After a long bout with shinsplints and other problems, I FINALLY got a new pair of orthotics and was able to work my running up to 6 miles four times per week (7.5 m/h pace on the treadmill) and doing cross training.
About a month ago I started to develop an achy pain on the outside of my right knee towards the back. I kept running through it, hoping that it would go away on its own, but it never has. When I tried to run outside on the street, which has a slant, I developed an intense pain in on the same knee in exactly the same place on the inside. The doctor said it was hamstring tendonitis and recommended stretching and an anti-inflammatory.
I’ve been doing cross-training in hopes of being able to switchover to running again soon, but my knee feels very unstable and still has a dull ache when I run (it doesn’t hurt at all when I bike, walk, or do an eliptical or stairclimber). Can anyone recommend what I should do now? Physical therapy? Massage therapy? Ultrasound?
