Foam Rolling Exercises to Stretch and Alleviate IT Band Syndrome

Iliotibial band syndrome, better known as IT Band Syndrome, often plagues runners, cyclists and triathletes and is caused by connective tissue rubbing against the thigh bone. Whether you currently feel pain in your IT band or want to take preventative measures against it, these foam rolling exercises and stretches should help.

While not all of these exercises directly stretch the IT Band, they do work the muscles surrounding it, allowing them to work together like a well-oiled machine.
