My doctor said yes, the PF was caused by my hip replacement. My PT had a great explanation for how it happened, but I forget what it was. In my case the operated hip came out 1/4" longer, which changed the stresses and my gait and caused hip bursitis.

It sounds like your job is greatly contributing to this. Can you take a steel water bottle to work and roll your foot on it several times a day? Can you stand on a rubber pad as someone suggested?

Have you had ultrasound therapy on your heel? That helped me.
