'..Hit my left knee on the outside edge, and I've had steadily worsening pain whilst running and walking ever since - and it really sounds like ITBS. Can somebody tell me - can ITBS be caused by a blow to the knee? Knee was fine before the face plant incident, and I've not upped my mileage much. And what are these foam rollers thingies of which you speak? ...'
Strange you should mention that, I've had a little ITB pain recently after similarly falling off the bike onto my left knee when avoiding a dog. Likewise I've not been upping my mileage (cycling in my case as been off running due to sciatica probs for a while, following prev tendonitis in shin) and never had any ITB problems before. Annoying as this year, seems to be one minor injury after another.
