Systematic reviews, clinical trials or observational studies involving adult runners (20 > years) that focused on the etiology, diagnosis And/or treatment of ITBS were included. RESULTS: The proposed therapeutic program works on decline and disappearance of pain, restoration of motor range, restoration of patellar bone to normal, restoration of elastic and muscle strength. Cooling using ice (ice bag) affects the affected part of the pain relief and control of inflammation and improve the psychological state.
