How Safe are Stilettos?

Strippers work gruelling hours in the clubs and all perched on top of a pair of towering heels. Wearing high heels around 15 centimetres or higher has been compared to walking on stilts or dancing on ballet pointe shoes. Yowch!

Not only is the risk of falling flat on your rear a concern, there are also long term foot complications that can arise. Chiropractors and Podiatrists recommend that you stay in your stilettos for no more than 20 minutes at a time to avoid permanent damage.

The main areas that stilettos refer injuries and pain include the back, hips and knees, shins, balls of the feet and the toes. It is imperative to look after the health of your feet on a daily basis if you wear heels everyday. Soak them in a warm tub of water with Epsom salts and massage with moisturizer and a few drops of Peppermint oil afterwards.

I still have lower back pain, Patella Tracking Dysfunction in my left knee and a funky right big toe from my time spent in the clubs shaking my booty in stilettos. Don't let it happen to you! Lower the height of your heels if possible and try to stay off your feet if you are doing a shift in the strip club. Holding onto a pole and stabilizing yourself by touching the ceiling can also relieve the pressure on your feet. Additionally, do more chair work and take regular breaks in the dressing rooms to massage and liberate your footsies!
