So Im only 33 but was a dancer for almost 13 years so was in heels alot. Not always the 6" ones but at least 4". I've recently moved onto waitressing and am in flats but on my feel all the time. I've recently started to "creak" a lot. My knees and ankles. Is this from damage from being on my feet all these years? I eat healthy and drink lots of milk. Anyone else have advice or same thing going on?? TIA

Look to lubricate your joints with foods like Salmon, Flax Seeds, Walnuts and Green Leafy vege's like Spinach and Kale. Supplements like Fish Oils, Flax Oil, Mixed Tocopherols (4 Based Vit-E) and Cholecalciferol ( Natural Vit-D) and see how you feel in 30 days.

My parents used to take the organic apple cider vinegar and some honey and mix it with water. It's supposed to help with the creaking.
I like the vinegar and water together and drink it a lot because I like the taste of it. I skip the honey. I think I creak some but not a whole lot.

LOL! Me, too. That's why I started dancing! Anyway, after being in heels, I am surprised flats don't bother you more - amen! If you're on your feet, as a waitress, you definitely need some really good sturdy shoes. When I am working, I pull out my ugly old Clinic 411 - I get teased, but my legs don't ache!

Heels are really hard on your back and your legs. Try calcium with equal amounts of magnesium and some Vitamin D to go with it. Glucosimine is also great. If you're having problems already, you best get started because the older you get, the worse it becomes.

I have creaked for at least ten years. Not as badly these days, though. I am 34.
