Hell on heels…

March 13, 2010

By Madara Zvejniece

High heels were worn in ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece by both men and Women. High heels are still in vogue among women just like the little black dress invented by Coco Channel. But high heels are bad for women’s health.

Dr Casey Kerrigan, professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Virginia in the U.S. argues that women have twice as much knee arthritis as men, and wearing a stiletto heels puts 25 percent more pressure on knees, each time a step is taken: http://health.ninemsn.com.au/whatsgoodforyou/theshow/694324/are-high-heels-bad-for-your-health

Anete Broka, a Communication student at the University of Latvia says, ‘‘High heels make me feel more feminine – I look much taller, but the quality is very important to me!’’ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28lb0bPYrbw

Other risks are outlined at http://www.everydayhealth.com/foot-health/high-heels.aspx . The more you weigh, the bigger the risk, according to the experts. In fact wearing high heels can change the shape of a woman’s body as well as her posture..

To reduce tension of legs, it is advisable to do Pilates or yoga, exercise muscles to increase stability, or do leg massage: http://www.ehow.com/video_4404424_self-techniques-feet-high-heels.html .
