Pain on the outside of the knee when bent is a tell-tale sign of ITB (Iliotibial Band) syndrome. The IT band runs down the outside of your thigh from hip to knee. When it becomes inflamed or injured, this can prevent proper movement of the knee joint.
This pain can quickly become debilitating. It can become severe and prevent you from running or lifting in a way that bends the knee.
We can help with the pain by helping relax those muscles in the front of your leg along with the surrounding musculature to relax and heal properly. Along with the muscle work, site specific rehab will help prevent the problem from coming back. Deep tissue therapy can also help your body to more rapidly process the scar tissue that is preventing proper movement of the ligament.
This type of issue can often be fixed in just a few visits. Dr. Gomach has helped many marathon runners who had to find an answer to stay in the race. Treatment will be tailored to your needs as you get the chance to spend time with the Doctor one on one every visit.
