Iliotibial Band Strap-Wrap-Support Store?

Hi HKRunners,

We all know that the best solution for the ITBS is RICE - rest, ice, compression and elevation. Before my injury gets worse, I would like to ask if any runner has seen these around HK stores:
1. Mueller Textured ITB Strap - Escapade have this brand but not sure if they have this product.
2. Ultimate Performance ITB Strap
3. NEO G™ ITB Strap

Appreciate all your help and keep running. Cheers!

I would add that Protec also has a wrap to address ITB issues.

Re: Iliotibial Band Strap-Wrap-Support Store?

Tried lots of bands for my ITB, but rarely worked. Pain always hit at around 18-20K. Salvation came after I finally checked in to see physical therapist and tried a few weeks of specific exercises aimed at strengthening hamstring and glut muscles. Ran marathon pain free and never looked back (... so far ... and knock wood!)

Re: Iliotibial Band Strap-Wrap-Support Store?

I use "LP support" ITB strap that I bought from Gigasport. It's cheap and can be found at most sporting goods stores.

Still the best cure I found (just like glim said) is to do those lower body strengthening exercise.

Re: Iliotibial Band Strap-Wrap-Support Store?

To Peter Lau, tonylo, glim, and zimbermen - I wish and hope you a happy and injury-free running for taking the time to reply/ comment.

I am testing the Pro-Tec IT Band Wrap together with core and lower body strengthening exercises.

Cheers!
