Pregnancy can be an amazing time in any woman's life but can also result in many changes to one's body including varicose veins, swelling in your hands, feet, legs, and arms, numbness, tingling, and burning in your extremities.
Pregnancy can also result in changes in foot size, shoe gear wear and tightness of the calf muscles due to the ever constantly changing position of the mom-to-be's hip position.
Many women suffer at home or are at a loss as to where to turn for help with navigating their nine months of pregnancy outside of their OBGYN's office. Your local podiatrist can help!
We can focus on putting your feet in a better position with orthotics, stretching you out at home with simple devices or physical therapy, discuss the benefit of compression stockings and safe treatment for you and your baby when it comes to nerve pain occurring during and after your pregnancy. We also work closely with your OBGYN in treating other common Podiatric complaints (ingrown toenails, athlete's foot, warts, fractures, and sprains) during your pregnancy.
Make an appointment today at one of our offices and speak with one of our podiatrists who cannot only empathize with your symptoms but help you find a solution to make you more comfortable.
