There is more than one reason why you might want to wear heel lifts. Adjustable heel lifts can be used for two functions that include;
- Adjusting the height of one heel to correct leg length discrepancies
- Adjusting the height on both heel lifts to increase height.
For height increase purposes heel lifts can be a perfect solution and far better than conventional high heels and elevator shoes designed to make you taller. This is because heel lifts are so comfortable to wear and instead of placing your foot and heel in a damaging and unnatural position that increases risk of strain and injury to the foot heel lifts instead.
Some people may not even wear heel lifts for height increase or for correcting leg length discrepancy but start wearing these lifts to help with the comfort of their shoes, as many types of heel lifts can off the foot comfort and support that ordinary shoes and insoles cannot. This is because orthotic technology has been incorporated into the heel lifts helping better support the feet more naturally whilst also taking strain and pressure off the foot. The gel that the heel lifts are made out of also acts as a shock absorber . Persistent shocks however small can overtime causes tissue damage to your tendons not only in your feet but also in your knees and legs. This can lead to tendonitis of the tendons, If left untreated it may get worse and can cause severe pain.
Heel lifts are also good at correcting biomechanical imbalances resulting in less strain and stress on the muscles and ligaments not only that a pair of lifts can also help improve balance as the gel molds to the shape of your foot and helps keep you stable.
These are just some of the great benefits of wearing heel lifts!
