High heels and your spine

Many women enjoy wearing high heels. While high heels look great and are an essential piece of certain outfits, they can be painful to wear and can contribute to spinal misalignment over time. At Maryland Farms Chiropractic, we have been providing Brentwood residents with natural and effective chiropractic care for many years. If you suspect you are experiencing pain or immobility due to your choice of shoes, we are ready to assist you.

Why Are High Heels Bad for Your Spine?

One of the most important decisions you can make daily is what you will put on your feet. If you need to find dress shoes, consider sticking to heels that are 2 inches tall or less for regular wear. The heels that are higher than that should be saved for special events so that you don’t put pressure on your spine.

Wearing heels that are higher than 2 inches can change your posture as your body adjusts to the heels. This stresses your spine, especially your lower back. Your spine will eventually settle into an improper alignment because of the posture changes. There’s also a chance that nerve damage will occur due to spinal misalignment.

How Can Chiropractic Treatment Help?

Restoring your spine’s natural alignment is the only way that you will experience long-term relief. Correcting the effects of long-term high heel wear will take time. The adjustments you receive are cumulative, so you should feel a bit better after each one until you’re as good as possible. From there, chiropractic care focuses on maintaining proper spinal alignment.
