Today's article is by Paul Ingraham at painscience.com. Are the little bundles of nerves that exit your spine the wellspring of visceral vitality?

PTSource - EP:10 IT Band Syndrome: Does the iliotibial band move after all?
Physical Therapists see plenty of patients with ITB issues.

This was then challenged. So what's the latest in this ITB research. Do you agree with the article? Give us your input and opinion on our FB Page at: https://www.facebook.com/ptsource

As a physical therapist do you use ultrasound on a regular basis? Does it work? Most physical therapy clinics have an ultrasound unit, but should they? According to Paul Ingraham of PainScience.com, although ultrasound is almost certainly useful for some patients, some of the time, it is not a reliable or evidence-based therapy, and enjoys far more credibility than it deserves.
