High heels could cause crisis levels of arthritis

10th June 2011

Experts have warned that women wearing high heels could cause crisis levels of arthritis in the UK.

A poll by The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists found a quarter of women wear high heels every day or frequently, with the society fearing they are increasing their risk of getting the debilitating condition. High heels affect body posture, placing more pressure on foot, ankle and knee joints which can cause stress to the cartilage and lead to the onset of osteoarthritis.
