In brief: 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 help. Lastly, local steroid injections are an option as well.
