“I don’t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him alot.” – Marilyn Monroe
Heels have been one of the favorite trends that will probably never fade away. It is true they look great – they lengthen the leg, they thin the ankle. They exaggerate the feminine form. But like it is said there are two aspects of every coin. The other aspect of this fashionable aspect are the side effects of high heels. This trend of wearing high heels is becoming an addiction for the urban lady. High heels may add to your style statement but it does more damage than just making you feel tired.
High heel shoes not only put more pressure on the feet causing calluses, corns and bunions, but they pitch the body forward in an unnatural position when in a standing or walking position. High heels can also cause back pain and muscle strain from the constant pitching forward of the body. In the long run, bad posture will cause terrible lower back pain, leg pains, and headaches. Wearing high heels may also be linked to knee osteoarthritis, a painful, degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of the cartilage surrounding the knee, because when women wear heels, it puts repetitive pressure and stress on the knee joint.
High heel shoes used in moderation are not bad for the wearer. Remember the wise words that extreme of anything is bad.
