Had same problem last year and at one point thought that I'd have to give up running completely. Then read on here about using a foam roller so bought one from Argos (cheap enough) and have never looked back. Physio just aggrevated it, orthotics helped for a while but using the roller on a regular basis seems to have sorted it for me. Gotta be worth a try
I was soooo relieved when I read this thread....I've nearly doubled my monthly mileage over the last 6 months and put on half a stone even though I watch very carefully what I eat. But I'm deffo getting quicker and my clothes still feel good so I've just taken the batteries out of the scales....sod em
Agree with Max's Mum - had terrible ITB issues last year and thought I'd have to give up running....followed advice and bought a foam roller and now use it after every run and bingo...sorted! Yes I do still get niggles , but I then intensify the rolling and it sorts it . Best thing I ever bought!
