Ileo-tibial syndrome

This refers to a chronic inflammation that affects the ilio-tibial section of the fascia lata originating from persistent mechanical friction. Knee pain is experienced laterally, during both flexion and extension movements.

This condition is especially common in footballers, runners and ccyclists and often occurs due to overloading, and training on hard or uneven turf. Anatomical factors can also play a role here, with varus knee and hypo-extensibility of the posterior muscle chain worsening symptoms.

Ultrasound scans are useful in diagnosing this injury, and MRI scans are also useful in differentiating between this condition, and external meniscal conditions.

Treatment for this condition always avoids surgery, except in very resistant cases. A mix of manual and physical therapies will be used to aid rehabilitation.
