Insoles for Iliotibial Band Syndrome

Iliotibial Band Syndrome is one of the most common causes of lateral (outer) knee pain in runners.


Although it can be referred to as Runner's Knee, it also affects other athletes, including cyclists. Poor biomechanics and over-pronation are the most common causes.

About Iliotibial Band Syndrome


The ITB extends from the muscles of your hip, along the lateral side of your thigh and knee and attaches to the tibia. Its function is to stabilise the knee, but it can become inflamed when it is pulled in directions that it does not want to go.


Symptoms are a stinging sensation just above and on the outer side of the knee where the ITB moves over the femur - also possibly below the knee where the ITB attaches to the tibia. Pain can intensify during activity and is most commonly felt when the foot strikes the ground.

We know how to cure it

Over-pronation is a common contributor to ITBS and well-fitting, accurately profiled insoles can reduce the abnormal forces being placed on the knee.

How about painkillers?

Painkillers in isolation are a bad idea because, if you continue to exercise, they mask the ongoing underlying problem. The correct insoles will address the cause by allowing the lower limb to manage ground force reaction naturally.

In case you're thinking “why me?”


It isn’t just you. Our feet are not designed for hard surfaces and most footwear lacks adequate support.

I'd almost given up on finding effective insoles for my knee pain, but I understand now that they were all too soft to make any sort of correction.  Thank you for the explanation and such a simple, permanent fix!
