If a girl wears shoes with high heels, then this immediately attracts the attention of men, although the teamwork of figure, posture and gait is important. Each step of the beauty is like the movement of an equilibrist, who walks with ostentatious ease along the tightrope, doing it gracefully, despite the danger.
Statistics say that a woman with a heel is admired by 3 out of 4 men and every second woman. However, do not forget about the dangers lurking in heels, therefore, we will consider the main myths about heels and what the danger of ignorance in this matter.
With a heel, the center of gravity does not shift. If there is a high heel, then the body is forced to adapt to it, a creature in unusual conditions. In this case, the center of gravity shifts forward, while the back, to maintain balance, goes back. This is fraught with displacement of the pelvis and vertebrae, and later with displacement of internal organs. As a result, inflammatory processes in the digestive system and pelvic organs, osteochondrosis, curvature of the spine, muscle pain, and generally various back diseases are possible.
Wearing a heel distributes the load on the foot evenly. Not quite so - only the forefoot is overloaded. During wearing, the fulcrum changes - not the entire surface is loaded, but only the sock. What is it fraught with? Abnormal load distribution causes the calcaneal tendon not to engage, atrophying over time. The ankle joint is also limited in movement. The metatarsal bones and muscles are also subject to deformation. The foot stops springing, as there is a violation of blood circulation. As a result, there are corns on the legs, transverse flat feet, inflammation and deformity of the joints, thrombophlebitis, edema and varicose veins. By the way, flat feet are not so harmless. This disease, by the way, occurs in women 10 times more often than in men, due to the same high heels. Because of him, the outlines of the foot change, subsequently bumps appear on the legs, pain, swelling appears in the foot, and the legs quickly get tired. With the development of flat feet, the pain becomes constant, movement even over short distances becomes unbearable.
Wearing heels is not dangerous for pregnant women. The above problems are long-term, but if a woman is pregnant, the consequences of wearing heels can appear much faster. The fact is that the muscles are significantly overstrained, while an additional load is placed on the spine, and that one already suffers. This disrupts the blood supply to the pelvic organs, which is so important for this condition. As a result, hypertonicity of the uterus is possible, which increases the threat of miscarriage, as well as incorrect position of the fetus. Stretch marks may appear on the abdomen due to the forward shift of the center of gravity, pains are possible in the back, and swelling on the legs.
Heels are traumatic. But this is just the truth. The injuries of women with heels are much more serious than those of the "mundane". The danger of injury is easily explained - it is much more difficult to maintain balance in heels, and do not forget about the effect of height. Instead of a bruise, the result is a fracture, a bruise is replaced by a sprain - a lot of trouble in the end.
Heels are fraught with only physical problems. In fact, the range of problems that can arise from wearing heels is much wider. More recently, scientists have found a link between wearing such shoes with infertility, decreased libido in women, and impaired brain function.
It is possible to solve the problem with heels using insoles. If the insole contains a preventive stupinator, then the shoe becomes much more comfortable, the foot is springy, the load on the foot is distributed more evenly. This is a good prevention of flat feet. However, in the case of heels, the insole is not a panacea, the risks only decrease, and do not completely disappear.
There is no need to alternate shoes. Doctors still advise to alternate different types of shoes, changing clothes several times a day. This will help you not to get hung up on heels and wear them a week only a couple of times for several hours. Thus, it will not cause any special harm to health.
You can easily upgrade to a lower heel. If you wear multi-centimeter heels, the foot will change its structure, the muscles will begin to work in a different mode. This is why switching to the "right" footwear can be quite painful. Women who wear heels for a long time complain that they simply cannot switch to other shoes. And this is actually the case - the feet cannot immediately get used to new shoes. Yes, and the process of getting used to heels usually goes gradually - first a low one is used, then a higher one, and only then a tall stiletto heel. It is wise to apply the same approach to reverse motion. First, you should switch to a medium heel, then to a low one, and only then switch to sports shoes. You shouldn't change the height of your shoes overnight.
Everyone can wear heels. In fact, a predisposition to diseases of the legs (varicose veins, arthritis, etc.) is already a reason to think about wearing heels. You may not have these problems, but your closest relatives do, which can lead to diseases. So don't expect the first symptoms. It is also not recommended to use heels for those who are often on their feet - teachers, salesmen, hairdressers.
Heels are not for men at all. This version is not supported by historians, in their opinion, heels were originally invented for men and they used them. Still pampered Roman patricians used such shoes, and all nations in which there was horseback riding used a heel. It helped to better control the horse and not lose the stirrup, as a result, it was easier to stay in the saddle. Today, in men's fashion, heels with a height of 2 to 4 cm are classic. However, modern designers are striving to revive the Middle Ages, when court ladies' men wore heels up to 10 cm in height. Today in the collection of Rui Leonardes there are sharp-toed men's shoes with the most real stilettos, Rick Owens offers boots with high and thick heels. Such fashion trends also affected giants like Gaultier and Dolce & Gabbana. There has been an increase in the number of high platform shoes in their collections.
It is worth giving up heels altogether. A person has an interesting anatomical feature - flat-soled shoes are also not very useful; when walking, the foot cannot naturally roll. Doctors recommend using a small heel of 2-3 cm. In this case, it will act as a spring, making it easier for the legs to work. But the heel above 5 cm is considered harmful by orthopedists.
