As runners, we know that any kind of sharp pain, whether in the ankles or knees, can halt the training for days. IT band syndrome, specifically, affects almost the entirety of the leg. Worse, it requires you to stop your training for at least fourteen days. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the days are all for bed rest.
Just like any other type of running injury, IT band syndrome (ITBS) recovery needs you to stay mobile and minimally active to accelerate healing. There are some simple rehabilitative routines that you can do for faster ITBS recovery.
