    Can you reach around and find the sore spot with your hands? If you can you can do this sitting up in a chair with a good back in it. Run your finger or thumb along your ribs until you get to the pain. Once there you have to put pressure on top of it or as close to the side of it as possible. Press in hard and hold, with a little pressure towards the pain. Now you have to relax, take a deep breath and exhale, and don’t tense up any part of your body, including the arm you are using, let it hang loose while you push yourself back into the chair so your finger is caught in that position. After about thirty seconds it should release, or hold until it does. If it doesn’t check if you were relaxed, and try again. Once it releases check the rib above it and below it to make sure they weren’t affected also.

    Have you tried heat & cold treatment?
    I personally prefer icing the area. Wrap some cubes in towel & apply on the sore area.
    Remember to warm up before your run & stretch after that plus do some core exercise that will help keep your back strong during a run as well.
