Much has been said about the danger of high heels for the ankles. However, it is not merely those types of shoes that put foot health at risk. In the past few days, orthopedic doctors at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York explained that wearing flip-flops for long periods of time can cause pain and injury to the feet.
Why? Simple, when using a type of open footwear such as beach sandals, more pressure is applied to the toe area to be able to wear them, the doctors explain. This causes that, after having used them for several hours, you feel pain in the sole of the foot as well as in the fingers.
Although they are comfortable shoes to spend these hot days, you must be careful because you can suffer cuts, a blow or even small fractures in the feet. Likewise, specialists reveal that you can suffer back, leg or waist ailments if you walk on a surface such as concrete. If you suffer a cut, remember to wash the area well with soap and water, and apply antibiotic. Enjoy the summer with the proper care.
