According to statistics, every tenth of a modern woman wears shoes with heels no less than three days a week, and still does not believe that harms their health. According to British scientists, regular walking in high heels not only leads to damage to tendons and joints, curvature of the foot, pinched vertebral nerve, but even a weakening of mental abilities.

Now, first things first. The first shoes with heels deforms the front of the foot. Because of the increased pressure exerted while walking the fingers have to compress unnaturally. This narrow strip of shoes only exacerbates the situation. All this leads to the appearance of a "seed" and growths. Just look at the foot of Victoria Beckham, to make the consequences of overreliance on high heel shoes. Now she has surgery to remove lumps. Unfortunately, Victoria is not alone in their suffering. The same problem with the feet of the models Iman and Naomi Campbell and actress Tilda Swinton.

A lover of high heels and waiting for the other foot problems - the Achilles tendon, which often makes itself felt immediately, but after about ten years of regular wearing high stiletto. Because of the unnatural position of the tendon extending from the heel to the calf muscles, it shrinks and becomes less flexible. Therefore, with age it becomes increasingly difficult to walk in flat shoes (because the tendon is already accustomed to the rise), brisk walking or jogging deliver the same pain as when stretched.

High heels and a negative effect on your posture. And also increase the risk of crushing the vertebrae, which leads to a sharp pain in the neck and lower back, and then to radiculitis. Not to mention the fact that in the fall, you can earn not only the line of the joint, but a broken ankle.
