Alleviates conditions of Iliotibial Band Syndrome.
How It Works:
This IT Band Wrap provides targeted compression, stabilizing the
iliotibial tract. In addition, it absorbs stress to the area and reduces
friction and rubbing of the femoral condyle.
Design Theory Behind the
Iliotibial Band Compression Wrap:
The Iliotibial Band Wrap includes a compression pad which provides
effective, targeted compression. It is 2 inches wide and is made from UBL
neoprene which is Velcro compatible and very comfortable on the skin. It is
adjustable and stays in place.
Medical Definition: Inflammation of the Iliotibial
Band. (The Iliotibial Band is a tough, fibrous tissue that runs from the hip
to the outside of the knee).
Causes: Excessive pronation, leg length discrepancy, bowed legs, and
lateral pelvic tilt may cause excessive lateral pull on the patella,
resulting in patellar subluxation as well as rubbing and irritation on the
outside part of the knee.
Symptoms: Pain on the lateral side of the knee or lower thigh.
