Although they are the weakness of many women, heels seem to cause more problems than benefits, considering that a recent study shows that there is a risk that their long wearing produces to the ladies the incapacity to wear shoes without heels.
The researchers scanned the calf muscles of many women wearing normal heels and found that muscle fiber is 13% shorter than those who avoided that kind of shoes, informed Fox News.
Also concluded that tendons are affected and this explains why women complain that ordinary heeled feet hurt when you choose to wear casual shoes.
Researchers at Manchester Metropolitan University in northern England, say that when they get to wear shoes without heel, calf muscles are forced to stretch.
“If you wear high heels for two or more than five times a week, muscle fibers became shorter and tendons have strengthened,” said Professor Marco Narici, who led the research.
He recommends women to wear heels and ballet shoes alternative to avoid trouble later.
High heels do not affect only the feet but also the column which can be deformed and there can appear insupportable pains.
