What’s that knee pain I get when I run?
It’s called Ilio-Tibial-Band Friction Syndrome (ITBFS) and it is quite common.
The knee is the most commonly injured body part in runners, making up 25% of all running injuries. That is quite a lot, considering around 50% of all runners can expect to sustain a running injury over a 12-month period.
What exactly is ITBFS, what are the causes and what can be done?
