I am a college cross country and track runner and never had any knee trouble until just a few months ago. After a few days of running in the snow I got a sore knee, didn't think much of it and took a little time off but it hasn't gotten better despite trying a few different periods of rest and therapy. Is surgery an option? I have had this injury for almost 6 months, how long does it typically take to go away??

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
