4 tips for running with ITB pain
ITB pain need not stop you from running. Here are 4 quick tips to help keep you pounding the pavement:
✅Slightly increase your step width when running
✅Pump up the incline! Running on a treadmill with a 3-5% incline can be used if running on a flat surface is too sore. It tends to be the DOWNHILL running that will aggravate ITB pain, so this negates the need to run downhill
✅Avoid downhill running & surfaces with a high camber. If running hills, run the uphill & walk downhill.
✅Sudden change in running volume can often trigger ITB pain, so increase training volume slowly. Speed may be introduced earlier on.
