Check Out These Hacks To Avoid Leg Cramps When Wearing High Heels

Your cabinet has at least one pair of high-heels that are kept specifically for a special occasion. Standing out in your shoe rack, that expensive high-heel boasts of its ravishing beauty amidst regular comfy footwear. While those shoes stole your heart away, at first sight, this pair might also be creating havoc on your feet from time to time. Do not worry, as here are some of the hacks by which you can prevent leg cramps.

1. Wear heels for a shorter duration

Try to wear heels for as less time as you can. Excessive use leads to a change in body posture. Heels impact calve muscles by shortening them and tend to thicken and tighten your tendons. You may carry comfortable flats or sneakers to the office when you have to walk long distances.

2. Shoes with less height

Considering all the consequences, high-heels create more pressure on your forefoot. So, prefer wearing heels with less height. You can opt for heels which are not more than two inches high. This will provide you with the required comfort and will hurt less.

After a long day, no matter which footwear you opt for, it is important to stretch your muscles. Often sore due to the long duration of wearing heels, your muscles need to release out all the stress. You may pamper yourself with a foot massage or a spa. Moreover, pick up your stretching routine when you can work your thigh muscles, apart from the calve muscles in the morning or evening after work.
