Popping  in arch for a while, recently elevated to moderate pain when running.  NOT PF.  Feels Joint/skeletal based.  Any cause besides stress frac.?

Foot pain: While this certainly could be a stress fracture, it could be from ill fitting shoes, a deep bruise, tendon injury, or poor support for your arch when running. I suggest you see a podiatrist of an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in feet for an evaluation. Bring your running shoes with you to your visit. It may be as simple as an orthotic to solve your problem. ...Read more

What could cause pain is below the kneecap? The trainer said something about tendonitis. Could a quad injury have had anything to do with that?

Try ice, rest, NSAIDs, patellar cross straps. ...Read more

See your doctor: You may need to have a brace to help your patella track better. In severe cases, sometimes surgery is needed to help control patello-femoral pain. This may be arthroscopic, or open, or both. But you need to seek help from a specialist to help control it. ...Read more
