PODIATRIST, JOHN LINTIER STATES, "WEARING HIGH-HEELED BOOTS PUT WOMEN AT RISK FOR SLIPPING ON ICE AND SNOW AND INJURING THEMSELVES.  WEARING HIGH HEELS MAKES YOU MORE UNSTABLE WHEN WALKING OR STANDING ON DRY SURFACES, LET ALONE SLIPPERY ONES LIKE ICE OR SNOW.  A LOW-HEELED WINTER BOOT IS A LOT MORE FASHIONABLE THAN A CAST AND CRUTCHES."

PODIATRIST LINTIER ALSO STATES, "I RECOMMEND WOMEN SCUFF UP THE SOLES OF THEIR NEW BOOTS OR BUY ADHESIVE RUBBER SOLES FOR BETTER TRACTION.  IF, WHILE WEARING HIGH-HEELED BOOTS, A WOMENS ANKLES ROLL INWARD OR OUTWARD, SHE CAN BREAK HER ANKLE.  IF IT TWISTS, LIGAMENTS CAN BE STRETCHED OR TORN, CAUSING A SPRAIN.  THIS TIME OF YEAR I SEE A VARIETY OF BROKEN BONES IN PATIENTS WHO HAVE SLIPPED ON ICE.  I RECOMMEND THAT WOMEN WHO'VE HURT THEMSELVES GET TO A DOCTOR AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE.  THE RICE METHOD -- REST, ICE COMPRESSION AND ELEVATION -- WILL HELP REDUCE SWELLING AND PAIN."

INJURIES TO THE FOOT AND ANKLE CAN COME IN MANY FORMS AND VIA MANY DIFFERENT MECHANISMS.  CERTAINLY WINTER WITH IT'S ICE AND SNOW AND IMPROPER FOOT WEAR POSE MANY PROBLEMS FOR PEDESTRIANS.  AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE ARE EQUIPPED TO HANDLE ALL TYPES OF FOOT INJURIES COMPETENTLY.  WE CARRY THE LATEST AND INTENSIVE INVENTORY OF PHYSICAL THERAPY EQUIPMENT AS WELL ALL OF OUR FOOT SPECIALIST ARE HIGHLY EDUCATED AND TRAINED AND CONSTANTLY STAY CURRENT BY ATTENDING THE MOST RELEVANT SEMINARS AND COURSES IN PODIATRY, CHIROPODY AND PODIATRY MEDICINE.
