Lucky are the women who are naturally tall. Tall looks compliment the beauty of body. Wearing heels is one option for looking tall. However heels are not preferred only because they make you look tall. Heels are now available in various patterns matching the designs of a variety of outfits. Wearing heels make women look more stylish, confident and tall, but it can also cause back pain. There are various disadvantages of wearing heels.

Lower Back Pain

Wearing heels causes entire pressure of body to fall on the lower back. This pressure falling on the lower back can cause back pain.

Shortened Achilles Tendon

This might be one of the more worrying side effects of wearing heels: According to Live Science, women who wear heels over a long period of their lives actually shorten their Achilles tendon. With the heel in the lifted position, heels can actually create a physiologically change in the muscles and tendons around the ankles. That means, when barefoot or wearing flats and shoes that cause the heel to reach the ground, the wearer can feel immense pain and stretching.

Ingrown Toenails

Most heels have a pointy or almond-shaped toe, despite the fact that the end of your foot is actually more square. And it’s the biggest and littlest toes that take a lot of the pressure as they press against the sides and the end of the shoe.

High heels cause your feet to slide down and crush your toes, leading to ingrown toenails. Ingrown toenails occur when the side of your toenail starts growing into your flesh, and it can be seriously painful.
