    How did the researchers determine that the pain was non-articular? This is, IMO, a common misconception among medical practitioners and researchers. Further, they found that resolution of the pain with Vit. D supplementation was "statiscally improved"...how about completely removed and treated with a simple orthotic device, as I have found? Thanks for the link, though.

    Hardly helped by Vit. D...a placebo would probably have the same effect. Liquid ibuprofen at dinner and before bed works better, as it is an inflammatory condition. Transient synovitis of the STJ is actually what it is...not a Vit. D deficiency.
