ACCORDING TO DOCTOR ALAN BERMAN, A NEW YORK PODIATRIST, PEOPLE WITH ACHING FEET ARE OPTING FOR BOTOX.  SMALL CUSHIONS OF FATTY ACIDS THAT PROTECT FEET FROM TORQUE AND SHEAR ARE DECIDEDLY CRUCIAL AS WE POUND THROUGH LIFE.  WEARING HIGH HEELS CAN WEAR OUT THE FAT PAD AT THE BASE OF THE TOES.  THIN-SOLED ATHLETIC CLEATS AND STEROID INJECTIONS FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS (A FREQUENT CAUSE OF CHRONIC HEEL PAIN) CAN SOMETIMES SHRINK PADDING UNDER THE HEEL AND ON THE OUTER ARCH CONTACT AREA.  AGING, HAVING DIABETES, OR BEING OVERWEIGHT ALSO PUT FEET AT RISK.

"PAIN OCCURS WHEN AREAS OF THE FEET ARE SUBJECTED TO UNACCUSTOMED STRAIN AS THE PADDING DETERIORATES".  BOTOX INJECTIONS MAY RELIEVE PAIN FOR ABOUT THREE MONTHS OR THE AMOUNT OF TIME THE DRUG REMAINS IN THE SYSTEM, ACCORDING TO ONGOING RESEARCH.  PLUMPING UP SORE FEET WITH NEWER SKIN FILLERS SUCH AS JUVEDERM AND SCULPTRA ALSO SEEM PROMISING.  

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT WEARING SUPPORTIVE INSOLES AND CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS AND WELL FITTING SHOES REMAIN THE GOLD STANDARD FOR LASTING RELIEF.
