|Yep, I use one of these too!|

Yes, I have been using all of these things to try to work out my glute/hamstring/IT band issue. And there are days when I think they are working and I think things are getting better. I may actually get to run again, someday soon. And then there are days when I think, Who am I kidding? This is not working and I am going to have to go to physical therapy to fix this.
The truth is, I do not want to go to a physical therapist. I have been to a chiropractor and a specialized sports massage therapist and if they cannot get this problem taken care of (along with the tons of exercises and other things I do at home), how is a PT going to fix this problem?
So, I am going on, oh, I do not know how long, of NO RUNNING. We are hitting my favorite time of year to run. And I am still on the injured reserved list. And I am frustrated.
Anyone out there have a similar issue and something actually work for them?
I just want to run again.
