The role of orthotics during pregnancy

Expectant mothers require additional foot support during pregnancy. The additional weight on the feet, legs and pelvis makes walking painful and tiring. During pregnancy the body secrets a hormone called Relaxin that allows the body to grow in harmony during development. You may experience tired, sore and achy feet as they cope with the extra weight placed on them. Wearing Powerstep Protech foot orthotics in your footwear will allow you walk in comfort again.
