When treating a cyclist with IT band friction syndrome, some of the common approaches would be looking at level of pelvic control, hip strength, and obviously flexibility around the hip and IT band.

Foot alignment and control, and just addressing any muscle imbalances in terms of strength and flexibility is important. You also can't forget to go to the bike and make sure that's set up correctly.

If you have questions about IT band syndrome, contact a local physiotherapist or sports medicine physician.
