    Given that we use our feet a lot , and that there are many hard working muscles in the foot ,why on earth would intrinsic teninopathy not be a prevalent problem ?

    If the literature is to be believed , then with regard to heel pain , intrinsic muscle tendinopathy is not a possible cause of pain , since it doesn't exist at all . The paper mentioned in post #1 is to be welcomed , but is well overdue .

    From the paper -

    "The close anatomic proximity and mechanical function of these muscles relative to the plantar fascia suggests potential for proximal plantar intrinsic tendinopathy as a result of repetitive loading during gait and other weightbearing activities. To date, this diagnosis has not been proposed in the scientific literature. "

    Why not ?
