Research Heels might be good friends of women, but they are not good for body structure. Experts were of the view that wearing heels can create a number of health complications. One can suffer from disc problems, knee arthritis and plantar fasciitis. Rajeev K. Sharma, from Indraprastha Apollo Hospital, was of the view that women have to pay price for wearing high heels. He was of the view that he witnesses 25 patients a month who come with orthopaedic problems that have taken place due to high heels. “There are numerous ailments, but the common ones include disc prolapsed (slipped disc), knee arthritis and plantar fasciitis (a painful inflammation on the sole of the foot)”, said Sharma. He continued by affirming that heel related problem is not related to age. The problem can take place at any age. Young girls of 20 to 30 years can have problems related to high heels and women of 50 years can have the same problem. When one wear heels then the knee has to make a lot of adjustments to have proper movement, said Sharma. He said that though walking in high heels become a common thing, its damages the cartilage present in the knee.

“Whenever women regularly wearing high heels stand or walk in flat shoes or barefoot, the calf muscles and tendons are placed at relatively longer length,” says Csapo. “This stretches and increases the tension in the muscles and tendons, [causing] discomfort.” Fortunately, only die-hard fashionistas appear to be at risk. Discomfort “will primarily occur in women wearing almost exclusively high-heeled shoes,” says Csapo. In the study, the women who experienced pain wore heels for an average of about 60 hours a week. http://www.hiheelsshoes.com/what-are-the-10-reasons-you-should-get-rid-of-your-favorite-pair-of-high-heels/ Health.com: 7 days to sandal-ready feet Although some women may not want to be seen without their Jimmy Choos or Christian Louboutins, the study suggests that it’s healthy to mix up your footwear.
