Party Feet!

Written By Anuj Soni 15 Jan 2019
Party Feet!

Our team have just been to their Christmas ‘do’ this week and the next couple of weeks will no doubt bring more festivities including New Year celebrations for some.
This got me thinking that all that festive cheer might not be so conducive for cheerful feet, especially where parties, dressy shoes and lots of walking or standing in high heels might be on the menu – and perhaps a spot of dancing?
I have asked our podiatrists to provide some advice for all the party revellers out there.
Here is what they came up with:

● Keep high heels for special occasions.
● Save backless high-heeled shoes for evening glamour. Backless shoes force your toes to claw as you walk, straining muscles if worn over a long period
● Calf stretches to help keep feet supple and keep a good range of movement. To stretch your calf and heel, stand facing a wall with feet hip width apart and slightly bent at the knee. Take one step forwards, and using your arms to lean against the wall, keep your leg in front bent and the leg behind straight. Both feet should be flat on the ground. Lean in towards the wall, as you do, you should feel your muscles stretching in your calf and heel. Hold for about 20 seconds and slowly returns to a standing position. Do this with each leg about 5 times
● Vary shoe types and heel heights from day to day, one-day wearing low heels, and the next day slightly higher heels. For everyday use, keep high heels to about 4cm
● If you are in pain which persists, this is not normal and we suggest seeking professional advice. Call City Foothealth on 02076283359
