Illiotibial band syndrome: diagnosis and treatment

In the first part of this two-part article, Alicia Filley reviewed the recent research on the underlying biomechanics of illiotibial band syndrome. In part 2, she looks at diagnosis and treatment options. In some athletes, repeated knee flexion causes the illiotibial band (ITB) to produce friction over the lateral femoral condyle (LFE), or compression of the... MORE

Illiotibial band syndrome: compression or friction?

In the first part of this two-part article, Alicia Filley looks at new research on the underlying biomechanics of illiotibial band syndrome. Up to 15% of all runners complain of point-specific tenderness at the lateral knee(1). The source of this pain is most often illiotibial band syndrome (ITBS), which also accounts for nearly 25% of...

New thinking in management of ACL injury – Part...

In the first of this two-part series, Alicia Filley unravelled the mystery of the role of the ACL and anterolateral complex in knee stability. In this article, she evaluates the current thinking on conservative management, repair, and the required rehabilitation to successfully return athletes to sport The recent hubbub regarding the presence of the anterolateral ligament (ALL),...

The controversial anterolateral knee complex – Part 1

In the first of a two-part series, Alicia Filley unravels the mystery of the role of the ACL and anterolateral complex in knee stability. In the follow up article, she will build on these findings and evaluate the current thinking on conservative management, repair, and the required rehabilitation to successfully return athletes to sport.   The most...

Gait deviations and running injuries: chicken or the egg?

Injuries plague roughly half of all runners(1). The most common of these injuries include patellofemoral pain (PFP), iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS), medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), and Achilles tendinopathy (AT). Certain musculoskeletal deficits are associated with these running injuries. However, researchers at the University of Salford wondered if there were universal running gait deviations that... MORE
