Not enough padding under feet

    Last year hurt my feet doing aerobics classes. It felt like the bones in my feet were hurting. I went to a podiatrist and he said I bruised the bones in my feet and that it would take a long tome to heal. Months have passed. I can only wear Crocs, no other shoes. When I wear normal shoes it does not take long for the balls of my feet and heels to starting aching and it becomes to painful to walk. The doc said it does not look like I have enough padding under my feet. The bones just stick into the ground when I walk. Is there something I can do?

    You will probably find that orthotics will help your feet. These are orthopaedic insoles that are made especially for your feet and provide cushioning for the bones in your feet. I suggest you ask your podiatrist about them.

    If you are female, wearing orthotics can limit the shoes you are able to wear but there comes a point when you prefer to be comfortable!

    I think you will find that the problem the original poster is talking about (not having enough padding on the ball of the foot) would be more comfortable in flat shoes and more painful when wearing high heels so I would guess your problem is not the same.

    But if your feet are hurting you should go to a podiatrist and get it checked out.
