Heels are one of the ways a woman feels feminine. You put them on an automatically begin to catwalk, its so unfortunate that they come with side effects… Let's see what these effects are shall we…
EFFECT ON THE ANKLE
The ankle is very important because it carries more than half of the body's weight thus, it is important to keep it as healthy as possible. Wearing heels too often causes the tendon and muscles (achilles tendon and calf muscles) in the ankle to shorten and stiffen which will gradually begin to affect movement especially in old age.
EFFECT ON THE TOES
By putting a great deal of pressure on the ball of the foot, by forcing the toes into a small toe box, high-heels can cause or may worsen many foot problems, such as corns, hammertoe, bunions, Morton's neuroma and plantar fasciitis. The doctors have a better understanding of what these names are just know that they're serious issues
EFFECT ON THE KNEE
High-heels causes the knees to stay bent all the time. Also, it can cause them to bend slightly inward as well. Doctors believe that women can suffer from osteoarthritis later in life because of constantly walking like this. By limiting the natural motion of the foot during walking, high-heels also cause an increased in stress on the knees.
EFFECT ON THE BACK
Similarly, the back may also be affected by high-heels because it causes the back to go out of alignment. If high-heels are worn constantly, the spine's ability to absorb shock can cause continued back pain. They can compress the vertebrae of the lower back, and can overuse the back muscles.
However, this is not to say that high-heels can never be worn. If worn occasionally, they will not cause serious problem. Personally I prefer wearing heels when I know there will be a car available. When I'm driving or taking a cab. If you're a model it means you practically live in heels, its a good thing models retire early
