Fat Pad Atrophy:

A “plantar fat pad” is the cushiony part on the bottom of your feet. These pads are the soft tissue anywhere where you feet generally steps. There are three main areas that have the most padding. The first area is on the pads of your toes, this is directly under the toe. Next to the toes is the ball of your foot, this is the second place where you will find a lot of cushioning. Finally the heel of your foot will also contain a lot of padding. These pads are used for cushioning as well as shock absorption. Eventually (more so often when we are older) these pads wear out. Fat pads atrophy can become worse when wearing high heeled shoes, walking on flat surfaces with no support, even standing for extended periods of time. Fat pad atrophy can be extremely dangerous paired with other problems, such as diabetic neuropathy or plantar fasciitis. If you have fat pad atrophy in any part of your foot you need to make sure you add more cushioning to your footwear as soon as possible to prevent further injury. You can also encounter the problem of callus formation where the fat pads have worn away.

SHOCK ABSORPTION Shock absorption is important for more than just foot trouble. If your foot has too much shock it can travel from your foot, to knee, to hips and back. This is why cushioning is so important for your foot ankle. Silvert’s has a small heel on both slippers and shoes to help with this shock. On impact, the heel can take almost twice your body weight on impact. This is a lot to take on even in the healthiest person. Elderly that step can have even more of an impact as feet get heavier and muscles get weaker with age. Because the heel is generally the first point of impact, it needs the most cushioning to brace the weight. Silvert’s heels are small, so as to not cause an imbalance, but enough to help protect the heel. Silvert’s also balances out the heel by putting a small lift on the entire shoe as well to create the optimal amount of shock absorption. This heel is also incredibly helpful in heel fat pad atrophy, where you have only lost the soft tissue in the heel of your foot.

CUSHIONING: Cushioning throughout the foot will give the foot the cushioning that it is missing to avoid foot pain. This padding needs to be durable as well in order to not wear away before the shoe does. Because the heel is the first point of impact in every step, added cushioning is put into the insole of the shoe to ensure that the heel is protected. Silvert’s does this by adding a slight heel of stable yet cushioned bottom to help with heel pain. A slight heel also helps in providing stability for the individual wearer. Great for senior citizens that suffer from this condition. Cushioning is also placed in the rest of the shoe, as well as having soft cushiony uppers. Because the mal-distribution in the pads of your feet, your entire step can be thrown off and more stress can be put on the parts of your feet that don’t hurt. So it is important to ensure that the rest of your foot is protected so as not to increase other problems in your feet, and provide proper foot care.

REMOVABLE INSOLES: Having removable insoles is always helpful in case the padding does wear away in the shoe. If the insole wears down and more padding is needed, it will be more affordable to replace the insole instead of replace the entire shoe. Similarly, having custom insoles with extra cushioning can be difficult to fit in the average shoe, especially when most shoes aren’t orthotic friendly. Silvert’s makes shoes that are orthotic friendly, with deep shoes you can have extra cushioning and still have your feet fit within them. Even if you have an extra half pad, this padding can easily be inserted into the front of the shoe. This often helps by putting it under the original insole to stabilize the half pad.

Plantar fat pad atrophy or flat pad atrophy sometimes needs plastic surgery to insert more fat into the pads of your foot; this process is commonly called fat grafting. There is also the option of steroid injections into the pads of the foot for pain relief. This is why Silvert’s creates footwear for before, during and after. What we mean to say is we create footwear that is going to give you immediate pain relief, with ample of cushioning and slipper options so you can be covered at all times of the day. During your healing time after your surgery, Silvert’s has options for wide widths and lots of adjustability so you can get any bandaging or swelling into a shoe during the healing process. Finally we have shoes that can help prevent further injury. With proper cushioning, the area of your foot can feel good again and you can continue your life.
