I would suggest if you have access to the floor underneath, that you install some crossbracing under the boards, in the bad spots, or sister some new joists to the old, and maybe install new joists in between (8" O.C), it's tough to say without seeing it in person, I would suggest you contact a pro and let them look at it. By the way, it is not a good idea to use putty or filler in the seams, it will crack out with the movement of the wood.
