Strengthening your hips, knees, and ankles will often make it easier to run without pain.
The best thing to do is see your doctor who may refer you to a physical therapist
. One can also get exercises off the internet. Be sure to have well fitting shoes, proper arch support, and exercise
on a flat, stable surface. If overweight
, one should lose some weight... All of these ideas will help.
