women are advised not to wear high heeled shoes.give reasons

High heeled shoes are harmful if they are used regularly. High heeled shoes put the foot in such a posture that all the pressure is exerted at the front part of the foot. This leads to following harmful effects:

  • High heels forces the hip muscles to work harder which can lead to contracture and back ache.
  • Deformation of hips.
  • There is high risk of falling which can lead to sprain or breakage in ankle.
  • Shortening of tendons leads to heel pain.
  • Joint pain in foot

High heels seem to hit a ridiculous high last year when Alexander McQueen introduced his ten-inch stilettos. According to a Huffington Post article, several fashion models were cut from a show when they refused to risk wearing the shoes.

Top Five Reasons NOT to Regularly Wear High Heels 

1) High heels alter the anatomy of the calf muscles and tendons;

2) cause tripping and falling, which can lead to ankle sprains and breaks;

3) create foot problems like bunions, hammertoes, and nerve damage;

4) put stress on the back and knees;

5) and cause Haglund’s deformity, otherwise known as “pump bump,” that occurs when straps of high heeled shoes dig into the tissue around the Achilles tendon.
