  1. How To Relieve Foot Pain After Wearing Heels

    September 11, 2016 by barbara

    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.

    September 11, 2016 by barbara

    Nothing makes me happier than shopping at my favourite stores, having coffee with friends, lazing around at home and watch a good movie or having a good massage.  After a hectic week at work, it is time to do some things that make my soul happy.  Tomorrow I am going out with my girlfriend as she is keen to check out some music production equipment and then we are going to have lunch at our favourite restaurant downtown.  Hope you have a great weekend too.

    September 2, 2016 by barbara

    Swelling in feet, ankles and legs are very common and have a tendency to happen in women who are pregnant and people who spend a lot of time on their feet.  Being overweight, leg infections, long rides on the airplane which cause inactivity for long periods are some of the factors that cause swelling.

    The symptoms of swelling can range from a mild discomfort to painful and possibility causes limited mobility when the swelling is severe.  Effects of gravity can make the swelling worse.

    Here are some ways that can be done to reduce swelling on the legs, feet, ankles and knee, without the use of drugs.

    • Try to exercise your legs whenever possible. Walking and stretching the legs can help to pump the fluid from legs back up to the heart.
    • When travelling on a plane for an extended period, try to get up and walk a bit or stand.
    • If you are overweight, try to lose some weight to reduce the force on the lower limbs.
    • Try raising your legs above the heart with a foot rest when lying down.
    • Reduce the amount of salt in the diet.

    Please take note that if swelling continues to persists for an extended period of time and if it interferes with your quality of life, then it is important to see a physician.
