Foot pain is one of the many discomforts women put up with while pregnant. There are a number of factors that contribute to foot pain during and after pregnancy. Many women suffer from a swelling of their feet known as edema. Weight gain is also a common factor, which can cause the feet to flatten and widen and stay that way after pregnancy. You may find that after pregnancy, your shoes and insoles no longer fit your feet.
What can I do to ease foot pain after pregnancy?
Being physically active, elevating your feet, and making sure to rest often can all help deal with the foot pain you experience after pregnancy. However, custom orthotics are highly recommended as the best way to deal with the changes in your feet. Here are a few reasons why:
- They’re customized to your feet — The off-the-shelf insoles you bought before you were pregnant likely don’t fit anymore. Custom orthotics take the guesswork out of choosing the right insoles. A mold of your feet is used to create custom insoles that ensure a perfect fit and can be adjusted until they fit just right.
- They’re cost effective — Off-the-shelf insoles typically last about six months, whereas orthotics can last for up to five years. In the long run, it is more cost effective to invest in custom orthotics that will not need to be replaced for a long time, saving you the worry of having to replace them often.
- They can help relieve pain — Improper footwear and lack of support can not only cause foot pain, but leg and back pain as well. Poor posture and gait can further aggravate this pain. Custom orthotics can address the changes in your foot shape and correct your gait, potentially leaving you without uncomfortable pain in your lower body.
