High Heels: Friend or Foe?

Fashion is pain; at least when it comes to high heel shoes.They are so hard to resist and women the world over have closets full of them.However, if our feet could talk they would probably want nothing to do with them.
Have you ever worn a pair of high heels and by the end of the day your feet were aching?Most likely the answer is yes, and that’s because our feet just weren’t designed for high heel shoes and vice versa.
High heels cause you to change your total body positioning.Your lower body leans forward putting pressure on the front part of your feet and toes while your upper body leans back to maintain balance putting added pressure on your knees.This positioning opens the door to all kinds of problems including back pain, knee pain, not to mention the risk of falling and twisting an ankle.Throw in a few blisters, calluses and corns and your feet are probably none too pleased.Even with all of this, most women want to feel stylish and want to look good and if that means a little pain from a pair of gorgeous heels, so be it.
Enter, the exciting world of plastic surgery. Plastic surgeons have recently developed a new way to lessen the stress put on your ankles and feet – Restylane injections. Yep, that’s right. Some doctors are using the facial filler to add extra cushioning and support for the foot and ankle area. With just a few injections in your feet you too can walk in heels with a greater ease and comfort. The things one will do…
Pain or no pain, it’s probably safe to say that woman won’t be trashing the high heel shoes any time soon.
