Changed the stress: Wearing heels over a prolonged period of time creates a muscle/tendon memory pattern- meaning these soft tissues are used to being in a certain position. Then, when you change to flats, you have put these tissues in a new and uncomfortable position. One example is the Achilles tendon area. When wearing heels, you take tension off the tendon/calf muscles, and then going to flats stretches these. ...Read more

My ankles go inwards when I walk because I'm tall but when I wear good shoes they get better is there any exercises I can do to fix them??

It has nothing: To do with your height. Sounds like you pronate. I have seen some therapists state that excercise (of post tibial tendon) can help strengthen arch. I am not sure if I believe that. I have not seen it personally. Another option may be to see a doctor who can put a device into your foot to hold up your arch. Sometimes referred to as subtalar arthroeresis. ...Read more
