👣Pregnancy & the Feet:
Pregnancy drives a multitude of different changes in a Woman’s body that can lead to new aches and pains.

🤰During pregnancy your body produces a hormone called relaxin. Relaxin levels rise during your first trimester to assist with implantation and placenta growth, towards the end of pregnancy relaxin helps the ligaments of the pelvis to, well, relax in preparation for child birth.

🧘Relaxin’s effects aren’t isolated to the pelvic ligaments, meaning the 30 odd ligaments in your feet also soften and stretch! Your feet may become wider, flatter, longer and even less supported through the arch!

🦵Other changes you may notice:

✨Shoes may become difficult to fit into
✨Swelling in the feet, ankles and legs
✨As bump grows greater difficulty reaching the feet
✨Ingrown toenails, often as a result of a combination of swelling and unable to perform regular toenail trims or in-even trims

🤗Our Podiatrists can help with footwear advice, gentle exercises, general Foot and toenail care and guide you towards making your pregnancy as enjoyable as possible.

😅Ladies, does this picture make you nervous? Or specifically, your pelvic floor nervous?! There, we said it…

⁉️Wait, what?
Don’t Podiatrists only deal with feet?!

🌎 Uh, yeah, but we look globally at the person as a whole…after all your feet are connected to the rest of your body!

🤸‍♀️Did you know, the research indicates that ankle position can influence Pelvic Floor contraction?

🦵 What does this mean? Ankle position can change your pelvic position and surrounding muscle co-activation.

🕵️‍♀️ As Podiatrists, we can assess your lower limb movement and flexibility - as tight ankles, calf complex, hamstrings and adductors (inside thigh muscles) will influence the pelvic floor.

🚺If you are experiencing symptoms that may be related to Pelvic Floor muscle weakness, the first step is to find a pelvic floor Physiotherapist.

👌🏻Don’t worry, we won’t be asking any uncomfortable questions at your next appointment!

❤️Heart Health
Did you know, currently 90% of women have one risk factor for heart disease in Australia, and 50% have two or more?

🥰This Women’s Health Week, we're encouraging you to remember to celebrate the women you love, starting with the most important – YOU!

❤️Putting your heart health first is putting yourself first, and a happy heart means a lifetime spent with the people you love.

👟Grab your shoes, grab a friend and walk your way to better heart health. Better heart health will lead to better circulation and foot health. It all starts from the ground up!

Wondering what on earth is going on here?!

👆This is a hyper-mobile joint.

📢 Say What?

🤸‍♂️Hyper-mobile joints have an unusually large range of movement. Some people will refer to it as ‘loose joints’ or being ‘double jointed’. It may be hereditary in nature (passed on from parents to their children).

🦶Often no symptoms are experienced and no treatment is required.
💥 However pain can be experienced…
🏃🏽 Sometimes in children poor coordination & balance or disinterest in sports may indicate an issue.

💤 The muscles work harder, fatigue faster and are at higher chance of injury.

🚴 Like riding a bike with the nuts and bolts loose - it makes it incredibly hard and unstable.

🏋️By slowing working on stability and strength, taking into account the whole body, improvements can be seen and symptoms reduced.

❓Unsure? Questions? Come in and chat with our experienced Podiatrists. We can assess and guide appropriate management.

😵 Ingrown Toenails 😵

Ingrown toenails can affect anyone at any age.
There are 4️⃣ main reasons you might get an ingrown toenail 

1. Wide nail plate
2. Tight footwear
3. Trauma to the toe
4. Improper cutting of the toenail

Getting a painful ingrown toenail can be daunting. Rest assured, our team of experienced and proficient Podiatrists can help get you started on your journey of healing your ingrown toenail.

We provide a range of treatments including:
✔️ Removal of the offending nail edge
✔️Packing the nail edge with foam to help lift it to provide relief
✔️Removal of the painful side of the nail completely with an in room procedure (like Fiona is conducting in the photo) using sterile equipment

If you experience ingrown toenails, come and visit us for a caring and gentle approach!
