Shin splints plague many runners and it has been estimated that this condition accounts for almost 17% of all running related injuries.

If you have come to my website searching for IT band syndrome, chances are that you are currently struggling with IT band (i.e. ilitibial band) and feeling discomfort on the outside of your leg and outer portion of your knee.
