HOW TO TEST FOR ITB TIGHTNESS

Runner's World (UK) - - Body + Mind -

Do the Ober’s test, which re­quires a part­ner. Lie on your side on the floor, with your part­ner kneeling be­hind you. Bend your bot­tom knee for sta­bil­ity. Your part­ner should place a hand on your pelvis to fix it firmly. The top test­ing leg is then held around the bent knee, lifted back and dropped down. The knee must be at least be­hind the line of the shoul­der and hip. Your knee should be able to touch the floor with­out the pelvis mov­ing. If it can­not, your ITB is tight.
