The root cause of most IT issues are weak glutes and weak hips; How much time do you spend on those 2 things?
Where am I?

I've recently had ITBS for a few months and have just started running again after doing 3 to 5 day a week strength training on my glutes and hips. I hate it, but its allowed me to run again. So I keep doing the strength training for fear of not being able to run
Have had IT band pain off and on for the last 4 years. I wanted to eliminate the issue once and for all this year, so I ended up seeing a PT and was assigned glute and hip strengthening exercises to focus on (clamshells, glute bridges, etc). I do them twice a day, hard to stick to the habit but I want to get back to running badly. Have stuck with them for 2 weeks and I'm getting stronger bit by bit. It does get better!
I've had great success with the exercise routine from strength running ( https://strengthrunning.com/2011/02/the-itb-rehab-routine-video-demonstration/ ).
This page listed 9 exercises but I really only focus on 5 of them:
Lateral leg raises
