Dr. Sadrieh showing The Cinderella Procedure on The Doctors Show Warning: graphic footage of surgery
Watching the woman in the video jamming her foot into her designer shoes is painful to witness. As I wrote in a post earlier this year, regularly wearing high heels
- alters the anatomy of the calf muscles and tendons;
- can cause tripping and falling, which can lead to ankle sprains and breaks;
- may create foot problems like bunions, hammertoes, and nerve damage;
- puts stress on the back and knees;
- and causes Haglund’s deformity, otherwise known as “pump bump,” that occurs when straps of high heeled shoes dig into the tissue around the Achilles tendon.
We can’t escape the fact that high heels are considered sexy… and sex sells. But, really, why do women subject themselves to this torture? I admit to having a few pairs of high heels myself, although I rarely venture out in them. I can’t imagine wearing shoes that are too narrow or squeeze my toes. Personally, I have to feel good to look good.
I am certainly not in a position to judge other people… and we do live in a free society. I just don’t understand it.
