Yes, you can see the impact of poor sitting position downstream at the knee.
Everything starts with the spine.
If the spine is in a poor position things are compromised at the big engines of the hip and shoulder.
Your knee/leg issue could originate at the hip.
There can be different causes of ITB. Sounds like you reached your body’s tolerance for the compromised position. Have you done anything to address your knee?
Here are some to start with
