>HIGH HEELS

>Did you know that high heels may contribute to knee and back problems? If women persist in wearing high heels, there are ways to relieve some of the abusive effects:

  • They can limit the time they wear them
  • Alternating high heels with good-quality oxford-type shoes or flats for part of the day
  • Buy shoes in the afternoon to prevent tight shoes, since feet tend to increase in size later in day
  • See your podiatrist for a custom made pair of orthotics for your high heels

Although heels may look nice, they can be detrimental to your foot health if you ignore the above tips!
