Drawing from the latest research, Treat Your Own Iliotibial Band Syndrome offers a simple and quick program that will help you recover from knee pain caused by the little understood iliotibial band.
The book is illustrated with over 40 drawings and photographs, which enables the reader to easily learn what causes this syndrome, and how to get rid of the inflammation it creates in the knee. Readers are also guided step-by-step through a targeted exercise program, which is designed to eliminate the syndrome and keep it from ever coming back. Perhaps best of all, the exercises can be done in the privacy of one's home with little cost or equipment - and they take just a few minutes each day to do.
