Plantar faciitis and back problems

Posted by Maureen G on 3/14/01 at 12:29 (041451)

I am curious to find out if having plantar faciitis is also causing my chronic back problems. I was diagnosied with plantar faciitis in June of 2000. I have been receiving treatment since then with little or no success. During this same period I have also been experiencing back pain, leg pain,knee pain,and hip problems. Can all of these problems be associated with my foot problem?

Pf cancause you to bend your knee more, not put your leg through its full range of motion and tilt your hips forward. All this can put pressure on your back. Then again, back problems can show up as pain in the heel. Dr. B.
