https://www.footankle.com/heel-pain-center/heel-pain-pregnancy/ Seattle podiatrist Larry Huppin will discuss how pregnant women can prevent and/or treat foot pain and swelling during their pregnancies. Most pregnant women will develop swollen and painful feet at some time during their pregnancy. Weight gain during pregnancy, loosening of ligaments due to hormonal changes and fluid retention all can lead to foot pain and discomfort. Most of these problems are easily treated and prevented with proper care.
Many women develop flattening of the feet during pregnancy. This can lead to a number of issues including discomfort while walking, arch pain, shin pain, knee pain, hip pain and back pain.
In this video Dr. Huppin will provide easy to follow instructions on how to avoid these problems. He will discuss wearing arch supports and choosing stable shoes. Learn about proper pregnancy footwear. When you are not in shoes, be sure to opt for sandals or slippers that offer exceptional arch support. To avoid foot pain, you should never go barefoot while you are pregnant any time you are on your feet.
If you are in the Seattle area and have foot pain associated with pregnancy, make an appointment to see Dr. Huppin.
