KARL LOCKETT, SPORTS PODIATRIST, SYDNEY HEEL PAIN
Wearing high heels strains the calf and Achilles tendon, so I recommend stretching your calf muscles daily, as well as opting for a heel with a wider base. While you’re out, wear gel liners in your shoes to support the balls of your feet, and consider sitting down for 15 to 20 minutes every two hours to relieve your legs. Sports drinks contain sodium, magnesium and potassium – great after workouts and for hangovers, but they can also help replenish and relax your calf muscles and the muscles in your feet.
