R Knee, Iliotibial Band Syndrome

2018-01-07 – 2018-04-23

Grade: 3

- Probably caused from compensating on the right thanks to my squidgy shin.
- Plenty of stretching and glute strengthening.
Trying to be positive by taking it as an opportunity to get more strength and flexibility... but this is not very convincing.

Probably caused by injuring L shin and working too much on the bike meaning overcompensating plus extra tightness blew R ITB.
I tried pretty much everything for recovery. In the end a lot of glute strengthening and some massage helped. When everything was back to full strength a couple of weeks of daily ITB stretching seemed to work.
On the other hand, it could just be the passage of time.
