Sciatic heel pain: Sciatic pain localized to the heel and achilles tendon is most likely related to compression and/or irritation of the s1 nerve root. The dermatomal distribution of the s1 nerve root includes the buttocks, hamstrings, calves, achilles, heels, and outer ankle/foot. Other non-spine etiologies of achilles/heel pain include achilles tendinitis, plantar fasciitis, and calcaneal stress fractures.
