We examined 16 healthy women, 21 to 23 years of age, who stood unilaterally on the right foot with the heel elevated 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and 40 mm. We measured height of the medial longitudinal arch, rearfoot pronation calf-to-calcaneus angle , displacement of center of pressure under the foot during ten seconds, and mean position of the center of pressure during those ten seconds. Elevating the heel raised the medial longitudinal arch, reduced rearfoot pronation, increased length of displacement of the center of pressure, and brought the mean center of pressure forward and medially. In feet that initially had strong rearfoot pronation, presence of an initially high medial longitudinal arch was associated with a greater curtailment of rearfoot pronation when the heel was elevated than if the arch was not initially high. These results suggest that elevating the heel of a shoe can help reduce the signs of a flat foot, but the accompanying decrease in balance stability and shift of pressure toward the first metatarsal head makes the use of elevated heels questionable as a therapeutic measure.

Some women complain of low back pain that they believe is due to wearing high-heeled shoes, and some clinicians seem to think the reason is that high-heeled shoes cause increased lumbar lordosis. This article examines Internet information aimed at the general public and presents a literature review of available research in this area. The keywords high heels and high-heeled shoes , combined with the words lumbar , lordosis , and pelvic tilt , were used in an Internet search of Ask. There are many Internet sites that support the belief that high-heeled shoes cause increased lordosis. However, published research for this topic mostly does not support this belief; but some mixed results, small subject groups, and questionable methods have left the issue unclear. It appears that some health care providers are offering advice about the effect of high-heeled shoes on lumbar lordosis that conflicts with most published research. However, the prevalence of such advice is unknown; and the published research is equivocal.

The foot pressure ratio and static balance scores during standing were measured using a SpaceBalance 3D system. Under the 3 conditions tested, the static balance score was higher for the revised high-heeled shoes than for the general high-heeled shoes, but this difference was not statistically significant. High-heeled shoes HHSs are defined as shoes in which the heel is higher than the forepart. HHSs often also include a narrow toe box, rigid heel cap, and curved plantar region, all of which interfere with natural foot motion. HHSs have been worn for several centuries 1 , and despite numerous cautions against their use, they remain extremely popular.

Introduction Wearing high-heel shoes has become a habit among women of the present era [ 1 ]. Increase in heel height affects the body mass and changes the center of gravity which ultimately brings the compensatory postural changes, including the change in knee alignment [ 3 ].
