>Health and Nutrition>Knee / IT band pain -- does it get better ?
day after day sameness
I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...
Massage and a new pair of shoes worked for me. Good luck, dude.
I've been using the pain setting in as a sign to cut back to distance, but have pushed through to finish the run.
Use your momentum...keep going. You know you can make it.
I run with this IT Band strap ... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000OQLUZ4 and it works great! Also, get yourself a foam roller. They work, too!
This, plus foam roller.
Oh yeah, and I couldn't run for 8 weeks (I couldn't even walk), not until I got new shoes that is (not just new, different). Once I switched to a neutral shoe I never had a problem again.

What shoe do you wear when you run? And what shoe do you wear other time during the day?
