summus laser for it band friction


Iliotibial band friction syndrome or ITBS, is a common overuse injury of the iliotibial band. This long tendon attaches from the hip area and stretches all the way to the knee on the outside of the leg. Common symptoms could be a sharp pain on the lateral knee or a dull achy pain running along the whole outside of the leg to the knee. It can be caused by running on uneven surfaces, or starting an aggressive running or cycling program without building up mileage to tolerate longer distances. At Laser Center of Louisville we use our class IV Summus laser on patients  to help reduce inflammation, increase blood flow and reduce pain. Our laser has specific settings on our laser for Iliotibial pain and inflammation. Call Laser Center of Louisville today at 502-290-7876 for your complimentary visit!
