How to Manage Pain From Wearing High Heels

If you’re experiencing pain when you wear high heels, here are 4 tips to help you choose and wear heels that are more comfortable.

1) Opt for a lower heel in order to:

  • Reduce the stress on the ball of your foot.
  • Lessen the pressure on your toes and toenails.
  • Improve stability and alignment.
  • Reduce the angle between the ball of your foot and your heel for better weight distribution

2) Choose a shoe with a wider toe box, such as a round or square toe, in order to:

  • Avoid toe compression.
  • Prevent your toenails from rubbing against your shoe.

 

3) Reduce the amount of time you wear heels in order to:

  • Prevent your calf muscles from becoming overly tight and sore.
  • Reduce the risk of injury to your toes and toenails.
  • Lessen pressure on your back, hips and knees.

 

4) Choose shoes with a thicker heel in order to improve stability.
