AUSSIE PODIATRIST STATES THAT HIGH HEELS ARE TOO RISKY FOR PREGNANT WOMEN

PODIATRIST BRENDEN BROWN STATES, "HIGH PROFILE PREGNANT CELEBRITIES, WHO INSIST ON WEARING SKY-HIGH STILETTOS.  THEY ARE SETTING A BAD EXAMPLE TO OTHER EXPECTING MOMS.  WE RECENTLY HEARD NEWS OF A BAG LADEN JESSICA SIMPSON SHOPPING IN 'SKY-HIGH HEELS' DURING HER SECOND PREGNANCY, AND OTHER HIGH PROFILE WOMEN DONNING THEIR HEELS DURING VARIOUS STAGES OF PREGNANCT."

PODIATRIST BROWN STATES, "WEARING HIGH HEELS 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."

AT OUR FOOT CLINIC WE NEVER, EVER RECOMMEND THAT YOU WEAR HIGH HEELS.  NOT ONLY ARE THEY BAD FOR YOUR FEET, BUT HAVE A VERY NEGATIVE EFFECT ON YOUR POSTURE AND SPINE.  THERE IS A PODIATRIST IN TORONTO WHO SPECIALIZES IN COSMETIC FOOT SURGERY.  ONE OF HIS SPECIALITIES IS A PROCEDURE HE CALLS 'FOOT RESHAPING' WHERE HE SHAVES PORTIONS OF YOUR TOES SO THEY WILL FIT INTO HIGH HEELS.  THIS IS SOMETHING THAT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WOULD NEVER, EVER RECOMMEND. IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL. AS HEALTH PROFESSIONAL WE ARE SUPPOSED TO PROVIDE OUR PATIENTS WITH THE CARE THEY NEED, NOT WHAT THEY MAY OR MAY NOT WANT.
