high heels cause pain

High Heels: To Wear or Not to Wear?

There will hardly be a woman who would not love to wear high heels (having put rationale aside) and appear as a long legged, stylish lady! And there are a lot of them who cannot forego the attraction, despite the discomfort that high heeled shoes bring with them!

Here are few facts related to High heel shoes

what do high heels do to our body

High heels are one of the biggest causes of knee pain because they throw your whole body out of alignment. Your feet are forced up at an unnatural angle, so your body is pushed forward and the balls of your feet are supporting all of your weight. This causes your knees to tense up and work harder to keep you upright, while the forward position puts more pressure on the shock-absorbing cartilage under your kneecaps. After a few hours, you will probably feel some discomfort in heels, but the real damage — such as chronic knee and back pain and osteoarthritis — may not be apparent for some time.

Shoes that have no heel at all can also cause knee pain

As a general rule, wearing shoes with heels no higher than three-quarters of an inch will help to maximize knee support. However, shoes that have no heel at all can also cause knee pain by not adequately cushioning your feet as they hit the ground and increasing the amount of shock the joint has to absorb. For this reason, avoid shoes with heels that are lower than half an inch.
