High Heels, Big Problems

Throughout the Chicago area, restaurants and offices are reopening. Men and women are returning to work and enjoying occasional evenings out as restrictions ease. That’s the good news. The bad news is that, as many people begin to dress up and wear their more formal shoes again, podiatrists expect a rise in three common foot deformities associated with rigid and high heel shoes. Cook County podiatrist Dr. Stavros O. Alexopoulos recommends you protect yourself in two ways. One, save these shoes for special occasions. For everyday use, choose a pair of sensible shoes that offer comfort, support, and stability. Two, learn more about these foot health issues and become familiar with their signs.

These issues are characterized by redness, swelling, and discomfort wearing shoes, standing, walking, or running. Report any changes in the shape of your feet to your podiatrist right away. With years of specialized training and experience, your foot doctor is the best-qualified medical professional to diagnose and treat any issue related to your feet, ankles, or lower legs.
