HIGH HEELS MISALIGN YOUR SKELETON

Whether you're someone who loves or hates to wear heels, you know the often-painful symptoms that come with wearing a shoe that stands several inches high. "High heels shift your weight unnaturally forward to the ball of your foot and change your entire biomechanics as you walk," explains Jacqueline Sutera, DPM, a podiatrist in New York City.

"They also force your knees and hips to shift forward, while your back hyperextends backwards." This can translate to leg, hip, and back pain. "It misaligns the whole skeleton and that’s in a nutshell why it's really bad for you."
