Why and How Orthotics Help Pregnant Women

As the baby develops, a woman’s structure begins to deform, and more pressure develops on the feet in different areas. Customized orthotics, which are prescription medical devices, can help balance a woman’s structure throughout the different phases of her pregnancy.

Orthotics can help relieve pressure in a pregnant woman’s feet, which translates into the rest of the spine, ankles, knees, hips, lower back, and even back to the neck. As the body begins to change, orthotics will help improve her balance, relieve her pain,
and help her hold the adjustments between visits.

Balancing Structure

At our practice, we use The Mother Nurture™ Custom Orthotics System by Foot Levelers, the first and only custom stabilization made only for pregnant women. The multi-phase system supports moms-to-be during the unique stages of their pregnancies.

  • Trimester Two Orthotics: Offering firm, flexible, and light correction to counteract arch damage.
  • Trimester Three Orthotics: Providing weight-bearing support with firmer levels of correction for the forward-shifted center of gravity.
  • Postpartum Orthotics: Providing support for pelvic girdle instability with enhanced comfort and cushioned heel for shock absorption.

Another benefit of the orthotics is they can be moved between shoes.

The Importance of Chiropractic Care

It’s crucial to get adjusted while you’re pregnant, if you’d like to enjoy an easier, pain-free pregnancy, and smoother labor and delivery. Chiropractic can also reduce the chance of your baby turning into a breech position. Maintaining proper alignment, mobility, and adaptability is critical for a healthy pregnancy.
