So might this one:[br][br] [url=http://runningtimes.com/Article.aspx?ArticleID=3528]http://runningtimes.com/Article.aspx?ArticleID=3528[br][br] [/url][p=padding-top: 10px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 4px; padding-left: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15px; color: #000000; margin: 0px;][font face="arial,helvetica,sans-serif" size="2" color="#000000"]"Traditional treatment of ITBS has focused mainly on stretching. While stretching plays an important role in the treatment of this injury, there are several other forms of therapy that need to be incorporated.[/font][/p] [p=padding-top: 10px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 4px; padding-left: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15px; color: #000000; margin: 0px;][font face="arial,helvetica,sans-serif" size="2" color="#000000"]Given current research, treatment for ITBS should be in phases. The first phase requires a proper diagnosis and the identification of any causative factors. Once this is established, the next phase is aimed at reducing the pain. Rest may have to play a part during this phase, which also may include physical therapy modalities, ice, and stretching three times a day. Cross training that does not aggravate the condition can be done to maintain fitness.[/font][/p] [p=padding-top: 10px; padding-right: 0px; padding-bottom: 4px; padding-left: 0px; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15px; color: #000000; margin: 0px;][font face="arial,helvetica,sans-serif" size="2" color="#000000"]Deep tissue massage along the full length of the ITB can be started in this phase; Dr. Fredericson refers to this as mobilization of the tissues, and it is a necessary step before moving on to the all-important third phase of strengthening the hip and thigh muscles. Fadil recommends very frequent massage: up to every day for elites, and 2 or 3 times per week for recreational runners. If you cannot afford the expense or time of going to a certified massage therapist, a foam roller can work very well for self massage."[/font][/p]

I have been diagnosed with IT BAnd Syndrome. I am an avid runner and have been for 10 Years. I am 20 and still love running. I am resting and taking anti-inflammatories. Beside ice and rest what are some exercises that I can do to strenghten the band.
