Have you noticed your shoes don’t fit anymore? Relaxin also affects the ligaments in the feet. The foot has 26 moveable bones that work together to serve as your body’s primary shock absorber. When the ligaments in the feet stretch, the arch may collapse leading to over pronation, plantar fasciitis (heel pain), foot pain and an increase in shoe size.
Soft tissue release, gentle Chiropractic adjustment s of the spine and feet (that’s right, foot adjustments!!!!), core stabilization exercises, and custom orthotics are an extremely safe and effective way to treat low back pain, pelvic pain and foot pain during pregnancy without the use of medications that may be harmful to you and your baby.
