Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve-O Pro-Tec IT Band Compression Wrap
I've had sporadic issues with IT over the last 20 years. The first time I experienced it, I just gutted it out. I tried rubs, glucosemean, and a similar band. Nothing worked - and I couldn't see just "waiting" for the pain to go away knowing that I could re-injure then next time out. It wasn't pleasant. Fast forward 20 years, and I've overdone it again. In a fit of frustration, I went to Dick's Sporting Goods in Puyallup - and picked this thing up. I tried it on before running...just walking around the house and noticed an immediate change. It's important to get it positioned properly - for putting it on in the wrong area will do no good whatsoever. I've run with this band four times, and it's really helped. The right amount of pressure and the proper locations are key. My knee feels much better than it did. It could be a coincidence, but I think the band had a positive effect.

I've been plagued with IT syndrome for a few months. I bought this and have done lots of hip strengthening exercises. I'm only running short distances right now (2 miles a pop) but this band has assisted me in finally running pain free.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NewbieRunner Simple pain relief
Using this product in conjunction with exercises that isolate the muscles around the IT Band and using a foam roller to massage the IT Band I am now able to run with little pain. I definitely do not have pain that lingers for 2 days as in the past.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Runner dude Well made but didn't help
icommenting noticed almost no difference at all running with this product, but then again I've had very serious problem with IT band for five years and nothing works. It's cheap, so definitely worth a try if you have pain!!

I purchased this wrap online at the Dicks Sporting Goods store. I had bought a cheaper version at a running store which was of little help, but this neoprene band when placed in the right position helps to minimize IT Band pain. I would recommend it to anyone experiencing this problem.
