IT band inflammation was from general poor mobility and an imbalance in hip strength. I’ve managed to work through that problem. Unfortunately the physical demands of my job never let me completely rest the inflammation. The IT band has calmed down now after fixing the hip strength issue. My mobility is better, but in the last few weeks I’ve started to focus a lot more on trying to buy some slack up stream and down stream from my problem areas.
I’ll have someone video my running and get a look at it, thanks for the tip. I was previously doing running drill work, mostly during my warm ups by focusing on mechanics. But I don’t have a coach around all the time, so I might have ingrained piss poor habits and not known it.
Still waiting on the ortho surgeon, hopefully I get to see him/her soon. Not being able to do anything is driving me absolutely bat shit crazy.
Thanks for the videos I don’t think I’ve seen those yet.
