Dr. Larry Benson is treating IT Band Syndrome at CJW Sports Medicine.
IT Band Syndrome or Iliotibial Band Syndrome is inflammation or pain on the lateral side of the knee. It is caused by repetitive knee bending that causes the IT Band to become irritated and inflamed.
Anti-inflammatory medications may help.
See a physician if your pain does not resolve over a 7-10 day period.
