A neurologist explained how wearing high heels can harm you
Heeled shoes - it's certainly beautiful, and on top of everything else and helps girls look visually slimmer. However, doctors relentlessly repeat that wearing heels too much is not worth it. They are the cause of many health problems.
Ukrainian neurologist Andriy Timchenko also warns ladies about the dangers. In an exclusive comment for OBOZREVATEL he explained how frequent wearing high heels can damage you and also gave tips to help you recover after a day in spike heels.
Thus, according to the doctor, the heels shift the body's center of gravity forward, and the hip and spine move away from a straight line. The higher the heels, the stronger the muscles contract. As the height increases, so does the pressure on the toes, causing them to become deformed.
"Wearing heels for long periods of time increases pressure on the pads of the foot, which can cause deformity, compression of the nerves of the foot and pain. There can also be deformation of the foot itself, overgrowth in the area of the big toe and its closure," the physician added.
Changing the position of the foot, the doctor emphasizes, affects the posture in general. In addition, there is a risk of changes in the position of the pelvic organs and their circulation.
The natural curves of the spine in the lower back and neck can also become deformed. Visible changes in the position of the temporomandibular joint can become noticeable, leading to an incorrect bite.
"Change your shoes more often. They should be comfortable! Do simple preventive exercises for the feet. Walk barefoot on grass, pebbles, and sand as much as possible. Use massage mats and rollers. Even sleep cereals (regular pearl barley, so it does not hurt your foot) in socks and walk at home - will be useful. You will also get an additional exfoliation of your feet, "- recommends the doctor.
