WELL-HEELED AND IN PAIN

 

ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION (APMA) WHEN IT COMES TO SHOES, HIGH HEELS ARE THE #1 CULPRIT OF FOOT PAIN.

FOOT FACTS

THE AVERAGE WOMEN OWNS 9 PAIRS OF HIGH HEELS.

71% OF WOMEN WHO OWN HIGH HEELS SAY THAT THEY CAUSE FOOT PAIN.

WEARING HIGH HEELS DAILY CAUSES THE ACHILLES TENDON TO SHRINK WHICH PUTS YOU AT GREATER RISK OF INJURY WHEN WEARING FLAT SHOES OR EXERCISE SHOES.

ANY HEEL HIGHER THAN 2 INCHES CAUSES A FORWARD SHIFT OF YOUR BODY PUTTING MORE STRESS ON THE FOREFOOT AS WELL AS EVERY JOINT ABOVE THE FOOT.

THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT IS - HIGH HEELS DO NOT MAKE SENSE BUT KEEP A LOT OF FOOT DOCTORS IN BUSINESS.
