    Iliotibial (IT) Band TendonitisIliotibial band (IT) tendonitis, also called iliotibial band (IT) syndrome, is a condition characterized by inflammation that affects the iliotibial (IT) band of the upper leg. The IT band runs along the outer part of the thigh, from the hip to the knee. It consists of connective tissue called, fascia, that connects the buttock and hip muscles to the top of the shin bone. In fact, the IT band is the largest fascia in the body and helps to stabilize the knee while running. IT band tendonitis is most common in runners.
