All About High Heels and Heel Pain
By Your Favorite New York Podiatrist

NYC, welcome to Weil Podiatry of New York!

I’m so glad to be part of this group, an affiliate of Weil Foot and Ankle USA under Dr. Lowell Scott Weil Jr.

I see women walking the streets of NYC in their heels. From cute booties, to platforms, to wedges… we are doing it, and we look great!

But what do I see in my practice? Patients complaining of heel pain. Ouch!

Women wear heels that range from 1 inch to 4+ inches. Whether it’s pointy toe, round or open toe, the height of the heel is the issue. Wearing high heels forces your weight to be distributed on the front of your foot and ball of your foot. It causes your bottom to push out. It causes the Achilles tendon in your ankle to shorten and become tight.

As we age, we also lose fatty deposit that gives cushion in our feet. When women return to flats or are barefoot, the pain can be intense in the heel when walking. What can you do?

Ladies, it’s time to get informed!

You can  continue to wear high heels. Let’s just choose better options.

  1. Consider using a wider heel. A wider heel allows weight to be more evenly distributed and provided better support.
  2. Use insoles for heel. Cushion the heel. We can custom make orthotics to use in your high heels.
  3. Try different heel heights. You do not need to wear 4-inch stilettos all the time. Try wedges and kitten heels too.
  4. Stretch!!!! Grab a towel and hold on to it. Put it in the ball of the foot. Stretch like a ballerina. Point and flex! Repeat 10 times daily.

Walk strong!!!
