Gender differences in gait kinematics in runners with ITBS

Biomechanical analysis investigating gait variability between gender in patients with iliotibial band syndrome

Iliotibial band syndrome (ITBS) is a running injury synonymously associated with lateral knee pain. Despite ongoing research, a definitive consensus on the kinematic differences between those with and without ITBS has not been achieved. The current study sought out to investigate genetic differences between male and female runners with ITBS as well as differences between runners with ITBS and their non-afflicted counterparts.
