What can we do?

You may be referred to see a sports physiotherapist who will evaluate your running biomechanics and teach you IT band stretching and leg strengthening exercises. Your doctor may prescribe pain medications for temporary relief. Corticosteroids are anti-inflammatory medications that can be injected into the bursa to provide pain relief. Your physician may prescribe orthotics if it is found that abnormal foot biomechanics is contributing to your IT band syndrome.
