AUSSIE PODIATRIST DISCUSSES HOW STILETTOS DANGEROUS FOR PREGNANT WOMEN

AUSTRALIAN PODIATRIST, DR. BRENDEN BROWN STATES THAT "EXPERTS SAY GLAMOROUS CELEBRITIES LIKE JESSICA SIMPSON ARE SETTING A BAD EXAMPLE FOR PREGNANT MOMS.  PREGNANT WOMEN NEED TO BE AWARE OF THE DANGERS OF WEARING STILETTOS, DESPITE WHAT CELEBRITIES DO.  WEARING HIGH HELLS AT ANY TIME IS AN INJURY RISK BUT THIS IS SIGNIFICANTLY INCREASED WHEN PREGNANT, PARTICULARLY IN THE LATER STAGES AS YOU GAIN WEIGHT AND BODY MASS, WHICH AFFECTS BALANCE AND PUTS STRESS ON THE FEET AND ANKLES."

PODIATRIST BROWN STATES "SUCH HORMONAL, PHYSICAL CHANGES ALSO PUT A STRAIN ON THE LOWER BACK MAKING THIS COMBINATION HARD ON THE FEET.  ADDING A PAIR OF HIGH HEELS TO THIS MIX IS THEREFORE AN ABSOLUTE NO-NO AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED."  

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS NEVER EVER RECOMMENDS THAT WOMEN WEAR HIGH HEELS.  THEY ARE NOT ONLY BAD FOR YOUR FEET BUT YOUR OVERALL POSTURE AND SPINE ARE COMPRIMISED.
