Runner's knee or iliotibial friction syndrome

The iliotibial band is a band that extends from the pelvis over the hip and knee and inserts just below the knee. This band often causes lateral knee pain, especially in runners. The pain often increases after prolonged exertion. The twinges of pain are felt mainly when the foot touches the ground. Treatment with CureTape permits a quicker recovery from this injury. The first tape is applied over the tibialis muscle. Subsequently two ligament tapes are used to form a cross over the painful point on the side of the knee.
