Pregnancy comes with many changes to a woman’s body – some cause temporary discomfort while others can have lasting effects. If you’re experiencing foot pain while pregnant in Besthesda, MD you don’t have to just put up with it for a while. It’s important to see Dr. Ross, your favorite Bethesda, MD podiatrist to correct any problems with your foot structure and make sure you’re pain-free.
Many of my female patients make their first visit to our Bethesda podiatry office when they are pregnant. Women can experience lots of different foot problems during pregnancy because of the rapid changes to your body. As your body grows to accommodate your baby bump, your center of gravity may shift causing balance issues or strain on muscles and ligaments. At The Podiatry Center, we specialize in caring for women’s feet so we can quickly and accurately find the root cause of your pain and find the solution.
Common Causes Of Foot Pain During Pregnancy
- Swollen achy feet
- Pain from tight shoes
- Plantar fasciitis from muscle imbalances as your baby grows
- Achilles tendinitis from over-pronation
