The knee also has the lateral collateral ligament on the outside. I would assume that forces that push the lower leg or knee outward from the center can stress the lateral collateral ligament. ??

Do you have an idea as to how the pain and location from ITBS might compare to that of an injured lateral collateral ligament?
