ITB Stretch

(Iliotibial Band)

If you haven't included an ITB Stretch in your exercise program, you may be headed for trouble.

The ITB is a thick band of connective tissue that runs along your outer thigh from your hip to your knee. Tight ITB's are notorious for pulling the knee joint out of alignment (pain) & causing inflamation in the hip area (more pain).

Stay healthy & pain free by stretching
every major muscle group several times per week.

IT Band Stretch

IT Band Standing Stretch

  • Start the IT Band Stretch in a standing position.
  • Cross your right foot over your left.
  • Bend at the waist and try to touch the floor.
  • Hold for 30 seconds. You should feel this stretch along your left hip and outer thigh. (For a deeper stretch, place more weight on the back leg.)
  • Ease out of the stretch, switch legs, & repeat on the opposite side.

Tips: Remember to keep your knees soft (unlocked) during this stretch.
