I too have had similar issue(s) and unfortunately running seems to be off my "options" list. I have interacted with accupuncture (YES it helped!), chiropractic, trainer, and sports massage. The latter has made the most difference, but each specialty has identified the same imbalances that are causing my pain.
Doing various stretches and strengthening exercises do help, but if I want to stay happy, mobile, and pain-free (hips) for the next 30 years, running needs to NOT be on my plate. (I'm 51 now.)
I just had to decide to accept that I've done a lot to gain improvement but not enough to solve the core problems (probably stemming from previous injuries).
Running isn't for every body...
