They say fashion is pain - but wearing high heels regularly can actually have serious impacts on your health. From lower back pains and bunions to restricting blood circulation, these are just some of the problems walking in stilettos for hours every day can cause. Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Sydney podiatrist Nicole Reillyrevealed how you can wear heels comfortably without hurting your feet.

"We always recommend sticking to the 80/20 rule, where 80 per cent of the time you wear sensible shoes, and keep your highest heels for limited activities," she said. "It really depends on the activity level. If you're working around the desk a lot, stick to lower heels or wear thicker wedges - they're more beneficial than stilettos."

It used to be thought that heel pain was caused by bruising or bone spurs, but Sydney sports podiatrist Dr. Brenden Brown tells Coach the cause is more straightforward. "Most heel pain is some form of change to the large tendon that travels in the bottom of the foot and up the back of the heel — tendons hate change," says Brown, founder of A Step Ahead Foot + Ankle Care.

Those tendons are your plantar fascia, and they have a fit when you give them something new to do. "The moment you massively change your activity over a short period of time, they get really sore and angry," Brown explains. That activity can range from running on worn-out shoes through more mundane activities.

Snowboarder’s ankle (so named because the injury occurs 15 times more in snowboarders than the general population) is the common term for a fracture of the lateral process of the talus (LPT), which often occurs during a high-impact event, such as a car collision or a hard fall from high up. A talus fracture that does not heal properly can lead to serious life-long complications, including impairment of foot function, early onset of arthritis, and chronic pain,” says podiatric foot and ankle specialist Thomas J. Elardo, DPM, a board certified podiatric physician and surgeon in private practice in San Jose and Los Gatos, CA.

“Once identified as snowboarder’s ankle, treatment of the fracture will depend on how large and how displaced the broken fragments are. A small fracture that is in normal alignment can usually be treated without surgery. This typically means about 4 to 6 weeks of having the foot and ankle in a cast and on crutches with no weight-bearing on the leg. However, large and displaced fractures are typically treated with surgery. Sometimes this is highly problematic as the multiple fragments of bone can be like putting together the pieces of a difficult jigsaw puzzle," says Dr. Elardo.
