Open heel is better than closed heel

Orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine expert Dr. Manan Vohra explains in his Instagram post, ‘The best way to avoid joint pain is to stop wearing heels. Still, if you want to wear heels, it is important to keep a few things in mind while choosing high heel wear. First of all, know that open to heel is better than closed heel. In closed heels, the thumb and fingers stick together a lot. This puts a lot of stress on the fingers as well as the front part joint. So get a pedicure done and wear open heels.

Block heels are better than stilettos. Wedges are better than block heels. Due to this, the weight of the whole body does not fall in one place. It spreads from the heel towards the thumb. Wear short heels. Wearing heels of 2 inches or less height does not affect the joint.
