The Iliotibial band (or iliotibial tract) is a thick band of fascia on the lateral aspect of the knee, extending from the pelvis to the tibia. It serves a stabilizing function for the mechanical parts of the knee. Iliotibial band syndrome can develop when excessive strain on the knee joint leads to the band rubbing against the lateral femoral epicondyle and causing inflammation. The main symptom is pain when running. Treatment options for iliotibial band syndrome include rest, icing, elevation of the limb, as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and exercise.
