Rethinking the Iliotibial Band

Finished reading ABMP’s Massage and Bodywork latest issue by reading Til Luchau’s Rethinking the Iliotibial Band. I am so glad I did! Reminded us massage therapists that the IT band is connective tissue (which, ultimately, means it, at the very least, will have a lot of fascia associated with it!) that connects the gluteus muscles to the femur. Just like we shouldn’t treat nerves like muscles, we should also not treat connective tissue like muscle!
