How High Heels Affect Your Health

If you regularly choose high heels to complement your outfit, you’re putting yourself at risk of a wide array of health problems. High heels are notorious for causing foot pain, but did you know that your heels can affect practically your whole body? In addition to bunions, ingrown toenails, and neuromas, high heels can lead to back problems and even headaches. This is because they affect the angle of the lumbar and cervical regions of the spine.
