Yes I have been doing the excercises religiously and I have been foam rollering too! I will persist. I got the injury on the 2nd november, it was a 16 mile race and the pain started around the 13 mile mark. The pain was really bad walking down hill and down stairs, then after a few weeks it seemed a good bit better. It comes back after about 25 mins running and I am back to having pain again. Has anyone used voltarol or the like for IT pain?
Hi thanks for replying, yes I have been going to a phsyio and getting ultra sound, tape, some pilates excercises and a slendertone machine thing. The physio has told me to rest and do the excercises to build up the hip and glutes. I have been reading about the Paul Ingraham tutorials online but I am reluctant to pay to get the full tutorial as I have thrown so much money already at this and it feels a bit desperate. What I can gain from some articles of his is that its not actually the it band but some tissue underneath it, there is no explanation of what to d,o but I suppose thats why you need to pay the 19 dollars!
Hi this is my first post, have had a dad case of itbs for two months, tried everthing and last resort is a online tutorial from Paul Ingraham, has anyone read it as I have spent a load of money so far and dont want to pay 19 dollars unless it is worthwhile! Supposesd to be starting my london marathon training and I am starting to realy panic.
