Focusing on Foot Health Can Prevent High Heel Hangover

SALEM, N.H., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Every woman has felt it, the throbbing and burning you feel after a day or night in heels. The dreaded high heel hangover. The good news is, the high heel hangover can be eliminated from your life, without having to give up your favorite heels.

Many women are self confessed "shoe addicts" but they don't think about how the shoes they wear can affect their bodies. Not only will your feet ache, but you can cause damage to your knees and back due to the unnatural angle high heels put your body in. Insolia Inserts(R) (http://www.insolia.com) were developed by a podiatrist to relieve high heel pain, using a patented technology to shift the weight away from the ball of the foot and improve body alignment and balance.

"Damage from wearing heels can limit women's participation in sports, running and jogging and even walking long distances," says Dr. Howard Dananberg, a New Hampshire based podiatrist and world renowned speaker. "Proper foot care and paying attention to foot health will ensure you will be able lead an active lifestyle for years to come."

In today's culture, fashion and health consciousness are becoming more intertwined than they have been in the past. Today's women want to be able to run a marathon and then throw on a pair of heels and meet friends for a night on the town. Products like Insolia Inserts meet this need and allow women to be fashion conscious as well as health and fitness conscious.

Here are some simple tips from Dr. Dananberg to avoid high heel hangover:

-- Use a weight shifting insole to reduce the amount of pressure on the

ball of the foot.

-- Stretch your feet, toes and ankles regularly to keep them strong. This

will help when wearing high heels as well as help your feet stay strong

if you participate in cardiovascular activity.

-- Make sure your shoes fit. It sounds like common sense, but many women

are wearing the wrong size shoe which can cause blisters, bunions,

corns and calluses.

-- Do not wear high heels every day. Make sure you alternate high heels

with lower more supportive shoes.
