Foam Roller – IT Band



Do you suffer from knee pain?  Do you sit too much at work?  Do your knees hurt after running?


One of the causes might be coming from your IT Band(s).


By utilizing the foam roller on your IT Band (the side of your leg), you may be able to reduce the amount knee pain that you have.  This can help you in order to get up and down on the floor to play with your kids/grandkids, run farther distances, and feel better overall.


Don’t worry if you cry using the foam roller on your IT Band(s).  Everybody does it!  ;)


Here’s how:


  1. Lie down on your side on the foam roller

  2. Place the roller above your knee

  3. Support your weight with your elbow

  4. Place your top leg behind you so that your foot is flat on the floor

  5. Slowly roll the foam roller up the outside of your leg

  6. Stop before reaching your hip

  7. Roll back down to the starting position

  8. Repeat 5-10 times per leg, putting as much weight on the leg that is on the foam roller as bearable
