Yes: The sacro-iliac (si) joint in the back is located near the roots to the nerves that supply the lower extremity - any swelling in the area can cause irritation/impingement of the roots which control sensory (what you feel), motor (how you move) and autonomic (things that are automatic like swelling) nerves...Talk to your pcp who may refer you to a back specialist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heel pain: More likely cause is heel spur where achilles tendon attaches to calcaneus (heelbone), especially in women who wear high heels often.

Rarely: It is possible you could get plantar fasciitis if you are placing more stress on the foot. For instance, if you had knee surgery on the right and you increased the amount of standing on the left foot, you could inflame the plantar fascia. Also, if you are not walking normally in general due to the knee replacement you could overstress the plantar fascia. If you suspect this, talk to podiatrist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
They aren't!: The best shoes for a person with plantar fasciitis are those that have a sturdy back to them, which sandals don't have.

No: It's possible to have a heel spur — a bony growth that usually begins on the front of your heel bone and points toward the arch of your foot — without realizing it. Heel spurs don't always cause pain. In fact, heel spurs often show up unexpectedly on X-rays taken for some other problem. Heel spurs occur in at least half the people who have plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis), a painful condition involving the thick tissue that runs between your heel bone and your toes. In the past, doctors often performed surgery to remove heel spurs, believing them to be the cause of the pain associated with plantar fasciitis. In treating plantar fasciitis now, doctors rely more on ice, arch supports, physical therapy and pain medications, and surgery is rarely performed. ...Read more
