Stop Foam Rolling Your IT Band
Have you ever used a foam roller on your ITB?
It hurts AND I find it a bit odd that when we're injured or sore, we think that squishing it with a giant rolling pin might help!
So, during this painful pummeling, a thought has often crossed my mind... is this actually doing anything? Will it improve stiffness or flexibility?
I've wondered the same thing about stretching the ITB. It seems other, more clever people have had similar thoughts and done some research to find out. We talk about this and more in our video below.
