Skechers Shape-ups Can Cause a Hip Dislocation Injury

Since being introduced in 2009, Shape-ups have been touted by Skechers as a shoe that will help wearers improve muscle tone and strength. More recently however, the toning shoes have been heavily scrutinized. Many medical and fitness experts agree that Shape-ups rocker bottom sole increases the risk of fall-related injuries and can also cause severe alignment issues, which could lead to hip dislocation.

Hip Dislocation Complications

When the head of the thighbone slips out of the hipbone socket, severe pain and immobility typically result. Some patients also experience loss of sensation near the ankle and foot when dislocating a hip. Most hip dislocation patients can expect to have a two to three month recovery (if a full recovery is possible), and many will have to undergo surgery to move the bone back into place. Some of the long-term complications associated with hip dislocation, include bone tissue death, joint arthritis, and chronic pain.
