There are emerging evidence-based approaches to treat foot pain with fat grafting and platelet rich plasma treatment. The areas include the ball of foot, heel, and the plantar fascia. Healthy stable fat on the bottom of the foot is necessary to provide stability and natural cushion to the foot's structure. However, trauma, steroid injections, previous surgeries, and time can lead to break down of the natural fat pad resulting in pain in the foot. Diseases such as diabetes, vascular or immune problems can also lead to loss of the fat pads.

Come in and let's discuss solutions for your fat pad loss and foot pain.
