LIMIT WEARING OF STILETTOS TO PREVENT PERMANENT DAMAGE
posted: May 03, 2019.
Many women love to strut their stuff in stilettos, but they are called killer heels for a reason. Corrina Petric, from the Australian Podiatry Association, said high heels force the body into an unnatural position and urged women to wear them only occasionally or risk permanent pain and damage.
"High heels affect the feet, legs, and the back," she said. "The more you wear them and the longer you wear them, the greater the chance of damage. Wearing a heel transfers the body weight forward to the ball of the foot. Minimal weight is borne by the heel."
