Top 11 Home Remedies To Get Rid Of A Shoe Bite
If the Shoe Hurts...
While there are many professionals that believe we should toss the high heels all together, others take a more fashion-friendly approach: wear with caution.
Dr. Benjamin G. Domb, an orthopedic surgeon at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, says that although wearing high heels can cause long-term damage (shortened muscles, bunions, hammertoes, nerve damage, hip problems), there are things us stiletto-lovin’ gals can do to keep our heeled feet happy.
“If you’re committed to heels, walk carefully and keep going to the gym to keep your muscles in good shape,” says Domb, who also notes that the smaller the heel, the more orthopedically friendly the shoe.
So what about wedges? Although they provide more stability, Domb says that because they still elevate the heel, wedges also “throw your hips into that sway or swagger,” which can lead to hip troubles down the road.
If tossing your pumps isn’t an option, here are Domb’s tips for keeping your feet (and the rest of your body) healthy in heels:
- Put on flats once a day for a little while to give your body a break.
- Don't wear the same height heels all the time--mixing it up can give your body and muscles a break.
- Put your weight on the balls of your feet.
- Allow your hips to swing as you walk--this softens the impact with each step.
