Wanted six "wounded" shoes
A US survey of 640 women showed that more than half of the respondents were dissatisfied with the shoes they were wearing. The main reason was that the shoes were not comfortable for the feet. In addition, the American Ankle Joint Association (AOFAS) pointed out that about 800,000 female patients undergo foot surgery each year. And these are the health crises caused by unsuitable shoes...
High Heels: The Unbearable Weight of the Pelvis
Seemingly swaying on high heels, it may affect the entire body. In addition to deforming and inflaming the bones on the soles of the feet and the adjacent fascia due to excessive force, the muscles of the calf, buttocks, the back, and the back are also in tension. Because high-heeled shoes make the body forced forward, destroying the normal transmission route of gravity, and maintaining balance and keeping upright, these parts of the muscles need to work together. In the long run, of course, back pain and fatigue will occur.
Not only that, in the long term, the pelvis suffers stealth injuries. Since the human body moves forward after wearing the shoe, the weight of the upper body is no longer transmitted through the pelvis to the knee, calf, shin, and foot to the ground, but is directly transmitted from the pelvis to the feet. This will increase the burden on the pelvis. In the long term, the pelvic entrance will gradually narrow, and it may cause difficulties in childbirth.
Pointed shoes: the pain of modern foot binding
The "big hallux valgus" and "hammer toe" are typical examples of pointed shoes. Hallux valgus refers to the outward inclination of the thumb that is greater than the physiological angle of 15 degrees because the tight toe always presses against the outward bending of the toe; and the "hammer toe" is because the pointed toe will be big toe and small The toes are squeezed in the middle and the middle toes are forced to lift up and twist. These are the deformities of the feet caused by the pointed shoes, and may be accompanied by inflammation of the local tissue. In severe cases, bone spurs may form, causing pain. Unbearable.
Inlays are also troublesome for feet caused by wearing pointed shoes. Because the toenails are growing, and the pointed toe cap has nowhere to go, it can only be embedded in the toe flesh, which is why the ingrown toenail is formed. Followed by a paronychia, toes, swelling, pain, soft tissue, purulent, etc., even severe cases need to pull the toenail, remove pustules to recover.
Narrow shoes: the first eye of the corn
The corns are thickening of small pieces of skin or dead cells in groups. They are a type of self-protection from external damage to the feet, often growing on the back of the toes or between the toes. However, when they grow too much, they cause pain. The main cause of long corns is the friction between the narrow shoes and the feet. When buying shoes, we often only pay attention to the length of the shoes, and do not pay attention to the width of the shoes, or think that the shoes are always crossing the big ones, so it's okay to be tight and narrow. The result is to make your feet feel wronged and the corns come into being. .
Sports Shoes and Boots: The Best Hotbed for Athlete's Foot
There are 250,000 sweat glands on the person's foot, far more than other parts of the body, which can effectively regulate the temperature of our feet. However, when our feet are in a confined space for a long period of time (for example, more than 16 hours a day), sweat does not evaporate, and the hot and humid environment becomes a hotbed for twins in Hong Kong. The permeability of sports shoes and boots is very poor, and it is the most suitable growth environment for the feet of Hong Kong. They will make the skin of the feet red, fever, itching, peeling, etc., and are miserable. There is another health crisis in wearing sports shoes that is causing flat feet. Sports shoes are mostly flat bottom, coupled with the environment is hot and humid, the plantar ligament is easy to become loose and elongated, the foot gradually widens, forming a flat foot.
Flats: Don't call the heel too heavy
High-heeled shoes cannot be worn for a long time. Flat shoes are also the same. Because wearing flat shoes will transfer more than 60% of the weight to the heel, resulting in damage to the bursa on the heel, causing bursitis. After the bursa becomes inflamed, the heel will feel swollen and painful. But as long as you change the shoe with the right height in time, bursitis usually recovers within 1-2 weeks. The appropriate heel height should be maintained at about 2-4 cm, so that the front and rear feet will each have a weight of 50%, natural toes and heels will not call the pain.
Hard-soled shoes: shake your brain carefully
The biggest disadvantage of hard-soled shoes is that the cushioning force of the sole is weak, and the foot is directly subjected to the impact of the ground. Especially when running, the pressure on the sole is 4 to 5 times that of the body weight, that is to say, a 75 kilogram person has to bear about 280 kilograms of impact force on his feet. Without the cushioning of the sole, it is easy to cause damage to the foot joints. Severe people will also cause harm to the brain, because the person's brain is semi-solid state, very afraid of vibration, excessive vibration may even cause concussion. If people wear hard-soled shoes, the vibrations are not buffered and their strength is transmitted from the knees and buttocks to the brain through the spine. Especially in strenuous exercise, the vibration force is equivalent to constantly hitting the skull. In the long run, it will inevitably endanger the health of the brain.
Rescue foot SOS
For the swelling of the feet caused by wearing high-heeled shoes and pointed shoes, experts provided RICE treatment plan?
Rest: Give your feet a proper respite and try to reduce the time to wear high heels. It is best to put a pair of soft and comfortable shoes in the office. After work, you can walk to the station with these shoes and let your feet relax.

Compression: Wrap your feet with a cloth to prevent it from swelling.
Elevation: Put your feet up while you are lying down, make it 15-30 centimeters higher than your heart and keep it for tens of minutes so that the blood in your feet can return.
In order to prevent the corn eyes from being pained by friction, an ovoid mat can be made with cloth. In the center of the mat, cut out a hole of a size equal to the size of the corn, and then use a tape to stick to the position of the corn. With such a unique hat, the corns will not continue to get aggravated by the grinding of the shoes.
Selected partners for the feet
In order to stop the foot from â€œadding a new injury if the old patient does not go,â€ the best thing to do is to learn the skills of selecting shoes and find the best match for the foot.
1. The best time to buy shoes is between 3:30 in the afternoon and 6:00 because the feet will be slightly swollen after almost one day of fatigue. At this time, if the shoes you try on fit the feet, you can guarantee that Comfortable in one day. On the contrary, shoes that fit in the morning and that are worn in the afternoon and evening wear will be squeezed due to lower extremity edema.
2. Most people's two feet are different. When trying on new shoes, be sure to pay attention to try them with larger feet. It is best to wear both feet and walk a few steps.
3. Try not to choose heavy shoes because every 1 gram of weight added to the shoe is equivalent to adding dozens of grams to the back of the person's back, making it easier to get tired when you walk.
4. Do not listen to the clerk's misinformation and think that the shoes will get bigger and bigger, so it doesn't matter if it is tight. Remember to buy shoes that are comfortable when you try them, and don't let your feet do the shoes.
