• A doctor will determine whether there is a more serious internal knee injury. A referral to a physical therapist can be very helpful. Sometimes an injection at the knee is performed. This is generally safe but a high percentage of those injured are not helped by this. Due to the numbing from cortisone, one can aggravate the injury further without feeling the damage. An injection is best used when there is a lot of inflammation and it cannot be reduced through more conservative means. Through the years, IT band surgery has lost its popularity. It often was unsuccessful and conservative therapy is effective but is slow.

• Orthotics designed by experienced doctors are helpful for difficult or repetitive Yoga Injuries, but temporary versions add to the shoe changes for a single episode. Experienced staff members of yoga stores can help with the fitting issues, because many orthotics make the injury worse. Incorporating a heel lift for a shorter leg should be included.

• Rest is always helpful, but with serious Yoga Injuries it may take a long time to heal. Goals are often lost because of this injury, so early treatment is important. Jeff has found that when the run-walk-run ratio is conservative enough, most IT bands can heal while distance yoga is continued.

• Biceps femoris pain responds to these same treatments, but elevating both heels and immediately switching to trail shoes is advised.

• Many runners experience a strong pain during a workout, but it goes away quickly. However, many experience mild pain, and continue to train at the same level for weeks. The milder pain is easy to ignore and train, but yoga too hard with this condition can produce a long term injury. Short workouts and the right shoe can reduce this risk.

• The correct shoe can make a huge difference. It is common to feel fine in a shoe that causes the injury yet feel strange in the shoe that cures it.

• Many people need to overpronate a little, permanently, to prevent recurrent IT band irritation. Remember that changing the foot movement for even “normal feet” can be a cure for abnormal knees.

• Serious cases may require months to heal. Patience is required.

• Recurrent episodes can be eliminated, but many people require careful attention to all of the details to achieve results especially more frequent walk breaks.

• Adaptation is necessary when a layoff of more than two months has occurred.

• Biceps femoris pain is often a singular problem and does not require adaptation.

• It is safe to carefully train with biceps femoris pain, but it may take a long time to go away. There are cases that require rest, but that is usually due to continuing to train at normal levels.

• If possible, stop the workout as soon as IT band pain appears. Do not push through pain. A mild awareness is OK, but if it progresses, damage is progressing.
