Hunger Gamesstar Jennifer Lawrence almost took a tumble at the X-Men: Days of Future Past premiere in New York. The actress has been frequently tripping herself on and around red carpets, falling in a similar fashion at the Oscars two years in a row. Fault seems to lie in Lawrence’s high heels, which she slipped in while walking up some stairs for a photo call at the X-Men premiere. Just before falling to the floor, however, a nearby assistant took hold of the actress’s wrist and helped prevent another tumble.

Lawrence appears to be making tripping at star-studded events a regular occurrence, all the while still appearing graceful.

Effect of High-Heels on the Feet

Women have been wearing various kinds of high-heels for hundreds of years, mostly for aesthetic reasons. Shoes with heels make their wearer appear to be taller and to have longer and thinner legs, and change the wearer’s gait and posture. High-heels’ association with femininity have kept them popular over the years, but there are definite health problems caused by wearing high-heels too frequently.

High heels also limit the motion of the ankle joints as well when they are worn. The ankle is a very important joint in the body when it comes to walking. These joints have a great deal of weight put on them because of their location. This is why it is so important to keep them as healthy as possible. Studies have shown that wearing high heels often causes the calf muscle and Achilles tendon to shorten and stiffen, which can cause problems when shoes without heels are worn.

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.
