Women know their fashion and the high heel shoe has been a staple in that world. However, with this popular fashion trend comes many health risks that should be considered. High heels force the body out of a straight posture and into an “S” shape, which causes stress on the joints. If your shoe has a 2-inch heel, you are increasing pressure in your forefoot by as much as 57% causing an increase in stress fracture risks. Risks in knee, tendon, and muscle pain also significantly rise when you slip on those “cute” heels.
Think about your health and not the latest trends! Your body needs to be healthy and that should never take a backseat to fashion.
