Every lady loves to look good, and what completes an outfit better than a pair of black pumps? Although, if a woman is continuously wearing high heels, she can become exposed to numerous health complications. The main issues lie within the spine, hips, knees as well as the forefoot.
When in heels the overall posture of the body is altered and pushed forward, leading to misalignment of the spine and hips. This causes pain primarily in the lower back. Secondly, the knee is also at risk for injury. Altered posture then places excess pressure on the inside of the knee, creating long term injuries and problems. In fact, research has proven that the amount of pressure put onto the knee when in high heels increases by 26 percent! If you or your spouse are suffering from the effects of wearing high heels please call Nottinghill Family Wellness Centre for a pair of Oakville Orthotics!
