Many women wear high heels every day some to make them look taller, others just because they’re cute. Did you know that high heels can damage your body? Most women are wearing heels these days because they look cute and provide height. But there are consequences when it comes to wearing heels. They have a bad reputation for being bad for comfort, but this hardly stops women from wearing them. These shoes can be costly in more ways than one, they can damage the hips, knees, ankles and feet. One in ten women wear high heels at least three days a week, and a third have fallen while wearing them. Statistics shows that high heels are one of the biggest factors that lead to foot problems in women. A third of these women are suffering from permanent problems from constantly wearing them. Wearing heels frequently can cause long-term problems because you are constantly bending the toes into an unnatural position. This can cause ingrown toenails and irreversible damage to leg tendons. Shoving the toes in a heel can cause nerve damage and bunions. They have also been linked to overworked or injured leg muscles, osteoarthritis of the knee, plantar fasciitis, and low back pain.
