HIGH HEELS ARE PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODISTS FRIEND

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, PODIATRISTS AND CHIROPODIST AGREE THAT WEARING HIGH HEELS CAN BE DEDTRIMENTAL TO YOUR FOOT'S HEALTH.  ACCORDING TO DOCTOR REDDY, A FLORIDA PODIATRIST, NEW RESEARCH SHOWS HIGH HEELS FASHIONISTAS WALK WITH FLEXED FEET EVEN WHEN THEY ARE BAREFOOT, PUTTING THEM AT HIGHER RISK FOR MUSCLE INJURY AND OTHER PROBLEMS.  WALKING IN YOUR STILETTOS COULD ALSO LEAD TO PERMANENT DAMAGE IN YOUR CALF MUSCLE, AS EACH STEP SHORTENS IT.  THE PRESSURE ALSO STIFFENS YOUR ACILLES TENDON, INSTEAD OF ALLOWING IT TO FLEX.

"IF YOU GET INTO SHOES LIKE THAT TOO QUICKLY OR WEAR HIGH HEELS FOR TOO LONG, THE PRESSURE ON YOUR FOREFOOT IS INCREASED, CAUSING CONDITIONS LIKE NEUROMAS, BUNIONS, AND HAMMERTOES GET WORSE," SAYS DOCTOR REDDY.  IF YOU INSIST ON WEARING HIGH HEELS, LIMIT HOW MUCH YOU WEAR THEM.
