PODIATRIST STATES THAT PREGNANT WOMEN NEED TO WEAR SUPPORTIVE SHOES

NEW JERSEY, DR. BRUCE CALLIGARO STATES, " ARE YOU STRUGGLING JUST TO SQUEEZE INTO THE SHOES YOU WORE BECOMING PREGNANT?  IT'S NOT IN YOUR HEAD, MAMA.  IT'S ACTUALLY IN YOUR FEET, ACCORDING TO A NEW STUDY FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA THAT SAYS ONE OF PREGNANCY'S LASTING EFFECT CAN BE A LARGER SHOE SIZE.  KEY HEALTHY FOOT TIPS FOR MOMS-TO-BE INCLUDE PAYING ATTENTION TO FOOTWEAR.  CHOOSE TO WEAR SUPPORTIVE, STABLE SHOES THAT FIT WELL.  IF YOU CAN'T FIND COMFORTABLE SHOES, A PODIATRIST CAN PROVIDE YOU WITH ORTHOTIC INSERTS FOR YOUR SHOES TO DISTRIBUTE WEIGHT MORE EVENLY AND SUPPORT ARCHES."

ONE THING THAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS IS TO ALWAYS RECEIVE HONEST, COMPETENT INFORMATION ON ALL YOUR FOOT CARE CONCERNS.  WE ALWAYS ADVISE OUR PATIENTS ON THE PROPER FOOTWEAR CHOICES AND ALWAYS ADVISE AGAINST HIGH HEELS WHICH ARE THE WORST THING POSSIBLE FOR YOU FEET, KNEES, HIPS AND SPINE.  THERE IS A PODIATRIST IN TORONTO WHO PERFORMS UNNECESSARY COSMETIC SURGERY ON WOMEN WHERE HE SLICES OFF PORTIONS OF THEIR TOES SO THAT THEY WILL BETTER FIT INTO HIGH HEELS.  HE CALLS THIS 'RESHAPING" OF THE FOOT.  SOMETHING THAT OUR FOOT CLINIC WOULD NEVER, EVER RECOMMEND.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS.
