?
Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS) is caused by an overuse injury of these tissues associated with the lower thigh and knee. One of the classic symptoms of ITBS is pain along the outside (lateral) aspect of the knee joint and lower thigh. This can occasionally be felt along with a “clicking” sensation in the same area. The clicking sensation can be the result of the ITB tightening and “clicking” across the joint during running. These symptoms are often worse when running up / down hills and during heel strikes.
