Heel Flip Flop

Flip flops cause health problems

Flip-flops are a big part of the summer scene. While they may be stylish and comfortable at first, flip-flops are in really cause problems for your feet, ankles, knees, hips and back. Flip-flop may be a popular shoe for the summer, but recent study by American School of Sports Medicine shows that this is a possible cause of discomfort and body aches. The study goes on to say that these are more harmful than other footwear including high heels. Prof. Wendi Weimer of Auburn University, says she became interested in the flip-flops when he noticed increased pain in the leg when her students returned from summer and the transition back into the use of tennis shoes and street shoes.

The researchers found that when study participants wore flip-flops, took shorter steps and their heels hit the ground with less vertical force than when wearing athletic shoes. The flip-flop users do not bring your toes up quite as much during the swing phase leg, creating a larger ankle angle and shorter stride. The researchers felt this last remark was due to carriers grip the flip-flops with their toes

For the human body, everything starts with the foot. If there is adequate support, no way to adequately support the rest of the body as they move up the chain: the knees, lower back, shoulders and neck. It's the old song, the shin bone is connected to the knee bone. Walking puts up to 1.5 times the body weight on each foot. Vigorous exercise can increase the load, with an hour of jogging is estimated that the generation of millions of pounds of pressure.

Ankle sprains are common due to get off a curb or stepping wrong, the curves of the ankle, but the failure of Flip nor cling to the supports. The open nature of flip-flops also makes the wearer more susceptible to stubbed toes, feet and exposed to the environment. The toe grip can be useful for preventing the foot from sliding forward in a convenient sandal, but flip flops with bands in the upper parts of the foot or the arch are recommended to support and keep the shoe on the foot. thong sandals are very popular with the same proportions and structures of flip flops, but with the addition of a new sling or strap ankle that holds and supports the foot in a stable position. arch support is also found in many more expensive and enhanced flip flops instead of the ubiquitous foam materials. Spend more on better quality, better created shoe can influence the user's health and safety. Such shoes are also commonly equipped with rubber soles and better pillows.
