Wearing high heels make an outfit look good and give a woman a taller appearance. However, wearing high heels occasionally takes a toll on the spine, ankles, knees, hip and feet. When a woman wears high heels, it causes the body to lean forward and increased the amount of pressure on the forefoot. This poor alignment may lead to muscle overuse and back pain.
If you experience lower back pain, it is better that you avoid wearing high heeled shoes. Here are some recommendations to consider to lower the negative effects of wearing high heels :-
* Avoid wearing heels for long periods of time
* Stretch your leg muscles before and after wearing them
* Avoid pointed toe shoes
* Spend more time resting and less time on your feet.
* Prop your legs up with a foot rest. This would help the venous system return blood from your lower body back to your heart and bring down some swelling.
