A new study has shown that not taking a bath is not only a waste of time and energy, it can actually cause a significant amount of pain to your body.
According to a study published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior, people who have to take baths with bare feet have significantly higher levels of pain, stiffness, and swelling than those who wear ankle pads or other similar protection.
The study, which was conducted by researchers at the University of Southern California, found that, on average, people using the bathtub for more than a minute with bare legs were exposed to more than 3,000 pain points.
The researchers went on to describe how the study’s results could potentially have implications for healthcare providers who are concerned about the impact of bare feet on healthcare workers.
In addition to the possible psychological impact of wearing bare feet for extended periods of time, the study found that wearing a fitted heel could lead to the “permanent rupture” of a ligament in the lower leg that could lead the wearer to amputate their leg.
This is especially alarming as this ligament is one of the main muscles that is often lost in people with arthritis or other joint diseases.
So, if you’re looking to get out and exercise and do a lot of stretching, this study shows you should definitely consider wearing a heel, even if it’s only for a few minutes at a time, as it could lead you to more pain, strain, and potentially amputation.
It also suggests that wearing the heel may not be such a bad idea in certain instances.
For example, the researchers found that people who wore a fitted boot had significantly lower levels of swelling and pain than those wearing a bare-footed boot.
While the study does not definitively say that wearing shoes with a fitted ankle is worse than wearing shoes without a fitted toe, it does point to the fact that wearing footwear that does not conform to the human foot is likely to cause injury.
This study is a step in the right direction for the healthcare industry as we continue to evolve the way we treat people with orthopedic injuries.
The next steps for the study will be to find out more about the nature of pain that people experience with the shoes, and to find ways to mitigate the impact that wearing bare-foot footwear can have on healthcare providers and patients.
In the meantime, if a person has been diagnosed with a foot injury and is considering wearing a pair of shoes, the research study recommends that the healthcare professional consider wearing ankle pads to minimize pain and swelling, as the presence of these pads may reduce the risk of injury.
