  • PODIATRIST STATES THAT ALTERNATE HEEL HEIGHTS PREVENT OVERUSE OF ANY MUSCLE GROUP

PODIATRIST DR. SUZANNE LEVINE, CELEBRITY PODIATRIST AND AUTHOR OF 'MY FEET ARE KILLING ME', STATES, "SINCE WOMEN ARE AFFECTED BY FOOT PROBLEMS FOUR TIMES MORE THAN MEN, STRESSES THE IMPORTANCE OF TAKING CARE OF OUR TOOTSIES -- AND NOT JUST FOR THE SAKE OF LOOKING GOOD.  OUR FEET ARE OUR FOUNDATION AND THE WAY WE DRESS THEM INFLUENCES THE WAY WE FEEL.  WITH AN AVERAGE HEIGHT OF THREE TO FIVE INCHES, STILETTOS CAN SURELY LENGTHEN YOUR LEGS AND EVEN MAKE THEM APPEAR THINNER, BUT LEVINE THEY SHOULDN'T BE WORN FOR AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME."

PODIATRIST LEVINE ALSO STATES, "SINCE THERE IS NOT A LOT OF STRUCTURE, YOUR WEIGHT CAN'T REST ON THE HEEL, AND THAT PUTS PRESSURE ON THE BALL OF THE FOOT.  NOT ONLY DO YOUR FEET START TO HURT, BUT YOU'VE GOT A GREATER CHANCE OF FALLING.  STILETTOS ARE LIMOUSINE SHOES, WALK INTO A PARTY OR WEAR THEM TO DINNER, BUT THEY ARE NOT THE TYPE OF SHOE THAT SHOULD BE USED LONG DISTANCE -- THE'RE NOT THE TYPE TO FUNCTION.  GO FOR HIGH FASHION SHOES, BUT ALWAYS BRING A BACKUP PAIR.  ALTERNATING HEEL HEIGHTS WILL ENSURE YOU'RE NOT OVERUSING ANY ONE MUSCLE GROUP."

DR. HARDY'S TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS NEVER ADVOCATES TO WOMEN THAT THEY EVER WEAR HIGH HEELS AS THEY ARE NOT ONLY VERY BAD FOR YOU FEET AND ANKLES BUT ALSO YOU SPINE.  THEY JUST DON'T MAKE SENSE BUT ARE UNFORTUNATELY FOR THE LADIES, GOOD FOR THE FOOT CARE PROFESSION.  MODERATION IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES HONEST, COMPETENT ADVICE OR QUALITY FOOT CARE OR ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.  REMEMBER WE ALWAYS TREAT OUR PATIENTS LIKE FAMILY.
