  • NY PODIATRIST STATES THAT MODERATION IN WEARING HIGH HEELS CAN PREVENT FOOT PROBLEMS

 

PODIATRIST, DR. ETHAN J. CIMENT STATES, "SHOULD YOU BE WORRIED ABOUT THE LONG-TERM RAMIFICATIONS OF WEARING STILETTOS?  THE SIMPLE ANSWER IS THAT HIGH HEELS AREN'T GREAT FOR YOU.  THERE ARE MANY POTENTIAL LONG-TERM PROBLEMS THAT CAN RESULT FROM CONSISTENT, EXTENDED WEAR.  MOST NOTABLE AMONG THESE IS FOREFOOT PAIN, BUNIONS, HAMMERTOES, NEUROMAS (UBER-PAINFUL NERVE GROWTH), HEEL PAIN, AND OSTEOARTHRITIS."

PODIATRIST CIMENT ALSO STATES, "THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT YOU AREN'T DOOMED TO HAVE THESE ISSUES IF YOU WEAR HIGH HEELS.  WHETHER OR NOT YOU WILL ACHE DEPENDS ON MULTIPLE FACTORS, INCLUDING YOUR HEIGHT, WEIGHT, AND FOOT TYPE.  HIGH HEELS ARE LIKE ANY OTHER 'VICE'  --THEY AREN'T ENTIRELY GOOD FOR YO0U, DO MODERATING YOUR INDULGENCES MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE."

DR. HARDY NEVER, EVER RECOMMENDS THAT FEMALES WEAR HIGH HEELS AS THEY ARE THE WORST THING FOR YOUR FEET, BUT ALSO YOUR HIPS, KNEES AND SPINE.  AS A RETIRED CHIROPRACTOR I ONLY KNOW TOO WELL THE PROBLEMS WITH WEARING HIGH HEELS.  THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF SPINAL PAIN AND THEREFORE MY FOOT CLINIC RECOMMENDS THAT THEY NEVER SHOULD BE WORN.
