Currently, many orthopedists receive visits by athletes, seniors and young women who go to them for pain in the heels and ankles. These people are usually victims of their penchant for fashion shoes with high heels or very thin needle and the damage they cause is the Achilles tendon, named after the legendary Greek hero, who was invulnerable to any pain, at least this part of the foot, where a crush cost him his life.

A healthy foot is based on three points, one located behind the heel bone powerful where it is collected and the main weight on the front foot, the other two points are at the end of the first and fifth metatarsal. But in the deformed foot pressure is shifted to other places and causes severe pain and discomfort.
Achilles tendons are very sensitive and strong, carry much weight and sometimes abused when they react with pain and inflammation.

This communicates the tendon of the peroneal muscles and the calcaneus, bone that holds that we can tip back and down the foot. Unlike other tendons, the Achilles lacks a protective layer, which is particularly prone to suffer wounds and inflammation, blows in this part are very painful and very few people have escaped from an upstairs or being hit by of the super market carts or strollers, without feeling a sharp pain that is reacting with anger and moodiness.

Shoes with high heels and / or needle hurt this particular tendon, because the transmission of muscle tension works only when the tendon is taut and the position of high heels that force significantly reduced the distance between the starting point tendon in the calcaneus and fibula, so that the transmission of force with the muscle relaxed is very difficult.
To strain the tendon, the peroneal muscle performs an additional upward movement on its further ligament which causes pain in the fibula in the strength of the peroneal muscle too.

When using high heels and / or needle often shortens the tendon at the point of departure to the muscle and excess tissue is disappearing bit by bit, until it finally reaches a length that does not require the additional movement.
In the worst cases this can lead to a permanent reduction of the tendon, making it impossible to wear shoes with low heels and when they do, the pain in the tendon and heel of the foot are exacerbated by inflammation of the tissue, thus In extreme cases, deformed feet, and in these cases leveling with high heels, is as annoying as inelegant.
