Five Reasons High heels can hurt

Over the years, high-heeled shoes are still a popular fashion trend. So popular, that is causing some women to their feet surgically altered to fit into them. Even without this, there are health risks associated with wearing high heels.

1. A heeled shoe forces the position in a unnatural position that stresses the joints significantly. The spine, which is reasonably flat shoes straight, more forms of relief in the form of S 'on his chest and lower back and hips momentum back. The heel height also changes the amount of weight on the forefoot. A 1-inch heel will increase pressure by 22%, a 2-inch heel by 57% and a 3 inch heel by 76%. This increase puts pressure forefoot at risk of injuries like stress fractures, bunions, hammertoes y.

2. Knee pain is common when high heels are involved. Heel height is an increase in tension in the tendons of the knee joint and partners. The quadriceps muscle group in front of the thigh works harder, increasing the pressure on the kneecap up to 26%. Ultimately, it may increase the incidence of osteoarthritis of the knee and quadriceps tendinitis.

3. Due to the constant elevation of the heel, the contraction and shortening of the calf muscles and the Achilles tendon can occur. Habitual use of high heels can cause a woman to be unable to tolerate a flat shoe. Sometimes this may even require surgery to lengthen the Achilles tendon. Very often, however, this will increase the chances of Achilles tendinitis or shin splints. 4. Changes in posture and balance lead to global instability when walking and a consequent risk of ankle sprains. The high heels especially stilettos, will lead to instability and a major increased ankle sprains result. An ankle sprain is caused by the twisting of the ankle and results in tearing of the ligaments connecting the foot and leg bones and stabilize the ankle. When the heel is balancing on a stiletto heel narrow, if the heel is shifted out slightly a sudden twist can happen to sprain of these ligaments. Swelling, bruising and pain result. At worst, it is possible that the ankle fracture, a ligament can pull out a piece of bone or even bone foot may be broken due to the attraction of a tendon.

5. High heels are enjoyed by most women because they are "cute." They are narrow and sleek contoured to the foot. The perfect fit for many high heels force the toes to fit your shape. The increased pressure in the fingers can exacerbate bunions and hammertoes. The pressure of the shoe itself can cause corns to form. On the other hand. The compression of the metatarsal bones can cause pressure in the nerves that run between them. A Morton's neuroma, a growth and nerve inflammation may be due to pressure. Remember, a shoe that is meant Foot, not pressed relentlessly.

While the total percentage of women who wear high heels every day has decreased, the percentage reporting problems physical use has increased. This is likely due to the newer styles that have been introduced. Some have no choice but to wear shoes for work, however, comfort is a priority. The pain should not be priced like that. Be sure to always wear a shoe that is right for your foot. If pain persists, and visit your podiatrist.
