High Heels:  The Known and Less Known Dangers and How to Avoid Them

High Heels 1

It is no secret that the world of fashion condemns any footwear that does not have a semblance of a heel. From Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City to the thousand of other style icons today, if you want to be in, you must don the stiletto.

But what happens when the medical world scorns this choice and gives a thousand viable reasons why you should avoid the highly damaging practice of walking around on socially appropriate stilts?

Dr. Jose Loor, owner and founder of DeLoor Medical, and a practicing surgical podiatrist has a lot to say on this topic. In his practice he has found that wearing high heels lead his patients to experience ankle trauma, lateral ankle instability, osteochondral fractures, bunions, and it is the leading cause of the under-diagnosed chip fractures (a subject covered in an earlier article).

Ever walked down the street, feeling on point when suddenly your ankle gave out, and you were forced to walk it off with burning cheeks, unsure of what hurts more, your ankle or your pride? That is, unfortunately, according to Dr. Loor, a very common occurrence as well as a strong indication of an increase in ankle instability.

When asked what we could do as a compromise because let’s face it, losing our heel wearing privilege is out of the question in this day and age, Dr. Loor advised the following:

“When wearing high heels, you are mainly putting a large amount of stress on the peroneal nerve. Consequently, to avoid damage, you should do peroneal strengthening exercises.”


Dr. Loor works with physical therapists to target this exact problem as well as shows his patients this preventative measure as a part of his treatment plan. He strongly advises seeking professional medical intervention before any of the possible damage can occur.

Ankle Injury: The Dangers of a Misdiagnosed Ankle Sprain

Typically, podiatrists focus on injuries and conditions that have to do with the feet, a complex part of our body that contains 28 bones, while shying away from the ankle, also included in their specialty, which holds three vital bones, important to our day to day routine.

Dr. Jose Loor, the owner, and founder of DeLoor Medical chose to specialize in ankle injury and trauma. Inspired by a need to improve his technique and obtain more insight on treatment of ankle injuries, a field he deems ‘mysterious’ in the realm of podiatric medicine, he mentored and obtained training from various fields including orthopedic surgeons, radiology imaging professionals, and the military, to advance himself in the area of ankle treatments.

Dr. Loor stated that one of the most common issues he sees in ankle treatment in his practice is an under-diagnosed chip fracture of the ankle, secondary to the common ankle sprain.

“Very often it is neglected because doctors focus their attention on the ligament,” Dr. Loor explains. While physicians diagnose based on the ligament, missing the chip fracture can cause serious consequences for the patient.

“If left untreated, the fracture can lead to traumatic arthritis and complex regional pain syndrome,” Dr. Loor warns.

A possible treatment for this condition, he cites, is performing minimally invasive arthroscopy, which Dr. Loor offers to his patients.
