  • Will iliotibial band syndrome disqualify me

    I went to the doctor about a month ago from a sore knee from misuse because I was afraid it was something serious. The doctor said it was just iliotibial band syndrome which requires rest and stretching. My knee has been feeling perfectly fine since I have been stretching and taking better care. Will this be a problem at the medical still?

    Specific states, and in some states specific departments, have different standards.

    That said, I had surgery on both knees, a spine fusion and diabetes (I’m rated 70% disabled by the VA)... and got hired.

    A sore knee won’t be an issue... maybe a sign off by a doc.

      I doubt it will be an issue. Answer all questions truthfully. Don't volunteer extra information.

        Never heard of that syndrome until I now. But as long as it wouldn't interfere with you being able to perform the duties of the job it shouldn't be a problem.
