Is there a safe way to wear high heels?

Modification and moderation to reduce stress on your lower limbs

High heels are definitely not the most ideal shoes to wear on a consistent basis. However, like everything else moderation is the key.

If you wear the appropriate footwear most of the time high heels are not bad to wear occasionally. That being said your footwear specialist may be able to make small modifications without changing the appearance of some high heel shoes in order to increase comfort and reduce stress on your lower limbs.

Jeff received his undergraduate education in Kinesiology and post graduate education in Pedorthics at The University of Western Ontario. Becoming a Certified Pedorthists of Canada was an easy decision for Jeff due to the major reconstructive knee and ankle surgery he required for injuries received while playing junior hockey. These injuries gave him a great deal of discomfort and pain both during sport and daily activities.Jeff found relief through the use of Orthotic devices, including a custom made knee brace. Realizing the relief and support these products provided and the desire to help others Jeff looked into furthering his education, then a recent grad of kinesiology, to become a medical professional.
