I am in total agreement...

with your assessment. I have noticed a correlation between my sciatic and heel pain, but I don't think one caused the other. I think my heel just hurts more when my sciatic is bothering me, that the pain radiates right down to the heel.

You've also described what I think my problem is, tight calves, hamstrings, and poor posture. My heel has improved ever since I've been working on stretching, stretching, stretching. I just have to try to remember to tuck my butt under (LOL) and straighten my posture.

as for tucking your butt in...you shouldn't have to...there are specific stretches designed to loosen up the tendons/muscles that are pulling your pelvis out of alignment...they work the front and back of the hip area...buy a book or ask a good physical therapist (or two...since they all have a different view of what works good).
