7 Side Effects Of Wearing Heels You Should Know
However, this particular accessory is not without its downfall, and looks like the popular saying was right: Beauty is pain. High heels can have a number of long-lasting negative health effects on the body, extending just beyond the foot.
I personally have never been one to wear high heels, as I was diagnosed with flat feet, bunions and pronation by the time I turned 18. My podiatrist was sure to firmly insist that I stay away from the shoe.
However, according to the American Osteopathic Association, one in ten women wear high heels at least three days a week. To make matters worse, a third have fallen while wearing them or suffer permanent problems as a result of prolonged wear.
Although your favorite pair of shoes may seem harmless, they can do more to your body then just cause you to tumble and fall. Even if you don’t have your share of feet issues like I do, you may want to be cautious about how often you rock your favorite pair of stilettos.
