I have just realized that Google searches for “rehabbing itbs” are returning this site highly ranked. So I should point out that as far as rehab goes I am not a physical therapist, haven’t even bothered to see my doctor regarding this, and in general have no idea what I’m doing. In general I expect to continue running, and thus expect some day to be “over” (at least temporarily) my little bout with knee pain, but that is not at all to say that the particular things I am doing or not doing should be considered advice for anyone facing a similar problem.
However, feel free to read and commiserate. Not being able to run (hard, or far, or daily) sucks!
