“A lot of women are in high heel shoes and they come back down. They’re like ‘Oh, my heel hurts, but I’m so comfortable in these shoes. It’s the only shoes I’m comfortable in....’ That’s that problem. When you’re in that short achilles state, when that heel is elevated, right? That tendon… so it’s new normal is nice and short. If you spend seven, eight hours a day in those types of shoes, it’s going to add up.” - Dr. Raafae Hussain [18:39]
“The goal is try to catch these as early as possible because the neglected ones are much harder to fix.” - Dr. Damien Dauphinee [27:25]
