IT band injury and steroid injection

Posted: 14/03/2014 at 10:09

I do foam roll to try and loosen. And I have been to the physio a few times where he has massaged me, christ that was painful! haha. Ive not done any sort of running or cardio in weeks now, can still feel that niggle in the knee though. Incredibly frustrating.

Cheers for all the advice.

Maxs mum - pain is right on the outside of my knee. I do about 25-30 mins of strengthening exercises every day now(one leg squats, one leg deadlifts, lying glute raises, lateral leg raises, clam with a theraband, side steps with a theraband) and stretches (glutes, quads, hamstrings, calfs, hips).

I have been suffering from itbs for almost four months now. Been seeing a physio, stretching, foam rolling and doing leg strengthening exercises every morning....but it just wont go away. Anyone else had this injury for this long? What did you do to finally get rid of it? I've read you can get a steroid injection in the side of the knee, anyone had this done?



ITBS - is that me for London?

Cheers carterusm, all good advice. As i said i have done two 7km runs, but the temptation is there to build this too quickly, especially as i am now in to my 16 week countdown to the edinburgh marathon. Stretching and a lot of foam rolling is what seems to have helped, so i guess slowly increasing the miles and continuing this is the way forward.

Well finally back running. Managed two 7k runs with no pain during or after so, touch wood, things are looking good.


Shedboy when you were running again how gradual did you build it up? My worry is that i'll do too much too soon and the problem will come back...

I was looking at the adios 2 or the adios boost, anyone currently wearing any of these? Is there much difference between them and the tempos?

12 week Marathon Training

Never actually raced a half marathon so the 1:40 was a fairly conservative estimate really based on the times on training runs. Could probably knock a few mins off that in an actual race. 

12 week Marathon Training

Been out since the start of december with ITB issues, which is taking a long time to clear up. I have signed up for the edinburgh marathon in the end of may, but the way things are going im looking at only having 12, maybe 14 weeks maximum of decent training. Before my injury i was doing 30-35 miles a week, can do a 10k in 41 mins and the half in around 1:40, so had a decent base before i was injured. Is training for a marathon in 12 weeks going to be possible? And realistically what would be a sort of target time to go for? Any training schedules that you would suggest?

Thanks in advance, from a worried runner.

The 3:30 and 4 hour ones would be greatly appreciated if anyone has them.

Glad to hear it Shedboy. Had a pretty successful visit to the physio last night so hopefully be back running as well shortly. Like you said as well, what a difference it makes going to a physio who runs, really knew what he was talking about. My quad muscles, amongst others, are shockingly tight so he really deep massaged them and gave me stretches to do to loosen off. This seems to have been the cause, so fingers crossed i'll be back running soon.
