The problems of the foot and the tendon


High-heeled shoes tilt the foot forward and down while bending the toes up. The more that the feet are forced into this position, the more it can cause the Achilles tendon with shorten.This can cause problems when the wearer chooses lower heels or flat-soled shoes. When tilting forward of the foot, a much greater weight is transferred to the sole of the foot and toes, increasing the likelihood of damage to the underlying tissue springs which supports the foot. In many shoes, style that function, either compressing the toes, or forcing them together, possibly resulting in blisters, calluses, hammertoes, callouses (hallux valgus), Morton's neuroma, plantar fasciitis and many other medical conditions, most of which are permanent and require surgery to relieve pain. High heels - because they tip the foot forward - put pressure on your lower back out doing push back, crush the lumbar vertebrae and contracting the muscles of the lower back.
If you can not completely avoid high heels, it is suggested that the wearer to spend at least one third of the time they spend standing in profile support "simple" (eg shoes sandals exercise), or well-cushioned "sneaker- type "shoes, saving high heels for special occasions.

One of the most critical problems of high heel shoe results in properly constructed toe-box. Improper construction here can cause major damage to his foot. Toe-boxes which are too narrow force the toes to be "crammed" too close together. Ensuring that room exists for the toes to assume a normal separation so that high-heel wear remains an option rather than a debilitating practice is an important issue to improve the fit of the high-heeled fashion shoes.

Wide heels do not necessarily offer more stability, and any raised heel with too much width, such as found in the "Blade" or "block" high-heeled shoes, induces unhealthy side-to-side torque to the ankles at every step, stressing unnecessarily , creating more impact on his toes. Thus, the improved design of a high heel is one with a narrower width, where the heel is closer to the front, more solidly under the ankle, in which the toe provides sufficient space for the fingers, and where the forward movement of the foot in the shoe is kept under control by adherent material through the neck of the foot, instead of being pressed by the fingers forward and jamming together in the area of ​​the fingers or crushed in the front of the toe.

Despite the medical problems that surround high-heel wear, a few podiatrists recommend some well-built low to moderate heels for some patients [citation needed]. Appears a slight elevation of the heel improves the contact angle between the metatarsus and the horizontal plane, thus more closely approximate the correct angle and the resulting distribution of the weight of a medium-high arch of the foot. Specialists other foot, however, argue that any heel causes unnecessary stress on bones and joints of the foot different.
