    nagging it band

    I have had a nagging side leg issue for a year now. Its been dealable but lately its irritating the shit out of me on squat day. It doesn't hinder my lifts but I feel it afterwards.

    I have rolled, self massage, stretched, rested, iced, heated ext.

    I quit rolling pre workout and I feel stronger but a lot stiffer.

    I think I'm making it worse. Any one have any ideas? I'm running out of my own.

    Are you foam rolling consistently? I had some IT woes in the past and I rolled it a few times a day. It took some time, but eventually healed/corrected itself with consistency.

    Also, this yoga posture helps me:

    Good luck. In my experience there is a fine line between too much rolling and not enough. The right amount of rolling plus stretching (in the ilk of that pose above) might take some honing-in, as it were. Here is some more:

    Sounds like a definite IT band issue.

    In my personal experience if I work and work at the site of the pain and it just stays around it usually means that I'm attacking the wrong area. Sometimes with IT band issues it can be simply the result of another area being too tight or injured.
