What do you know about MPS (myofascial Pain Syndrome) in relation to feet?
I ask because I think it would be valuable to Pod's to understand the condition further....it seems like PF goes hand in hand with it.

Not really sure of the relationship. Is this the same as fibro. Fibro can cause plantar fasciitis

No...it's not the same as Fibro. Some of the symptoms run parallel and they will often be discussed in the same articles b/c of the Fascial involvement. After MUCH researching on this and reading...I can REALLY see why MANY people are having more than just PF pain with PF...(hips, legs, back, etc) and that MPS may be a contributing factor to why some people aren't getting better from PF no matter what they do.
Take a look at this article if you are interested. I am bringing this to my doctors attention next week on my follow up. My ART practictioner was totally involved on this subject after I told her about it.....

There's a lot more available on it but this should give you a general idea.
