New York Podiatrist states, "think of your feet like the foundation of a house. If two houses are built side by side, one with a level foundation and the other with uneven foundation, they'll look identical at first. As time goes by, the house on the uneven foundation will start to get some cracks and warping. Eventually the doors may not close properly. At the most simple level, heels don't allow your foot to function properly," Keslonsky says. Wearing heels can lead to joint disease in your foot bones, hammertoe deformities, calluses, bunions, ingrown toenails, neuroma—just about any foot issue you can imagine."
One thing that you can be sure of if you visit our Toronto foot clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics is that one of our friendly Chiropodists will take the time to instruct you in proper foot wear and why it is so important.
'Preventative Medicine', it is much easier to keep someone healthy rather than try to correct a problem which may now have irriversable damage.
