If you need to carry out a task that involves lots of squatting, do not wear skinny jeans, doctors have advised. They have found that squatting in this type of clothing for long periods of time may damage muscle and nerve fibres in the legs. She explained that the day before, she had been helping a relative to move house and this had involved lots of squatting while emptying cupboards. The woman said she had been wearing skinny jeans and that these had felt increasingly tight and uncomfortable throughout the day. In the evening, her feet felt numb and she found it hard to walk.
LONDON — A year-old woman in Australia was hospitalized after squatting for several hours while wearing tight-fitting denims, doctors say. The woman spent four days in hospital after after experiencing muscle damage, swelling, and nerve blockages in her legs. The patient, who was not identified, spent most of the previous day helping someone move, squatting for long periods while emptying cupboards. Clad in skinny jeans, the woman said they felt increasingly tight and her feet were numb as she walked home, making her trip and fall. Unable to get up, she spent several hours stranded outside before getting to the hospital. Kimber and colleagues published a report about the case online Monday in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. Kimber said tight jeans have previously been reported to cause nerve lesions in the groin but not the kind of nerve problems in the lower leg and severe muscle damage they saw. He said squatting compressed the nerves in the lower leg, reducing the blood supply to the calf muscles and that the skinny jeans worsened the problem. After being treated for four days — and having her jeans cut off — the woman still had some weakness in her legs but walked out of the hospital and later recovered fully.
