WHAT IS THE TREATMENT?

Your doctor will carry out a physical examination, and may suggest an ultrasound or MRI scan. Stronger pain relief may be recommended and you may have to visit a physical therapist for strengthening exercises. Rarely, surgery is needed.

WHEN CAN I RETURN TO RUNNING?

You should be fully fit again within three to six months, or three months after an operation.
