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.

STILETTO-ENTHUSIASTS SAY FOOT PAIN IS THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR THE CONFIDENCE THAT COMES WITH WEARING HIGH HEELS.   MANY WOMEN WHO WEAR HEELS EVERYDAY DEVELOP TIGHT ACHILLES TENDONS, WHICH CAN CAUSE BACK PAIN AND MAKE IT MORE DIFFICULT FOR THEM TO WALK BAREFOOT OR IN FLAT SHOES.  A RECENT SURVEY BY THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION FOUND THAT 53 PERCENT OF WOMEN EXPERIENCED FOOT PAIN.

"ITS HARD TO THINK, IN GENERAL, THAT PEOPLE ARE SO ACCEPTING OF PAIN THAT THEY DON'T QUESTION IT.  FOOT PAIN IS NOT NORMAL," SAID DOCTOR LORI DEBLASI, A PODIATRIST WHO WORKS AT SPECIALIZED ORTHOPAEDICS AND SPORTS MEDICINE IN COLUMBUS.  PODIATRIST DEBLASI CRINGES WHEN SHE WALKS THROUGH DEPARTMENT STORES AND SEES ALL THE HIGH HEELS ON DISPLAY.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS AGREE, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS, CHIROPRACTORS AND PODIATRISTS THAT IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING FOOT PAIN YOU SHOULD CONSULT A FOOT SPECIALIST AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

ACCORDING TO SPORTS PODIATRIST, DOCTOR FRANKLIN KASE, "WHEN YOUR FEET HURT, YOU HURT ALL OVER".  FOOT PAIN CAN BE EXCRUCIATING, MAKING YOU LESS LIKELY TO GET OFF THE COUCH, LET ALONE STRAP ON SNEAKERS AND GET EXERCISING.  THERE ARE WAYS TO MINIMIZE POTENTIAL INJURIES THOUGH.  HIS SECRET IS TO WEAR SUPPORTIVE FOOTWARE AND INCORPORATE THE FIVE ELEMENTS OF EXERCISE INTO HIS WORKOUT REGIME: STRETCH, AEROBIC EXERCISE, COOL DOWN AND THEN STRETCH AGAIN.. YOU READ THAT RIGHT , WARM UP FIRST AND THEN STRETCH.  IF YOU STRETCH BEFORE WARMING UP WITH A THREE-TO-FIVE MINUTE GENTLE WALK OR OTHER AEROBIC ROUTINE, YOUR MUSCLES WILL TENSE UP AND FORM KNOTS. IF YOUR LOWER BODY MUSCLES ARE TENSE AND DON'T PERFORM PROPERLY, YOUR FEET WON'T BE SUPPORTED BY YOUR LOWER BODY - POTENTIALLY RESULTING IN INJURY.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT REGULAR EXERCISE IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR HEALTH.

STEVEN TYLER WHO IS A JUDGE ON AMERICAN IDOL AND LEAD SINGER OF THE GROUP AEROSMITH HAD PICTURES OF HIS FOOT BECOME PUBLIC RECENTLY.  WHAT IT SHOWED WAS HIS SECOND TOE CROSSING OVER HIS BIG TOE AND THE OTHER DIGITS SLOUCHING TOWARDS IT.  AFTER SEVERAL UNSUCCESSFUL SURGERIES HE IS STILL EXPERIENCING EXCRUCIATING PAIN.  THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS HE HAS NOT TOURED RECENTLY IN ORDER TO GIVE HIS FOOT A REST AND RELAX.  HE SAYS MORTON'S NEUROMA CAUSED HIS DISABILITY.

ACCORDING TO DOCTOR ALLAN BOIKE, AN AMERICAN PODIATRIST AND SECTION HEAD OF PODIATRY AT CLEVELAND CLINIC, A NEUROMA WHICH SEEMS TO IMPLIES A "TUMOR" IS ACTUALLY NOT ONE.  "IT'S AN IRRITATION OR A FIBROID."  ONE OF THE TREATMENTS IS TO USE RADIO FREQUENCY ABLATION, A MINIMALLY INVASION PROCEDURE, USING RADIO WAVES TO HEAT THE NERVES UNTIL THEY QUIT WORKING AND HURTING.

MOST FOOT SPECIALISTS, INCLUDING FOOT DOCTORS, CHIROPODISTS AND PODIATRISTS AGREE THAT IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY FOOT PAIN, YOU SHOULD HAVE IT TAKEN CARE OF ASAP!
