PODIATRIST STATES THAT VARYING HEEL HEIGHTS PREVENTS MUSCULAR CHANGES

PODIATRIST DR. JAMES CHRISTINA, DIRECTOR OF SCIENTIFIC AFFAIRS FOR THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICIAL ASSOCIATIONS STATES, "FOOT DOCTORS RESOUNDINGLY RECOMMEND WEARING COMFORTABLE SHOES WHILE COMMUTING FOR WOMEN WHO FEEL PRESSURED TO WEAR HEELS EVERY DAY AS THEIR OFFICE DRESS CODE.  THESE WOMEN SHOULD ALSO VARY THE HEEL HEIGHT REGULARLY TO AVOID ANY KIND OF MUSCULAR CHANGES BECAUSE OF THEIR CHIOCE OF FOOTWEAR."

PODIATRIST CHRISTINA ALSO STATES, "IF YOU KNOW THAT YOU ARE GOING TO BE GOING TO A PARTY AND YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE STANDING THE WHOLE TIME, IT MAY BE OKAY TO BE IN A HIGHER-THAN-NORMAL HEEL FOR SHORTER PERIODS OF TIME.  IF IT'S AN EVENT WITH A LOT OF STANDING OR WALKING, THOUGH A SHORTER HEEL IS RECOMMENDED."

DR. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS NEVER EVER RECOMMENDS HIGH HEELS AS THEY ARE BAD FOR YOUR ENTIRE POSTURE.  UNFORTUNALTELY MANY WOMENWILL RESORT TO THEM ANYWAY AND THAT IS WHY MORE WOMEN THAM MEN ARE PODIATRIC PATIENTS.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETANT ADVICE OR FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT DR. HARDY AT 416-465-8737.
