Re: fat pad atrophy

: Fat pad atrophy means the protective fat pad on the bottom of the foot has decreased in thickness. The underlying bones are now more likely to suffer from repetitive trauma due to a decrease in shock absorption.

: There are many insoles both pre-fabricated and custom available that can give some shock absorption. There are even some shoes with springs that will absorb shock as well. One is called Z-coil and the other is Sure Spring.

: Talk to your doctor about your needs and wants regarding insoles and what type of shoes you like to wear.

: Good luck.

Where can I find these type of shoes? I live in Northern California
