Shoe designers do not seem to be particularly concerned with how their footwear feels when worn. From a certain point of view, this makes sense. When you are looking to buy new high heels, your first sensory experience with them is visual. You see those cute shoes and imagine how they will look on your feet. In that moment, you are not thinking about foot pain or any discomfort they might bring. Well, shoe designers may not consider how your feet feel, but we do!
Dallas Podiatry Works is always here to help you with any foot or ankle condition you may encounter, but we are also able to provide proactive care! Avoid the pain that comes with wearing high heels by coming in for a Loub Job. These simple dermal injections can make it more comfortable for you to wear stylish footwear for formal occasions.
Our office has two FDA-approved, biodegradable fillers (Sculptra and Juvaderm) that can be used. Typically, we use Juvaderm first to give immediate relief, since it is not as long-lasting. If the results are satisfactory, we will likely recommend Sculptra, which provides cushioning for an extended period.
Even with your proactive approach for eliminating foot pain, keep in mind that there are still a variety of conditions that you may experience as a result of wearing high heels. A Loub job may help to avoid metatarsalgia (pain in the forefoot), but you are still at risk of pump bumps, Achilles tendon damage, hammertoes, and ankle injuries. To avoid these conditions, limit the amount of time you spend wearing pumps or stilettos.
