Right now I have three of the five injuries and I don't run - I got them from issues I have with arthritis and just plain walking! Coach Nicole has a video using the foam roller for a releasing the tightness of ITB - very helpful but hurts like heck!
I started running and was fine until after my first 5K. After the run, I moved my knee wrong, and felt a sharp pain in my knee and hip. It lasted a couple of hours, and my knee was very tender after it. I let my leg heal for a few weeks and after I stopped feeling any pain I tried running again, and sure enough the pain came back. So I gave up running. But every now and again my knee will hurt. So I asked my Dr and the response was, "Yeah that happens to everyone who runs. I suggest you try other activities." (which was not at all helpful)
