  • CA PODIATRIST STATES THAT HIGH HEELS CREATE POTENTIAL PROBLEMS FOR YOUNG GIRLS

WHAT DO LITTLE GIRLS NEED?  TO BE TALLER.  HOW DO WE MAKE THAT HAPPEN?  PUT THEM IN HIGH HEELS.  MICHEAL KORS NOW MAKES 3 - INCH HEELS FOR LITTLE GIRLS AND HAS TONS OF MOMMY BLOGGERS UP IN ARMS ABOUT IT.  APPARENTLY, WE CAN BLAME SURI CRUISE FOR THE TREND.  SHE WAS SPOTTED WEARING GOLD SANDALS WITH HEELS SEVERAL YEARS AGO AND DON'T ALL LITTLE GIRLS WANT TO LOOK LIKE SURI?

DR. JOSHUA KAYE, PODIATRIST SAYS THIS NEW TREND IS A REALLY BAD IDEA.  "WHEN IT COMES TO YOUNG GIRLS WEARING HEELS -- THEY HAVE NOT YET REACHED SKELETAL STABILITY AT THE AGE OF SIX IF THEY CHOOSE TO WEAR HEELS, THEY INCREASE THEIR RISK OF FRACTURES AND ANKLE SPRAINS, WHICH IN TURN COULD LEAD TO OTHER POTENTIAL HEALTH ISSUES," STATES PODIATRIST KAYE.

THE OTHER CONSIDERATION THAT FEMALES HAVE TO THINK ABOUT ARE THE POSTURAL CONSQUENCES WHEN WEARING HEELS.  IT CAUSES SHORTENING OF THE ACHILLES TENDON AND POSTERIOR CALVE MUSCLES, FLEXION OF THE KNEES AND POSTERIOR TIPPING OF THE PELVIS WHICH AFFECTS THE LUMBOSACRAL HINGE.  THEREFORE IT TOTALLY CHANGES A PERSONS GAIT.  HIGH HEELS ARE BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH, BUT KEEP FOOT DOCTORS BUSY.

MOST TORONTO FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING TORONTO FOOT DOCTORS, TORONTO CHIROPODISTS, TORONTO CHIROPRACTORS AND TORONTO PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT HIGH HEELS ARE BAD FOR YOU POSTURAL HEALTH, BUT PARTICULARLY YOUNG CHILDREN.
