There’s no way to sugar coat the facts, ladies: high heels can be dangerous. As much as we love them and as glamorous as they make us feel, we need to use our heads when propping our feet up on three and four-inch pegs. Health professionals warn that wearing high heels regularly may put woman into possible health problems. The abnormal weight-bearing posture when wearing high heels results in forward shift of the pelvis which increases the angle of the small of your back. This could strain the neck and lower back and increase pressure on the knees, ankles and feet.
Some of the effects of wearing heels include:
Tight-fitting shoes can cause a painful body growth on the joint at the base of the big toe, which forces the big toe to angle in toward the other toes.
2) Achilles tendon:
Wearing high heels cause tightening and shortening of the Achilles tendon, creating heel pain.
3) Pump bump:
The rigid backs or straps of high heels can irritate the heel, creating a body enlargement.
High heels force the body’s weight to be redistributed. Prolonged wear can lead to joint pain in the ball of the foot.
