from Lower Extremity Review
Long-term wear of high-heeled shoes leads to significant alterations in ankle range of motion and muscle strength, according to researchers from the Republic of Korea. Investigators from Korea University in Seoul analyzed barefoot ankle mechanics in 10 young women who reported that they wore high-heeled shoes regularly (at least three days a week for the previous six months) and 10 young women who wore high heels less frequently.
