Fat Pad Syndrome?

Answer

Fat bad syndrome occurs in the human foot and is not documented very often. Fat pad syndrome can happen to people who spend a lot of time on their feet, such as runners and triathletes, but it can happen to anyone. Believe it or not, in many cases fat pad syndrome is misdiagnosed as plantar faciitis, even by medical professionals. Because of the confusion, may people find that it does not receive proper treatment and it the takes a long time to heal.
