I had to stop running completely 5 years ago as i had chronic tendonitis in both legs which i ran through for many years. It didn't improve though. It would hurt after walking the dogs and if i sat down for more than 20 mins or so.
I found some clinical trial details online and managed to get hold of the patches they used (my doctor wasn't interested). Started using them at the beginning of this year for 6 months and am now running again which i never believed i would.
It's only been 15 weeks and i suppose i could break down again but i have to say i am completely injury free at the moment which hasn't been the case for over 20 years.
well finally run in compression tights with and without shorts. Having shorts on top looks ridiculous and makes me feel more self concious but I am fine wearing them on there own. I do feel better with them on and hopefully that's not just in my mind.
