Did you know, if do not wear high heels too often, there are four benefits that you can get? Well, he are the benefits:

1. Reduce back pain

“High heel shoes forces you to walk with curved spine causing hiperlordosis,” said Dr. Robert Laquerre, acupuncturist, from Alta Vista Chiropractic in Ottawa, Canada.

Curved spine is not normal. Excessive tension on the bone at the waist can cause back pain. If you temporarily do not wear high heels, back pain can be reduced.

2. Reduce the risk of strained knee and arthritis

Some studies show an association between the use of high heel shoes with an increased risk of strained knee and arthritis in the knee area. In the research by a team from Harvard University, the use of shoes with heels more than 7 cm increased the risk of knee arthritis about 24 percent.

So, to reduce the risk you should not too often wear high heels.

3. Avoid headaches

Shoes with heels as high as two inches can increase the tension on the muscles in the leg. This makes the blood vessels pressed and restrict blood supply to the muscle and brain. The flow of oxygen to the brain and muscle are inhibited and can trigger headaches.

4. Avoid nerve irritation

Pressure on the lower back can cause compaction effects on the spine and nerve irritation. This can happen because of the use of high heel shoes for long periods. For that, use high heel shoes to often to avoid this interference.
