danc­ing in heels will do you harm

Woman (UK) - - Health News -

True! al­though legs look in­stantly leaner, danc­ing in heels this fes­tive sea­son can cause in­grown toe­nails, cal­luses and in­jury, as well as un­wanted aches and pains. ‘The body has to com­pen­sate to main­tain bal­ance as the weight is shifted for­wards,’ says mr Stu­art met­calfe, con­sul­tant po­di­atric sur­geon at Spire Park­way hos­pi­tal. ‘This causes the hip joints and spine to flex ab­nor­mally.’ Pack some comfy flats!
