I just got my gait analyzed Wednesday.    Thought maybe I could change my form to prevent all these injuries. After complete analysis, the answer was basically no.  If I changed from running excessively on my forefoot and toes,  I'd lose all my power.  And getting back toward midfoot wouldn't guarantee that I wouldn't develop a different injury with high mileage, and it would take months or years to become efficient at it.  I'm better off with lower mileage and managing my pain.  :-.  It was interesting to see the tape and have it explained why I ran a certain way that would appear to slow me down was actually an evolution of becoming more efficient.  (I drop one hip, but in slow motion you could see I had to for a split second else my left calf would hit my inner leg).
