Foot Pain as we age

As we age, our feet are at a higher risk of developing problems and pain becomes a common problem. On of the main concerns is that our feet start to lose the fatty pads that cushion the bottom of the feet, a condition called Fat Pad Atrophy. This causes a number of problems – particularly for those who may be carrying extra weight. It’s common to accept that foot pain is normal and many foot conditions are caused by the years of wear and tear that comes with age.
