What is treatment for iliotibial band burning when problem is not helped byphysical therapy and is a not a result of a back problem?

Injection. Typically an injection is one of the first things we try. Rarely, if people try therapy and injections, surgery is a consideration.
Difficult. This is a tough one. Itb symptoms can be very difficult to treat and often times persistent pt and time are the best answer. Topical nsaids such as voltaren gel or Flector Patch (diclofenac) may help. Consider massage therapy. Tens units (electrical stimulation) sometimes helps. Lastly, local steroid injections are an option as well.
