Wearing high heels puts the body in an abnormal posture. This condition can put pressure and posture at risk for injuries to the knees, legs, and back. High heels put too much pressure on the forefoot (ankle ball) and make the body concentrate only on certain areas to keep the body balanced.
This condition may result in changes in posture resulting in the appearance of various disorders. In the long run, changes in body postures above risk the following diseases:
Knee pressure due to the use of high heels can be one of the triggers for osteoarthritis. This condition occurs due to the swelling of the ends of the joints resulting in inflammation and pain.
- Achilles tendinitis
Achilles tendon is a connective tissue that plays an important role in foot movement. Consistent use of high heels and in the long run can cause inflammation of the tendon and cause tendinitis. This condition is caused by an inflammation of the Achilles tendon or connective tissue that connects the calf muscle in the lower back to the heel. In addition to the calf muscles that feel tight when stretching the legs, the disease is characterized by pain and swelling in the heel as you walk.
If there is frequent inflammation or injury, the Achilles tendon will be at risk of rupture. This will prevent you from running.
High-heeled and pointed shoes bring excessive pressure to the forefoot or just below your toes. This condition can cause acute pain in the area that if left untreated can be felt in the long run or even cause a fracture in the spine.
Increasing the burden on your toes makes your body lean forward as you stand and walk. As a result, there is excessive pressure on the knees, hips, and lower back. These postural changes cause sciatica, a condition in which the skeletal nerve is trapped and causes pain, and numbness to the lower leg.
If you have other symptoms, such as difficulty controlling your urine or BAB and leg weakness, then you should consult your doctor immediately to prevent further complications.
- Plantar fasciitis
Some women who wear high heels often experience shortening of the Achilles tendon due to high heels. But these tendons are designed to be flexible. This condition causes plantar fasciitis, which is inflammation and pain in the plantar fascia (thick tissue below the foot that connects the heel to the toe).
- Crooked toes
Persistent pressure on the front ankle as a result of the use of high heels, especially those that are too thin or too small, can result in the following foot shape abnormalities like hammertoes (a condition in which the middle three toes are bent and bunion (lump of bone in the joint at the base of the thumb).
High-heeled shoes can press the ankles and toes and nerves around him. The continual pressure on these bones can be at risk of causing cracks or delicate fractures.
- Sprained ankle
Stiletto or high-heeled shoes are the most likely to cause injury. Weight lifting only on these two thin ends puts you at high risk for falls and sprains, especially on slippery surfaces or roads.
- Lower back pain
Wearing high heels can change the shape of the spine and cause lower back pain due to the stretching of the back muscles or nerves.
In addition to some of the above conditions, high heels or high heels should also not be used on pregnant women very often. This is because if a pregnant mother wears high heels too often, it is feared that it may cause her body and legs to ache.
Physical examination with the radiographic examination, Rontgen, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), or USG can be used to detect the type of illness or injury that results from wearing high heels.
