PODIATRIST STATES THAT HIGH HEELS AFFECT MORE THAN YOUR FEET

NEW YORK PODIATRIST, DR. JACQUELINE SUTERA STATES, "HIGH HEELS MAY LOOK GOOD, BUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO WOMEN'S FEET IS ANYTHING BUT PRETTY.  HIGH HEELS CAN CAUSE STRESS FRACTURES, TENDONITIS, ALL TYPES OF BONE SPURS, AND ENCOURAGE BUNION AND HAMMERTOE FORMATION."

PODIATRIST SUTERA STATES, "HEELS CAN ALSO AFECT OTHER PARTS OF THE BODY.  WHEN THE WEIGHT GOES TO THE BALL OF YOUR FOOT, THE WHOLE SKELETON HAS TO COMPENSATE.  SO THE KNEES AND HIPS JET FORWARD AND THEN YOUR BACK HAS TO HYPEREXTEND BACKWARDS.  THIS COMPLETELY MALALIGNS NOT JUST YOUR FOOT, BUT THE ENTIRE SKELETON."

DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WHO PRACTICED CHIROPRACTIC FOR OVER 30 YEARS KNOWS THIS ALL TOO WELL.  YOUR POSTURE STARTS FROM YOUR FEET.  IF NOT PROPERLY ALIGNED THEN THE REST OF YOUR SKELETON IS MISALIGNED.  WHEN YOU WEAR HIGH HEELS YOUR ARE ARTIFICIALLY CHANGING YOUR POSTURE FOR THE WORST.  HIGH HEELS MAY LOOK GOOD BUT THEY ARE THE WORST THING FOR YOUR FEET, POSTURE AND SPINE.  REMEMBER IT IS HOW YOU FEEL, NOT HOW YOU LOOK!  STRUCTURE GOVERNS FUNCTION.
