Literally countless times each day Im asked if heels are good or bad for you. For the most part, like everything else, moderation is key. High heeled shoes will not kill you ( though the pic above may be a close call). They do, however make the wearer prone to certain painful conditions.

I found this image courtesy of a womens advocacy group, tree huggers. It illustates the massive burdern on the ball of the foot, exacerbating hammertoes, bunions, especially neuromas. The Achilles tendon here is contracted. Over time and consistant use, these deformities can become debilitating.

If you are experiencing foot pain, let the doctors and staff of Emerald Coast Podiatry know, we are here for you
