Extreme postpartum fatigue and pain under foot

 Presenting case

Patient experienced extreme fatigue, lower back pain, pain under the foot and overall body ache after giving birth to her second child. 


Acupuncture sessions were given to help with the pain and general weakness. As patient was still breastfeeding, herbal medicine was suggested after weaning. 


Patient felt much better in all areas after the third acupuncture session. Her energy had also improved. 

Pain under foot is a sign of weak Kidney energy from a Chinese medicine point of view. Child bearing and giving birth consume a lot of Kidney energy in women and in some will manifest in physical symptoms afterwards. Acupuncture can be a very effective treatment to support the body to recover postpartum and boost Kidney energy to eliminate associated pain and weakness.
