    Good Afternoon,

    I've got a question about treatments is atrophy of the fat pad.
    I have a lot of patients who are suffering with fatpad atrophy in the heel and forefoot.
    Mostly, I will make soft inlays to create some damping.
    I'm curious about other treatments than inlays and gel pads.
    Who have any experiences with other treatments?

    I've found some success with using a deeper heel seat to help control the calcaneal fat pad. Taping sometimes can give some immediate and temporary relief. I'll usually try those two approaches while I work on any mobility or motor control issues.

    Telic sandals and Joya shoes can be helpful for fat pad atrophy. the soft, resilient material cushions the calcaneus and met heads very nicely.

    Dr Martin Krinsky, (in the 80's) conceptualized the use of a silicone filled orthotic to replace or supplement the pathological state of the fat pad.

    Can silicone filler injections work?

    You have 4 options long term:
    1. Stop the activity that hurts it
    2. Progressively adapt the tissues to the load
    3. Replace the missing tissue --> inject it
    4. "Replace the missing tissue" --> soft tissue supplements (eg poron, silcone, etc)
