I agree with a lot of the feedback on this Forum. When I originally posted this discussion, I was in a lot of pain and the only way to treat this was to rest until the pain eased. After a couple of months of light exercise and cross training (no running) my injury was healed. I did find using an ice pack before and after runs helped a lot though in pain management.
Every once in a while now I still get twinges and stop my runs immediately to ensure that I don't have serious problems again.
I have supernate feet with high levels of regidity. With the lack of movement in my feet I find that I get ankle pain in the front of my foot normally around 2 miles in to my runs and lasting for a mile or 2.
I've been given calf stretches as a solution and wear cushioned trainers. Does anyone have the same problem and if so how do they overcome it.
I was diagnosed in Oct/Nov last year with an imflammed illitibal band. I was given stretches and told to ease off with the running.
It's now February and I have give myself several periods of RICE. I was told that this is really stubborn and could take a long time to settle. And even when it settles I go for a long run and it just starts again. The last time this happen on my other hip it just went of its own accord.
My question is does anyone else suffer with this and if so how have then gone about solving this?. I'm running in my first half marathon in March (Bath) and I want to try and improve my pain levels!!
