Day 266- Rolling Out the ITBs

This exercise can help ease knee pain, and it can loosen tissue that might be pulling on the kneecap or the pelvis.

To do this exercise you will need a foam roller.  Start facing sideways sitting next to the foam roller, which is perpendicular to your body.  Place your hands on the other side of the foam roller and then lift your hips into the air and place your hip just on top of the roller.  Then roll the foam roller towards your knee and back again.  Move as slowly as you can. Then repeat 3-5 times on each side.
Things to think about
This exercise might hurt quite a bit while rolling, but it should never hurt after you roll.  There should be no bruising or joint pain.  If any of these occur talk to a health professional.

This is a great exercise that will even the muscle tone of your thighs.
