Understanding ITBS

Iliotibial Band Syndrome, commonly known as ITBS, is a prevalent condition causing pain and discomfort on the outer side of the knee. Characterized by inflammation of the iliotibial band, a thick band of connective tissue running down the side of the leg, ITBS can severely impact your ability to engage in physical activities or sports.

At The Foot Practice, we understand the debilitating effects of ITBS. Our team of highly skilled podiatrists possesses extensive knowledge and expertise in diagnosing and treating this condition. We aim to address the root cause of ITBS, providing you with long-term relief and restoring your mobility.

Advanced Treatment Solutions

With a deep commitment to staying at the forefront of podiatric advancements, The Foot Practice offers a range of advanced treatment solutions for ITBS. Our podiatrists employ a multidimensional approach to alleviate pain and facilitate optimal healing, customized to meet your unique needs and goals.

1. Gait Analysis and Biomechanical Assessment

Understanding the role of biomechanics in ITBS is crucial for effective treatment. Our specialists utilize cutting-edge gait analysis technology to assess your walking or running pattern, identifying any biomechanical abnormalities that may contribute to the development of ITBS. By addressing these underlying issues, we can create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your biomechanical needs.

2. Manual Therapy and Technique Refinement

Our skilled podiatrists are trained in manual therapy techniques that aim to release tension and tightness in the iliotibial band. These hands-on treatments, combined with specific stretching and strengthening exercises, help restore flexibility and balance to the affected area, facilitating the healing process.

3. Footwear and Orthotic Assessment

The proper footwear and orthotic support can play a pivotal role in managing ITBS and preventing its recurrence. At The Foot Practice, our podiatrists conduct comprehensive footwear and orthotic assessments, ensuring a perfect fit and optimal support to help alleviate stress on the iliotibial band. We offer customized orthotic solutions that are specifically designed to address your unique foot structure and biomechanical needs.

4. Rehabilitation and Strengthening Programs

Restoring strength and mobility is crucial in the management of ITBS. Our team of dedicated podiatrists will guide you through targeted rehabilitation programs, combining specific exercises and techniques to strengthen the surrounding muscles and prevent further injury. With proper guidance and supervision, you can regain your previous level of activity and achieve long-term recovery.
