Is hip and /or back pain related to heel spursPosted by Karen M. Morgan on 5/06/03 at 11:22 (117907)
I have been diagnosed with a heel spur in my right heel. For the past 6-8 months, I have also been experiencing a lot of pain and discomfory in my right hip and lower back. Are the two conditions somehow related? What can I do to relieve pain?

I look forward to the doctors responding. My limited experience and sample size of one would suggest that there is a relationship. My left leg is about 1/2 in longer than my right. PF was/is worse in the left heel. I have a tendancy to develop pain in the left hip, although not severe. Right now the back is the killer that has been my major physical limitation since sucessful PF surgery about 6.5 years ago.
