After suffering with pain in my leg for years and knowing it was my IT band, I decided to get it checked out. I was diagnosed with iliotibial band syndrom a few months ago by my physical therapist. My question to any one knowledgeable on the subject is does it ever get better? When i first started haveing these pains, i researched it and found stretches and purchased a foam roller, which i have been useing for about 6 yrs. My therapist told me that I seem to know quite a bit about my problem and after a few sessions she told me to keep doing what i have been doing as far as stretches and the roller. It doesnt necessarily hurt while lifting but a couple hours later and im in some real pain!! Im into powerlifting and this seems to hold me back. Any input would be greatly appreciated!!
