It's a love-hate relationship - women and heels. We all know it feels great to put on a spindly stiletto or a towering platform. But it comes with a plethora of issues. From burning feet and damaged nails to twisted ankles and back pain, most of us simply accept the bitter side-effects. However, Dr. Suzanne Levine claims there are things we can do to avoid the pitfalls without sacrificing what we want to wear - but it isn't easy.
Dr. Levine recommends a number of foot exercises to strengthen your leg muscles. First, write the alphabet with your foot while you're sat at your desk. Second - her personal favourite - practice pushing an imaginary gas pedal. "You need to strengthen those small muscles that don't get exercised during the day, and stretch the heel cord."
