Has anyone else experienced it band syndrome from over pronation of the foot (walking on the inside of foot)? It band (illiotibial band)

this tendon runs from the foot to the hip from what i understand....it took 6 years of severe to moderate pain in my hip before i was able to get a diagnosis....and i really hope this is the right one...

As it turns out, shoe orthotics may correct the problem .... My pt taped the arch of my right foot and i can already see a difference.....

It actually took tendonitis of the foot and ankle (very painful and dibilitating) before it was found out.....there is a general lack of knowledge apparently about this kind of dilemma.....never heard of an it band till recently, but you would think that all the physical med dr's i have seen would have known from my symptoms.....it is a scary thought that something so benign would be missed causing my job loss and many other changes in my life.......

My advice would be to never ignore pain in the hip or leg without getting the feet evaluated and trying an orthotic......makes me wonder how many people could be more mobile if dr's had simply prescribed shoe orthotics .....food for thought...
