Rolling Out the Ilio-Tibial Band (IT-Band)

Place the roller on the ground or your yoga mat and put your lateral thigh onto the roller. Gently roll up and down onto your IT-Band controlling the amount of pressure onto it with your hands. Find the sweet spot and continue to roll over onto this area for up to 3-4 minutes total. Do this 2 to 3 times per day. This self release technique is great for IT-Band syndrome caused by knee sprains, tight lateral quads, lateral tracking of the knee cap or any other acute or chronic knee pain.
