Risks of Wearing High Heels
Why do women wear high heels? Well for me, I really hate wearing those, I just feel uncomfortable, but in my height, (5'') I have to, for me to gain some inches. Lucky are the women who are naturally tall. Tall looks compliment the beauty of body. Wearing heels is one option for looking tall.
For some women, high heels are hard to resist. As a matter of fact, heels finish off every female's stylish outfit. It increases self esteem. But appearances aside, wearing high heels on a daily basis can cause serious long-term damage to the body, especially the legs and feet. Though women look lovely in heels, they have to suffer form many of its side-effects.
Disadvantages of Wearing High Heels
* Most of the women suffer from foot pain after walking with high heels. Because of high heels the entire pressure of body is concentrated on the feet.
* The entire weight of the body will be directed onto the ball of your foot, this can be especially dangerous for those who are over weight causing the ball of the foot to experience additional pressure.
* High heels can significantly affect your natural posture and your spine.
* It has also been found that wearing high heels can put the spine out of its natural alignment and also the spinal nerves can become pinched and pain, tingling and numbness can occur
* We can easily get ankle injuries, hammertoe or bunions if not wearing a comfortable shoe, even end up with a twisted ankle if the straps don't fit properly, holding our ankle in the right place.
There may be many and grave disadvantages, but this can't and won't stop us from wearing our favorite type of shoes.
In order to lessen the pain and risks of wearing high heels, these simple advice will help you somehow:
* Buy shoes that fit! Sounds like a no-brainer, but most women wear shoes at least a half a size too small. Measure your feet every time you buy shoes, even just a few extra pounds can make your shoe size larger. Remember that the number is just a suggestion, different brands can size completely differently.
* Wear some thin socks underneath. This will help prevent your feet from rubbing against the leather or on the material of the shoes.
* Don't step toe first or place your heels and toes on the ground at the same time. Walk the same way your would with flats - with each step you take, place your heel on the ground first, and then the ball of your foot/toes
