Can anyone help me how to do this stretch for IT band syndrome ??
Dr. Pribut (http://www.clark.net/pub/pribut/spsport.html) says:
"The side stretching is well illustrated in Runners World, February, 19
95. It is performed while standing as follows: Place the injured leg
behind the good one. If the left side is the sore side, cross your
left leg behind your right one. Then lean away from the injured side
towards your right side. There should be a table or chair that you
can hold onto for balance on that side."
Does that mean I put the toes of my left (injured) leg behind and
touching the heel of my right (good) leg, both pointing forward ?
When I stretch do I put my weight on the left-hand side of my left
foot and lean to the right? This gives a stretching feel on the
outside of my left knee, which is I assume the way I want to stretch
Thanks for any help !!
PS. Running Training also has a complex (medical) page on IT band
syndrome. It's at: http://s2.com/html/etj/running.html
