Could my neck pain be from wearing heels?

The answer is YES. Not only can high heels cause foot and ankle injury, they could also cause pain in the knees, hips, back and neck. Walking with severely lifted heels significantly alters your center of gravity, putting it more forward than it should be. Multiple studies have shown that due to this change, your neck muscles are contracting more to stabilize your head and neck. In other words, high heels can OVERWORK your neck muscles and cause them to strain.
Long story short, wearing high heels completely changes the way you walk and stand. We recommend you employ them for short periods of time only and limit to special events. If you choose to wear high heels a lower heel would help. Also using a block heel instead of stiletto makes a bigger difference than you think. Or even better, skip them all together!
