Varicose veins - a disease that is getting younger every year. If in the last century it was mainly elderly people who suffered from it, now 30-year-old patients come to this surgeon with this problem. Among the factors provoking the development of the disease are uncomfortable shoes.
What shoes will be harmful?
There are many models on the shoe market for any season, taste and size. Unfortunately, not all of them are safe. Recognize the "wrong" shoes can be on the following grounds:
- a feeling of squeezing in one or more places - tight shoes pinch the vessels;
- artificial material: it creates a greenhouse effect, disrupting water and heat transfer;
- a flat sole or, on the contrary, a too high heel fixes the foot in an unnatural position;
- a too thin sole will provide you with the opportunity to "enjoy" all the delights of an impassable road and injure your foot.
All these factors inhibit the outflow of blood from the lower extremities . The constant wearing of such shoes can lead to leg diseases.
What shoes contribute to varicose veins?
The greatest danger to the veins is precisely women's shoes . She is more diverse than men's. In addition, unlike men who value convenience above all else, girls are often ready to sacrifice comfort in order to arouse the admiring glances of men and the envy of their friends, flaunting stunning trendy shoes from the new collection.
The fact is that with a heel height of more than 7 cm, almost all the load falls on the toe, and on the foot under the fingers there are seals - corns, and the ankle muscles are greatly stretched. The load on the veins increases many times, and the blood stagnates. Therefore, stilettos or sandals can be worn for a short time and not every day.
Very narrow toe shoes
In this case, blood supply to the extremities practically ceases, inflammatory processes are initiated. Add to this friction, and get a whole medical “bouquet”: calluses, numbness, swelling and even cramps .
These light and comfortable “slippers” on an absolutely flat and very thin sole, even without a hint of a block repeating the bend of the foot. Unfortunately, they do not dampen movements and do not protect the foot .
The gait in this case becomes "shuffling", the fingers are deformed . Another minus of such a sole is the heel is below the rest of the foot, it accounts for the lion's share of the weight of the whole body. Because of this, the calf muscles are in an endless unpleasant tone, which also does not contribute to unhindered blood flow.
Sandals with harnesses
The danger of such shoes is, first of all, in its instability . Instability provokes a loss of balance and the risk of tucking the leg and tearing the ligaments. But that's not all. The legs are always tense, which interferes with the free circulation of blood.
