Client of the week.....
This week is a 30 year old who suddenly ramped up training from 10K to half marathon and subsequently got sever pain on the outside of her legs starting jut abve the knees and now all the way up.
It has been diagnosed as IT band syndrome and she has received (very painful) treatment to the IT band.
I found that her Sacrum was locked on both sides making her run as if she had snow shoes on (swinging her feet out and then forward). I released her sacrum and then worked both Glute Med and Tensor Facia Lata to release the IT band tension. These were a few leisons between the IT bands and the Vastus lat which I released and general tightness in the Glut. max and erector spine/Psoas which I eased.
I look forward to reporting back on the improvements this client sees.
