Can wearing high heels every day have detrimental effects?
Can wearing high heels every day have detrimental effects? Evidence-Based Answer: Wearing high heels (HH) habitually leads to multiple changes in a person's biometrics, including increased lower extremity tendon stiffness, increased lumbar lordosis, and a more retroflexed pelvis, but inconsistent changes in muscle fascicle shortening (SOR: C, diseaseoriented evidence from small cohort trials). Whether these changes cause symptoms is not known.
