It’s vital as your body changes during pregnancy to pay special attention to your feet. This is because your feet will have to cope with increased pressures, a decrease in stability as well as development of laxity within your joints.
Things you can do to assist during this period of time includes:
Melbourne Sports Podiatry ensures if you are keen to return to an active lifestyle after birth that you are given every chance too. Hence we assist your lower limb strength and biomechanics during your pregnancy by using one or all off the following options: soft insoles, lower limb massage and safe strength work.
After pregnancy it’s common for you and other mums to feel a disconnect between your body and movement. This is primarily because of ligamentous laxity which occurs as result of a dramatically increased level of progesterone during pregnancy as well as the secretion of a hormone called relaxin which remodells collagen to increase the elasticity and relaxation of muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Hypermobility through lax ligaments leads to poor activation of the muscles protecting joints in the foot, ankle, leg and pelvis. Thus its vital to start training your movement patterns as quick as possible once the birth of the baby has occurred.
Melbourne Sports Podiatry offers new mothers an opportunity to safely return back to exercise with clear and specific treatment programs to assist strong balanced movement.
