 New Hope for High-heel Wearers

Podiatric procedures like toe shortening help women enjoy the confidence boost and aesthetic beauty that comes from high heels.

Many women never feel as confident in their appearance as they do wearing a truly stunning, exquisitely crafted pair of heels. Yet, the problems that can arise from wearing high heels often discourage women from wearing them. Potential health issues that can be caused or worsened by heels can include:


Hammer toe - Since high heels can force the toe against the front of the shoe, an unnatural bending can occur, leading to this potentially painful deformity, where in a toe curls at the middle joint.

Corns and Calluses - Friction caused by rubbing your foot against a heel can lead to these thick, hard layers of skin.

Bunions - These bony bumps form on the joint at the base of the big toe, or on the joint of the little toe (these are known as bunionettes). For those who suffer from bunions, tight-fitting high-heeled shoes can make bunion problems significantly worse.

Stress Fractures - The pressure that high heels place on the forefoot can lead to these tiny cracks in the bone.

Toenail Problems - Pressure on the feet can cause in-grown toenails and fungus.

Not surprisingly, any one of these issues can cause a woman to have second thoughts before strutting her stuff in her favorite funky set of heels. However, the team at BHP firmly believes that every woman should have the opportunity to enjoy all that life has to offer, including the confidence boost that comes from looking and feeling fantastic. That's why they provide a number of podiatry services that mold the foot into a more aesthetically-pleasing shape through procedures like toe shortening, as well as easing a woman's comfort while wearing heels, or treating any number of painful maladies.

As the preeminent center for health, beauty and wellness, it should come as no surprise that so many women have elected to undergo podiatric surgery for medical, comfort and aesthetic reasons at Beverly Hills Physicians. Their highly trained team is at the forefront of providing relief for individuals who will settle for nothing less than the best when it comes to achieving their beauty goals. By trusting their foot surgery to BHP, patients enjoy the peace-of-mind that comes from treatment from a truly dedicated team at a state-of-the-art facility. Source: Medindia
