This may not help at all and i am not really a great person to be answering this. However, I used to jog/run a lot many years ago. When I started back up a few months ago (unfortunately, had a setback since then), I realized that I was banging down too hard on my heels. If you are trying to heel-toe run too much, it can cause knee problems...at least it did with me. If you are already running on the balls of your feet, I don't know how to help.
There is a good article on Sparkpeople, I think about this. http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness_articles.asp?id=823 "How to Run with Proper Form and Technique" is the name of the article.
Now my biggest problem is calf soreness...which is welcome compared to knee pain!
Oh, and I don't know if you are interested, but I blogged about trying to "barefoot" run before my toe injury (falling down stairs, totally not due to running). I was experimenting and it was pretty exciting to me.
