Postpartum Foot Pain / Plantar Fasciitis

Posted by Jesse Lillejord on
Foot / heel pain is common postpartum because the relaxin that remains in the body [ for up to one year! ] keeps the ligaments of the foot loose and "unstable". Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It can cause a stabbing pain that shows up early in the morning. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.
Below are some options to combat postpartum foot pain: 
- calf massage 
- arch stripping + foot adjustments 
- tennis ball + frozen water ball foot massage 
- heel + calf stretch on the wall 
**the adjusting is only done in the clinic by a licensed chiropractor**
