Heel pad atrophy can occur by impact and gentic. The callous is not a function of heel pad atrophy. There is a structure in the central aspect of the heel called the central hydraulic chamber. It's function is to cushion the heel bone. The heel edema is part of the pf and or calcaneal bursitis. Where any type of impact sports or ethinic dancing performed?
