Did Victoria Beckham’s Penchant For High Heels During Pregnancy Cause Her Slipped Disc?

By  | 

Fashionista, mother, and generally all around famous for being famous Victoria Beckham has been recovering in her Malibu home — and not from the birth of Harper Seven. Posh has apparently “slipped a disc” or developed a herniated disc according to Daily Mail, and the cause may her predilection for big high heels.

Daily Mail reports:

Friends of the star said that wearing high heels in pregnancy may have led to the slipped disc.

She appeared at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton while expecting wearing towering five-inch Christian Louboutin heels.

Many doctors warn against wearing high heels in pregnancy as they can put excessive strain on the spine.

Victoria’s Caesarean – her fourth -  is then thought to have placed her back under further pressure.

Since her diagnosis, Victoria has been photographed as being back to her old size but with one absent trademark — her massive high heels. A slender post-baby Victoria has been spotted running around in flats per doctor’s orders. Victoria has yet to confirm the reason for her herniated disc and she is currently being overseen by specialists. The mother of four cannot walk far, bend over, or do any lifting.

Such modifications to Victoria’s signature style will no doubt garner even more attention when she attends NYC’s Fashion Week in September to debut her Spring/Summer 2012 collection.
