How long does it take I.T Band syndrome to heal?

I have had this for 5 months and its still not gone.

Acute I.T Band syndrome can take a long time to heal. However, five months is quite a long time. You may developed complications because of the condition. It is important to seek immediate medical attention for proper treatment.

When I had it, I stretched like 10 times a day for 2 months. Wore a kind of restricting band on my knee to hold the IT band in place as to not rub over my knee.

Depends on what you did to get it. Anyone is prone to injuries. I got mine from running downhill with a heavy pack on many times

I got mine with running on the treadmill at school. But I also have scoliosis so does that make it worse?

I wouldn't know, i'm not a doctor lol, but I would assume so. You could try doing workouts that have a low impact of your knees, like bicycle, or swimming.

Yea that's what I thought too plus I have softball this year and next year for High school. That's why I was so worried. :)

Better to get it over with in school, while you are under your parents medical care... instead of waiting till you are older and can't afford it, and have to deal with it every day.
