Our work with elite athletes serves as the proving grounds for our methods. Most people don’t play professional sports. But if our methods help athletes at the highest levels, they can work for anyone.
Would appreciate a bit of direction with regards to a recent recurring injury. I’m doing a lot of hiking and rucking at the moment, and when i begin descending downhill (ether loaded or unloaded) i develop symptoms similar to IT band syndrome; with pain on the outside of the knee around where the hamstring and calf connect behind the knee cap. I’m unsure if this would be ITBS or another issue, maybe tight calves? Just to reiterate, the pain only occurs when going downhill, flat or uphill theres no issues whatsoever.
The pain doesn’t occur when doing squats, lunges, box jumps or any other S+C exercises, just very specific to walking downhill.
I’ve tried everything from lower leg mobilisations to TFL mobs and everything inbetween but the problem keeps popping up.
