Pregnancy can cause a range of complications for the lower extremities. The weight gain alone places an enormous amount of unexpected pressure on the feet. It’s common for pregnant women to suffer from foot pain, swelling, leg cramps and varicose veins. In addition to weight gain, stretched ligaments in the feet and ankles cause stability problems and flat feet can cause irreparable damage.
Treatment options for foot pain during pregnancy can often be overlooked as other important medical aspects are prioritized. However, many podiatry treatments don’t use pharmacological interventions making them a safe and effective option during pregnancy. Our team of podiatrists can work with you to relieve the most common foot issues experienced during pregnancy, giving mothers-to-be some welcome relief.
