The total number of inflexible iliotibial bands
(right and left) decreased from Screening I to Screening III (p = 0.003) and from Screening II to Screening III (p = 0.04).

 Herrington L, Rivett N, Munroa S.The relationship between patella position and length of the iliotibial band
as assessed using Ober's test.
In a sample of 20 high arched runners, Williams et al observed more bony injuries and lateral injuries in the lower extremities (ie, 5th metatarsal stress fractures, lateral ankle sprains, and iliotibial band
This edition has been updated, expanded, and revised with new sections on the elbow joint and iliotibial band
syndrome and a new chapter on sports physiotherapy by an additional author, in addition to updates to the concept of greater trochanter pain syndrome.
Common overuse injuries in runners are patellofemoral pain syndrome and iliotibial band
syndrome at the knee and plantar fasciitis at the foot.
Friction Syndrome (Iliotibial Band
The condition - iliotibial band
friction syndrome - is an inflammation of the muscle that runs along the thigh between the pelvis and the shin bone.
Topics include: positioning and set-up, portals, iliopsoas tendon release, abductor repairs, iliotibial band
release, microfracture, revision hip arthroscopy, arthroscopic management of pincer impingement, and arthroscopic acetabular labral reconstruction using an iliotibial band
injuries cause sharp pain to the outside of the knee or sometimes the lower thigh.
Tendinitis in runners commonly occurs in the heel (Achilles tendon), above and below the kneecap (patellar tendon), on the side of the knee and on the side of the hip (iliotibial band
(27) The most important of these structures, from anterior to posterior, are the iliotibial band
(ITB), a continuation of the tensor fascia lata inserting on Gerdy's tubercle on the anterolateral tibia (Figure 16), the fibular or true lateral collateral ligament (Figure 17), and the tendon of the biceps femoris muscle that converges with the fibular collateral ligament to form the conjoined tendon prior to inserting on the fibular head (Figures 18 and 19).
