Dangers of Wearing High Heels

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.[1]

Think about your health and not the latest trends! Your body needs to be healthy and that should never take a backseat to fashion.
