Fat Pad atrophy

This is a condition which may develop in the ball of the foot as the fat that cushions the bones diminishes. These cushions are designed to absorb shock whilst walking and without them people experience pain in the ball of the feet. Our Podiatrists can assess your feet and provide you with the right footwear advice and also recommend special gel cushions which we have at our clinic to go into your footwear to provide you with some shock absorption.

We may also watch you walking to assess whether there are other factors that may be aggravating this condition such as flat feet and may recommend custom made orthotics to correct the posture of your foot.
