A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes: Your heel problem can affect your mechanics of walking leading to sprain of ankle ligaments. Make sure your footwear is appropriate and adds proper support. Are you dealing with plantar fasciitis or tendinitis of the Achilles? Is a podiatrist involved in your care and follow-up? I feel podiatrists give the best care and follow-up for fasciitis.
