As chiropractors who analyze and treat the feet on a daily basis, we get exposed to tons of people so it is very easy to observe the types and styles of shoes they are wearing.
We know that patients feel their best and get better results from their chiropractic care when their bodies are properly supported through custom stabilization. However, many popular women’s shoe styles don’t comfortably accommodate custom orthotics due to their tight-fitting, low-profile designs. For the purposes of this discussion, I want to hit on a topic that can be a sore spot, especially for female patients. This has to do with wearing “high heels”.
