My job is a sedentary desk job where I was mostly sitting for 8+ hrs. every work day (with a few breaks to walk around etc.) I run in the morning, and I was feeling very stiff and tight at the end of the day and was having ITB problems.
I decided to switch my desk out and am standing at a drafting table all day with very little sitting except at lunch. I've been doing the other stuff recommended for ITBS, but my ITB problems seem to have gone away since I started standing.
Does anyone have any opinion on whether sitting causes ITBS or makes ITBS worse and if standing helps? Am I doing myself any possible harm by standing all day? Will standing more help my running or wear me out? My feet were tired at the end of the day the first week I tried this but generally I've been feeling fine.
