Women’s Health Month: 3 of the Most Common Female Foot Issues

A staggering number of women will experience foot pain at some point in their life. May is Women’s Health Month, so today, Dr. Hubert Lee at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA, is sharing important information about 3 of the most common women’s foot health issues.

Women’s bodies go through numerous changes throughout their lives. Some of the changes are preventable and predictable, but some problems with the feet can be more challenging for women due to pregnancy, footwear, and lifestyle factors.

Taking care of your feet and tackling any issues head-on is vital to your overall health and wellness.

Here are three of the most common female foot health issues we see here in our office:


  1. Plantar Fasciitis: This condition is an important problem among women of all ages. Biomechanics can add to existing heel pain, and non-supportive shoes like flip-flops and ballet flats can also contribute to plantar fasciitis


  1. Pregnancy: A pregnant woman’s body undergoes numerous changes. Hormone changes and weight gain can cause pain and swelling and even slacken ligaments in the feet during pregnancy. 


  1. Bunions: These are another common foot health concern we see in women. Bunions form when the big toe begins to lean and gradually alter the angle of the bones in the foot. While both women and men can get bunions, in many cases, narrow, tight shoes and high heels often make this deformity worse. 


Today, many women lead very busy lives, juggling work and home, which makes it challenging to care for themselves first. Taking care of foot problems as they come up is crucial to being able to perform your normal daily activities.

Whether you’re a busy mom, an elite athlete, or are working a full-time job, our team is here to help you put your best foot forward this month and every month.

During Women’s Health Month, we encourage you to take special care of your feet. Dr. Hubert Lee and his team at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA, pride themselves on efficiently and effectively managing women’s foot problems. We will thoroughly assess your condition, advise you of your treatment options, and answer all questions you may have regarding your foot health.
