Iliotibial (IT) band syndrome, also known as IT band syndrome, is a common overuse injury that affects the iliotibial band, a thick band of fibrous tissue that runs along the outside of the thigh, from the hip to the shinbone.
IT band syndrome occurs when the IT band becomes tight and irritated, causing friction and inflammation as it rubs against the outer part of the knee or hip. The main symptom of IT band syndrome is a sharp or stinging pain on the outside of the knee or hip, which can worsen during activity and subside during rest.
This condition is often seen in runners, cyclists, and other athletes who engage in repetitive activities that involve bending the knee.
