Tips to Walking in High Heels Without Serious Damage to Your Feet

Some tips from a foot care experts to wearing high heels without serious damage.

According to some scientist, the pain of discomfort felt after hours of exercising is known as Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).  The foot pain, which usually subsides within two to three days, is believed by them to caused by tiny tears in the muscle fibers.  This usually happens when the person engages in exercises that involve downhill running and lifting heavy weights.  Another cause is when the person is unaccustomed to the levels of physical training, like running an extra mile than usual.

Walking around in high heels can make you look taller and boost your self confidence, but it could be one of the factors leading to varicose veins.  According to a dermatologist, varicose veins are characterized by abnormally swollen dilated veins due to the congestion and pooling of blood in the enlarged superficial venous system.
