I had these several years ago. Very painful! I've done the following to address mine:

  • Minimize running on concrete/asphalt.
  • Make an effort to run on dirt, grass, gravel, etc (natural ground) - trail running
  • Replace shoes often - especially when running on concrete/asphalt (yes, every sport is expensive...this is how running gets expensive...lol)
  • When ground is wet, I'll run on a track at a high school or middle school. These are rubberized/squishy.
  • Mix it up - biking, swimming, yoga, weights, BeachBody videos (workout in my living room)
  • I've fixed my food intake so that I've lost weight. Less weight = less pressure/force/stress on my joints and bones
