Injectable Dermal Fillers Alleviate Heel Pain and Prevent The Need For Surgery

Dermal fillers are injections that are introduced into the balls of the feet or heels to provide relief from pain and reduce discomfort underneath the foot. When the foot is in a standing position the metatarsal heads located around the ball of the foot are protected by a structure known as the plantar fat pad. As a person ages, this fatty pad diminishes, causing additional pressure to be placed on the feet during standing. This will cause greater and greater discomfort overtime when standing or walking. This discomfort is typically increased when standing or walking barefoot, on hard surfaces, or wearing high-heeled shoes however it can be a problem even in flat shoes.

Most people relate as a sharp shooting or burning pain that feels like they are walking on a rock or the bones in the feet. In the past gel inserts and pads, we applied to the outside of the foot for temporary relief. Now, we have the apology to replace the missing fat pad on the bottoms of the feet and provide longer-lasting relief of pain.

The procedure is intended to provide a substantial amount of pain relief.

During the procedure, a local anesthetic is injected into the area so that minimal pain is experienced when the fillers are being introduced.
