Understanding the Effects of Dress Shoes powered by Lansdowne Podiatry

December 15, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

According to the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society, women are nine times more likely than men to develop a foot problem due to ill-fitting shoes

High heels and pumps are a popular staple in many women’s wardrobes as a way to add style, glamour, and even height. However, high-heeled shoes lead to a slew of foot, knee, and back problems, such as shortened calf muscles and toe deformities. They can also cause women to alter the way they walk, making them imbalanced and more susceptible to sprained ankles and injuries from falls. Despite the discomforts most women experience while wearing high heels, they continue to wear them, day after day, which compounds the problems that result from this type of footwear. Men’s dress shoes are not as problematic, but there are still several things to consider in this category when it comes to general health and wellness.

On December 15th, learn how to minimize foot related issues stemming from high heels, pumps, and general dress shoes by joining Dr. Monique Renee Muronda (Rolle) of Lansdowne Podiatry for a clinic focusing on how to manage and minimize the negative effects of dress related footwear.

This will be an interactive session with the opportunity for questions and comments.

Seating is limited, so please RSVP early to guarantee your spot.
