I have been stuggling with IT Band syndromefor a couple of months now and I cant go over 5 miles at a comfortable pace without the pain. I did 10 a few days ago and really aggrivated the problem and its taking me days to eleviate the pain. I've tried a strap, appropriately named the "IT Band" that I wear just above the knee but its made of flexible material and it doesn't seem to be tight enough. It certainly doesnt work at least noticably. I'm training for a half marathon and this problem is really slowing me down. Does anyone have any thoughts on what I can do? Does anyone have any experience with such remedies or could suggest others? Thanks in advance!
