There are many causes of heel fat pad syndrome

Heel fat pad syndrome is a condition that causes painful heel impact when walking or running. This condition is associated with complex anatomical alteration in the heel, including weakening of the tendon, underlying ligaments and fatty tissues below the heel bone. Increased strain on the heel due to vigorous physical activities, such as marathon running or brisk walking for long periods of time are some of the most common triggers for this condition. Visit a chiropractor, physiotherapist or massage therapist at a CARESPACE location in Kitchener or Waterloo.

What is heel fat pad syndrome?

Heel fat pad syndrome is a disorder characterized by pain in the calcaneal region of your foot. Typically, a person suffering from this condition can experience burning sensations and tenderness at the bottom of the heel near the arch. It is believed that congestion of the underlying fat pad in this area causes nerve constriction and irritation, resulting in discomfort. The cause of heel fat pad syndrome is not clearly known, but it is thought to be related to reduced mobility and overloading of the plantar surface due to activities like running or jumping.

What are the symptoms of heel fat pad syndrome?

Heel fat pad syndrome is a painful foot condition that can be difficult to diagnose since its symptoms are similar to those of other conditions like plantar fasciitis. Symptoms of heel fat pad syndrome include pain and tenderness in the heel area when pressure is applied, difficulty walking or running, excessive shock-absorption in the heel region, and a deep ache felt when walking on hard surfaces. In more severe cases, swelling in the affected area and reduced ankle mobility can be present. If you suspect that you may have heel fat pad syndrome it is important to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
