AS FEET AGE, WEARING HEELS BECOME MORE PROBLEMATIC

 

 

 

PODIATRIST, DR. ELISA KAVANAGH STATES, "NOT ONLY DO FOOT PROBLEMS GET WORSE OVER TIME, BUT OUR BODIES ALSO BECOME LESS ABLE TO HANDLE HEELS.  IN OUR THIRTIES OR FORTIES, THE FAT PAD ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FOOT STARTS TO ATROPHY AND WE LOSE SOME OF OUR NATURAL CUSHIONING."

PODIATRIST KAVANAGH ALSO STATES, "WEARING HIGH HEELS HASTENS THE FAT LOSS, INCREASING THE CHANCE OF DEVELOPING PAINFUL NEUROMAS (NERVE INFLAMMATION BETWEEN THE TOES) AND INFLAMMATION  IN GENERAL.  WHEN HIGH-HEEL DEVOTEES HIT THEIR 40'S, LIKE VICTORIA BECKHAM AND SARAH JESSICA PARKER (WHO CLAIMS THAT RUNNING AROUND MANHATTAN IN HER MANOLOS RUINED HER FEET), THEY MAY FIND THAT THEY CAN'T STAY IN HEELS AS LONG AS THEY USED TO."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS ALWAYS ADVISES OUR PATIENTS IN REGARDS TO PROPER FOOTWEAR AND ONE THING WE ALWAYS TELL OUR FEMALE PATIENTS IS TO REFRAIN FROM WEARING HIGH HEELS. YOUR POSTURE STARTS WITH YOUR FEET AND WHEN YOU PUT ON HEELS YOU AFFECT EVERY JOINT ABOVE THE FOOT IN A NEGATIVE MANNER.
