I have an irritated it band. It has been 2 weeks now, I went to see a sports doc. and have been following what he has told me to do. Foam rolling stretching ice, Elevate, advil. He told me I could only work my upper body for the next 2 weeks! That will be a month since the injury, is not really feeling any better yet! getting frustrated! I'm affraid I'm going to loose muscle mass! and start to gain fat in my lower body! that's where I store fat! All my hard work gone to waste! I can't run, bike stair climb, squat, lung, or even eliptical, NOTHING! All hurts! Do you think beginner floor excercises like side raises may help? I was also a personal trainer for sometime, but never had such an injury, I'm being a baby about it! I'm a very active person,and this is just killing my spirit!
