Good luck... I've had that injury and it literally took me a couple of years to heal fully. Some days I could run fine, others I needed crutches.

Absolutely. I developed it over the years from marathon-running and while it's better now, it still flares up. My doctor told me I'll never be fully over it. I'm certainly no NFL athlete but I'm a fit 43 year old who can still heal. It's brutal.

Yep Glen, same here, I'm 48 and have been running regularly since I was about 20. This morning I did 7 miles and the pain was there whenever I tried to push.

I've tried everything under the sun, outside of surgery, for the past 10 years and it always comes back.

A regimen of squats and lunges seems to be the best cure.

That is EXACTLY what I've been doing in the gym and it has worked wonders.
