the joint degeneration in the spine may cause inflammation to the back but not likely enough to make the foot swollen.
if you had history of high impact activities or injuries, get an xray to rule out fractures.
if the foot and leg are swollen, you may have venous stasis (incompetant valves in the veins that prevent allow fluid to drain back down to the feet).  
in the meantime, elevate the foot and apply an ace bandage: wrapping from the base of the toes and overlapping and going up towards the ankle.
