IT Band Syndrome and Other Knee Pain
Are you experiencing pain, soreness, or stiffness on the outside of your leg, on or close to your knee? You might be suffering from Iliotibial Band Syndrome--commonly known as IT Band Syndrome. Between our M.D. and Midtown chiropractor team, Balanced Health Medical can help you heal and recover your active lifestyle.
Do You Have These Symptoms of Iliotibial Band Syndrome?
IT Band Syndrome occurs when the fibrous tissue on the outside of your knee, known as the iliotibial band, becomes inflamed or otherwise irritated. You may be suffering from this condition if you experience one or more of the following symptoms:
- Pain on the outside of the knee
- Pain just below or above the knee on the outside of the leg
- Swelling in the affected area
- Affected area is tender to the touch
- Pain when the knee is bent
- Stiffness, tightness, or loss of flexibility
- Pain when running or cycling
These symptoms are very common with athletes or others who engage in long-distance running or cycling. They may show up at any time, but are especially common for patients who have recently added time, distance, or difficulty to their exercise routine.
At first, the symptoms may only occur during or after exercise. As time goes on, symptoms can flare up during normal activities.
How a Chiropractor NYC Can Help
Chiropractic treatment treatment focuses on the human musculoskeletal system to heal injuries and reduce pain in a natural way. The treatment is non-invasive and non-addictive.
Our treatments are designed to reduce swelling and inflammation, increase or restore flexibility, and put you back in your active lifestyle. We also teach patients effective self-care methods to reduce their pain and keep their bodies resilient. When it comes to IT Band Syndrome, we may also recommend a cross-training strategy that will reduce strain on your knee while maintaining your overall endurance.
