Can high heels lead to osteoarthritis?

Researchers looked at the gait of 14 healthy women. In other words the way they walk. They tested walking with flat shoes, different heights of heels and the speed of walking as well. Seemingly you bend your knees more while walking in heels and also walk at a slower speed.

They did find changes similar to when you have osteoarthritis but they didn’t prove it was because of the heels. What does happen though, you do get corns and callouses-hard skin so I would recommend a good podiatrist. We do have one in the pharmacy so get in touch if you are in the Glasgow area. Just phone 0141 637 6000 for an appointment. He is in the pharmacy on a Tuesday and Saturday.

Talking about osteoarthritis, a drug to treat the condition, voltarol, has been taken off the shelf at pharmacies because it is thought to increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. You may find that your doctor will change your medication and if you ask in the pharmacy we will give you ibuprofen instead.
