    I have been battling ITBS for at least 6 months, finally went to a sport medicine doctor who agreed I had ITBS. I stretch every day, using a foam roller and The Stick - both torturous! I also have a deep tissue massage once/week, go to Stretch U (Nichols Hills Plaza) twice/week, and see my chiropractor every two weeks for back issues. I think my problem started when I ran too many days in a row. Now I only run 2-3 times/week, and try to cross train on the elliptical and weight train. In addition to the ITBS, the patella on left leg is not tracking, so now I wear a patella brace which helps tremendously.

    Hope this helps, let me know!
