High Heels Alert

Did you know that wearing high heels regularly could possibly trigger Urinary Tract Infections? Surprised? I was too when I came upon the article in First magazine. It's hard to believe that it could be possible.

"Regularly wearing heels exaggerates the natural forward tilt of the pelvis. This creates pressure on sensory nerves in the lower spine, which can prevent the bladder from emptying completely and thus increase a woman's odds of developing a UTI."

If you really need to wear high heels regularly, it would be best to choose 2 inches or lesser heels to reduce the risk. The author suggests to perform a self-check in the mirror, if the arch of the back becomes more pronounce after slipping on your pumps, swap the shoes for flats or lower heels.

Thank you for this info!! OH my, I honestly didn't know. I've had UTIs in the past and I've also thought it was because I didn't drink enough water.

But dang it! I love my high heels! :(
