Gentle, Effective Diagnosis and Treatment

Ladies, it is almost time to put away those winter boots and break out the high heels.

After wearing snow boots and flats all winter, your feet might not be used to wearing high heels. To avoid pain and swelling in your feet; follow these tips…

Wear a high heel that fits properly. Look for narrow heels with a snug fit to prevent the foot from sliding forward and a gap forming between your heel and the back of your shoe. Also, wear a thicker heel for stability. The more gradual slope of the high heel; the easier it will be on the arches of your feet. High heels that drop straight down from the heel to the base of the shoe put a lot of additional pressure on the balls of your feet.
