Everything rides on the bottom of our feet. Nature knows that, which is why we have specialized fat pads on the bottom of our feet to cushion the shock and impact that comes with every step we take. These fat pads protect the feet’s bones, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, and nerves. But as with so many things that come with aging, those fat pads can deteriorate, shrink, or shift, a condition called fat pad atrophy. When that happens, walking, running, or even just standing can become extremely painful.
But we can fix it.
