Amanda Brooks con Ultimate IT Band Solution: How One Runner Solved the Pain for Good (English Edition)After running for 5 years, I suddenly developed a sharp shooting pain down my left leg. Limping and hobbling along for weeks, I finally caved, went to the doctor and first heard the words “Iliotibial Band Syndrome”.
The following two years were a frustrating experience of getting my running grove back, followed by agony and a simple prescription to rest, which doesn't solve the problem!
This is a detailed and effective guide that I wish someone had provided me! You can start implementing the exercises and tips on day 1. You'll find exercises from physical therapists, important workout warm up drills, holistic options and ways to reduce inflammation overall to recover faster.
First, you’ll understand the cause behind your pain and then you’ll learn how to fix it for good.No more smelling like creams, swallowing pills to mask pain during a run (please don’t do that) or worrying that your speed workout is going to send you back to the sidelines.
Don’t follow in my footsteps of ignoring the pain and trying to simply continue on. ITBS doesn’t work that way. Until you pay attention, it’s going to kick, scream, fight and eventually throw a full on temper tantrum.
But it’s not irreversible. Once I began using these techniques, I waved good by to ITBS and most other injuries for the next 10 years, while running over 1600 miles a year. Get back to enjoying your run and pursuing your big goals with a few simple changes.
