Fractures: Do not cause plantar fascitiis. The numbness and pins and needles can be caused by he fracture...You need to let your doctor know of your symptoms.

Unlikely: C2 fracture would cause problems most likely in the upper part of the body such as your arms, unless there is complete transection of the spinal cord at that level(c2).
