When Sex and the City Actress Sarah Jessica Parker told entertainment news that her experiences with wearing high heels has caused her to gain an excess bone in her foot, researchers began to investigate the wearing of this type of school. Recently conducted research has proven that the effect of wearing high heels constantly on your feet can cause serious damage, some of it being irreversible.

According to foot expert Jacqueline Ramsay of Corporate Chiropody, the constant wearing of high heels as well as the sudden switch from this type of footwear to flats can cause serious damage to one’s tendons and possibly the emergence of hammertoes. “Hammer toes result from shoes that don’t fit properly or a muscle imbalance, usually in combination with other factors” said Ramsay. The best possible solution for women who are persistent wearers of high heels is to not switch suddenly to wearing flats but gradually train the feet to wear wedges or a type of heel that will ease the pressure that high heels put on a woman’s toes.

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. Henry Slomowitz of New Jersey who can determine the cause of your pain as well as provide appropriate treatment options for you.
