High heels are not as bad for women’s health as it has been widely suggested.
According to Italian urologist and self-professed lover of sexy shoes, Dr. Maria Angela Cerruto, a nicely-heeled shoe not only attracts a man, it may also keep him.
Cerruto, a urologist at the University of Verona, Italy, was relaying to BBC, the findings of her study on 66 women under 50.
She said those who held their foot at a 15-degree angle to the ground (the equivalent of a 3-inch heel) had as good a posture as those who wore flat shoes, and importantly, reveal less electrical activity in their pelvic muscles — suggesting the muscles were more at rest with higher heels — therefore enhancing their strength and ability to contract.
This should be wonderful news to women who have a hard time exercising or practising the Kegels exercise (a popular activity prescribed for strengthening of the pelvic muscles).
The pelvic floor muscles are important in providing support for pelvic organs which comprises, the bladder, intestines and the uterus in females, besides serving sexual performance and pleasure. This is crucial, as pregnancy, childbirth and old age often weaken the muscles.
“Women often have difficulty in carrying out the right exercises for the pelvic zone and wearing heels could be the solution,” she said.
Sadly, this excludes stilettos despite their sex appeal, because regular use of heels higher than three inches can harm one’s back.
So, ladies, fish out those heels you have abandoned, and start rocking them!
