    Chronic Iliotibial band tendonitis

    Has anyone had success in treatment of chronic IT band tendonitis? I have been dealing with this problem for about 3 years and have exhausted all of the normal treatments without success. Thanks for any insight.

    3 years history is a bit challenging, may mean more patience in treatment strategies.
    Have a PT do a thorough gait analysis. Any Physical Therapist can do one, but some will be more thorough. Side lying treatments of ice massage/ ultrasound/ soft tissue work such as skin rolling, cupping, graston or A-stim friction massage 2 times a week, then 1 time a week over a couple of months will give you an idea of what's going on. Learning self massage for the soft tissue, make sure attention is paid all around the trochanter. Don't just limit you vision to TFL and ITB....piriformis, glut medius, adductors, they all play a role.
