Hey!

Try working upstream and downstream of the issue. Not rolling out the IT band itself as this is a compression issue and putting compression over it could irritate the area but instead rolling out the TFL, glutes, lateral quads/hamstrings and peroneals.

Here is a great mob for you to try out for the TFL and glutes:

Friday, November 18th, 2016 – Glutes & TFL

Lateral HS and glutes:

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017 – Lateral Hamstrings & Peroneals

Here is a video summarizing issues around the IT band. Definitely worth a listen!
