I started developing osteoarthritis in my big toe when I was 15. Over time it caused a cascade of very painful issues throughout my foot as everything tried to adjust around the missing support. By the time I came to Dr. Storm, I had so much pain walking even in the most comfortable shoes (and a thick pad) that it had really affected my lifestyle. As I am otherwise an active 33 year old, it was really depressing and felt like it was taking over my life. I just got my second session of prolotherapy, and I'm walking without a footpad in cute shoes! I feel my age again, and it's awesome.
