There are already multiple posts about various knee pains but none that address a specific question I have.
I have recently been diagnosed with a slight case of ITBS and after about a mile, the outside of my knee gets a deep pain (right where the IT band connects to the outside of the knee). I am doing physical therapy and I have also watched the video on this site discussing knee pain and prevention, and I am doing all those stretches daily. My question is for anyone who has dealt with this pain and overcome it. How long from the time you started doing the excercises and stretches to combat this pain did it take before you were able to start running again pain free (or even almost pain free)? I have done all kinds of research but most people who post things like this on runner's websites have the luxury of taking months off and we do not. I am pretty impatient and always want and expect immediate results .
So to sum it up, if you have had this problem and overcome it, please let everyone know what kind of excersises worked best for you, and how long it took before you were up and running again.
Thanks and HOOYAH
