WHAT IS IT? The IT band – the Iliotibial band – is a thick fibrous band (not a muscle) that starts at your hipbone and runs down the outside of your leg where it attaches just below the knee. It is also attaches to the gluteal muscles and the tensor fascia latae, which is the muscle that moves your leg forward. One of the IT band’s jobs is to provide stability during walking or running and controlling knee movement.

WHAT CAUSES IT BAND SYNDROME? IT Band Syndrome is when this ligament band becomes inflamed or tight. The band narrows as it reaches the knee and it can become inflamed if rubbing occurs between the bone and the band. Those who have this injury will normally experience pain around the knee joint and sometimes on the outside of the thigh. Overuse is the main cause and any movement that causes the leg to repeatedly turn inward is going to put stress on the IT band such as running on a decline, or a weak or out of position pelvis. If the ligament is tight, it’s not going to be doing its job properly which is going to create pain around your knees.

HOW CAN ENERTOR INSOLES HELP?

  1. 44% shock absorption – all Enertor insoles offer more shock absorption than any other insole– reducing stress on the knee joint and IT Band.
  2. Improved lower limb alignment – Enertor Performance insole’s contoured cushioning and control chassis help to reduce tibia and femur rotation so the IT Band does not become stretched and reduces stress on the knee joint.

    Try before you buy.
    Tried in one pair of trainers and felt my heels slipping. Tried with another pair and fit is good. Also love the support for my arches having had problems before with plantar fasciitis NHS issued kit was rubbish in trainers. I feel these would have been far better.

    Ran with these a few times now in my reebok trainers, I’m an ocr runner so comfort is a must as I train on trails. The high instep was strange feeling but got used to it after a while. I may need to tighten my laces as there was a bit of rubbing on the heel. But I could defo feel the extra bounce in my step. Will defo persist and improve my running.

    I have used them for badminton and feel less pressure on the knees. Only problem they are a bit thick for some shoes. Great in walking boots where insoles are removable. My husband also has a pair and finds them comfortable but not experiencing any difference in performance.

    Superb comfort and support
    The Enertor Insoles are superb, so comfortable, supportive and easy to slip into my racing flats or regular running trainers. The comfort and cushioning they offer is fantastic, both over short and long distances. I’ve suffered recently with ankle support issues, but these insoles really seem to have helped eliminate the problem. I would highly recommend investing in these.

    My back no longer hurts
    Last year I suffered a herniated disk in my lower back, causing extreme nerve pain all the way down my left leg. I just got back into running this spring, and started with the insoles around the same time, and the pain has almost completely subsided. I can run further without pain than I’ve been able to since the injury. Definitely recommend these for comfort and support.

    Very good
    I have not had much time to sample my new inserts, but from the small time I’ve had them, I have experienced less discomfort from impact to my feet.
