Cho-Pat's new I.T.B. Strap will apply compression at the area of discomfort to help relieve Iliotibial Band Syndrome. The strap uses compression to help prevent the snapping or friction of the iliotibial band over the bony prominence just above and outside of the knee joint or further up the leg at the hip joint allowing the healing process to begin.
The I.T.B. Strap is recognized as an effective addition to the treatment procedures for Iliotibial Band Syndrome. As such, while it may alleviate the symptoms of Iliotibial Band Syndrome, the cause of the affliction may still be present. It is suggested the user seek evaluation and treatment by a medical professional in conjunction with the band’s use.
Ideally, the user should wear the strap nearest the area of most discomfort. However, the user can wear it approximately 2” – 3” in either direction with beneficial results.
Warning: Wear tight enough to attain relief but not impede circulation and normal leg movement. Do not wear to bed.
Sizing: Measure Circumference at site of most discomfort
Note: If you are between sizes, we suggest you order the smaller size.
