sarah-jessica-parkerSex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker twisted her ankle on the set of I Don’t Know How She Does It as a result of wearing less expensive shoes. “For ten or so years, I literally ran in heels. I worked 18-hour days and never took them off. I wore beautiful shoes, some better made than others, and never complained,” Parker said during an interview. Wearing heels for so long caused Parker to suffer damage to her feet. “The moral of the story is, the chickens are coming home to roost. It’s sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, ‘You know what, we are really tired, can you just stop-and don’t put cheap shoes on us?”
If wearing high heels have been giving your foot or ankle pain and have been causing problems as a result, you should seek the aid of a podiatrist like Dr. Neal Mozen of Foot Health Care Associates who can determine the cause of your pain as well as provide appropriate treatment options for you.
 
Wearing High Heels and How it Affects Feet
High heels affect what parts of the body?

  • Knees – heels cause the knees to bend constantly, creating stress on them
