Stop IT Band issues before they stop you: Both Zamst and the TriggerPoint GRID (pictured below) are highlighted by Women’s Running to help get rid of nagging IT Band issues that plague so many runners. So what is IT Band Syndrome (or runner’s knee) anyways? Dawn Ferreria, Senior Product Specialist at Zamst explains, “it is actually focused on the outside portion of the knee over a bony protrusion called the lateral epicondyle. The IT Band is a fibrosis tissue on the outside of the leg that begins from the hip and attaches to the lower leg (Tibia).” Try the RK-1 and IW-1 from Zamst to combat this pesky injury alongside a routine of rolling out tight muscles and resting.
