HOW TO TEST FOR ITB TIGHTNESS
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.
