Can patients with back pain wear high heels?

After people wear high heels (more than 4 cm), because of the enhanced anterior tilt of the pelvis, the gravity line through the back of the pelvis, so that the waist to support the weight and increase the burden, followed by posterior extension enhancement, long-term persistence, will be due to excessive contraction of the lumbar back muscle and low back pain. For every 1 cm increase in heel height, the lumbar back extension and contraction of the lumbar back muscles will increase exponentially, and the greater the chance of low back pain. It is recommended to choose a heel height of about 3 cm is more appropriate.
