While they may be a fashionable choice, ballet pumps and high heels affect your knees, feet and back since they lack support at the foot arches. Lack of natural foot arch support can result in changes to your running and walking pattern or cause pain in different parts of your body.
Custom orthotics and insoles will help with realigning your foot, relieving any strains to your body structure and tissues. You should also undertake exercise programs to help reduce pressure and strain.
That doesn’t mean you have to ditch those flattering low or high heels just yet; simply pay attention to any pains and aches which are signs that you should limit the amount of time you spend in them.
