High heels a painfully low point for hundreds
from The Age
Victorian hospitals treated 236 women and four men who injured themselves while stumbling or falling from high heels, new data shows, with the carnage highest over summer months. A study led by Melbourne podiatrist Cylie Williams found Sunday mornings were the busiest time for patients presenting to Victorian emergency departments with injuries caused by wearing high heels. Injuries included sprains to wrists, hands, ankles and knees and fractures to the legs and feet, as well as minor lacerations to the face.
