Doctor's Warning: High Heels Cause Snapped Ligaments

Filed under: Health

high heels damaging womens feel

But they are so fierce!

Despite Lady GaGa's affinity for her McQueenadillos, not every lady can handle sky high heels. It turns out they can be hazardous to your health, even though footwear is only getting higher!

"We have entered a moment of heightened impracticality in footwear," said Elizabeth Semmelhack, author of Heights of Fashion: A History of the Elevated Shoe.

Heels may elongate legs and make women feel long and lean, but they also cause ankle injuries, hammertoes and severe pain.
Doctors know their patients will wear the torturous footwear anyway.

Podiatrist Dr. Martin Alongi said:

"It's partly why we have a job. I just figure women in their 20s are going to do it. If they take care of their feet all the other time, most people can get away with it. There's going to be an occasional person who injures themselves."

Despite the options of sandals, platforms, wedges and solid heels, many women just can't give them up - and they are paying for it!

President of the American Podiatric Medical Association Dr. Kathleen Stone advises against wearing heels higher than 2 inches.

She added:

"It's very difficult, not only on the foot, but the knees and low back. The way the shoes put pressure on the front part on your feet, it applies compression on your toes and irritation to the nerves in the toes."

Constant pressure on the feet can cause thickening of tissues around the nerves of the toes, which results in pain, stinging or numbness. Not only can the bones of the feet be damaged or broken, but doing vigorous activities in heels may overstretch ankle ligaments - or even worse, cause them to snap!

Scary! Take care of your tootsies, ladies.
