Because one woman, Julie Lopez, already addressed this issue.

After unsuccessfully trying to find a pair of shoes that are both stylish and comfortable, Julie Lopez used her background in orthopedic nursing to create Julie Lopez Shoes. The brand’s shoes are designed for women who suffer from bunions, mild arthritis, larger shoe sizes, and wide feet. “Women will be women, and we feel strong and sexy when we’re wearing heels,” she says. “We should be able to feel that way all day and all night.”

Causes of Heel Pain woman dangling comfortable high heels

  • Heel pain is often associated with plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a band of tissues that extends along the bottom of the foot. A rip or tear in this ligament can cause inflammation of the tissue.
  • Achilles tendonitis is another cause of heel pain. Inflammation of the Achilles tendon will cause pain from fractures and muscle tearing. Lack of flexibility is also another symptom.
  • Heel spurs are another cause of pain. When the tissues of the plantar fascia undergo a great deal of stress, it can lead to ligament separation from the heel bone, causing heel spurs.

Why Might Heel Pain Occur?

  • Wearing ill-fitting shoes
  • Wearing non-supportive shoes
  • Weight change
  • Excessive running

Comfortable High Heels and Other Treatment Options

Heel pain should be treated as soon as possible for immediate results. Keeping your feet in a stress free environment will help. If you suffer from Achilles tendonitis or plantar fasciitis, applying ice will reduce the swelling. Stretching before an exercise like running will help the muscles. Using all these tips will help make heel pain a thing of the past.

With advancements in technology and greater knowledge of how muscles and joints work, physical rehabilitation can turn things around dramatically.
