SIMPLE WAYS TO PREVENT HIGH HEELS PAIN

* Get the right size: your shoe needs to fit your feet properly to avoid any form of injury while on motion. Not having the right shoe size can impede you walking properly.

* Do a test run: before you wear your heels out of the house. Wear your shoes and walk around the house with your shoes on for few minutes.

* Reduce the heel height: you can reduce the inch of your heels if they’re not so comfy to walk but when doing that consider giving it to a good cobbler to avoid impairing the heel form.

* Learn how to walk properly: walking in heels with the correct posture can lessen the pain from the heels on your joints and muscles. When walking on heels, don’t walk too fast and don’t run. 








* Tape your toes: tape your fourth and third toes together to take the pressure off the ball of the foot which can help ease the pain. Use medical masking tape to prevent cramping and numbness.

* Educate yourself on your foot type: wet your foot and step on a blank piece of paper or a shopping bag. Step off and examine the shape of the footprint or you see a podiatrist to know your foot type.

* Avoid thin soles, opt for a platform: thin soles will almost always give you pain on the bottom of your foot. A rubbery will absorb that pressure.

* Take breaks: kick your shoes off throughout the day and stretch your ankles and toes.

* Stretch your feet after you take your shoes off: stretching will target the front of the foot and ankle, point your toes downward, and pull your toes with a strap to get the Archilles tendon and calf muscles.

*Heel style: aim for heels with a wider base or wedge style which allows for an even distributions ofbody weight on your feet. A small heel reduces stability, causes calf muscles to become hard and that can lead to fatigue.

Heel frequency: try to limit the time you wear your high heels. Wear your heels at intervals for safety measures.
