The bones that commonly break from stress are in the forefoot, the section that extends from your toes to the middle of your foot. These tiny cracks do not extend through the bone, like most other types of fractures. They are typically stable, meaning no shift in bone alignment is caused. Nor do they displace bones so that the bone ends no longer line up.
There are not many “do not’s” with baby reflexology. Be guided by your baby and you can not go wrong. Just use enough pressure to have contact with their skin, as if you were trying to wipe something off their skin. You don’t want to tickle, but you don’t need to push hard or deep into their feet. If your baby pulls their feet away just let them. They will take a little time to get used to the experience so its best to relax and allow your baby to set the pace. Ensure you are comfortable during the session, if you aren’t comfortable you can’t relax. Simply find a position that makes you and baby happy. If your baby is ill or has had their vaccinations then leave it for a few days before continuing with reflexology.

Pain, swelling, and often, discoloration, are the usual symptoms of a fracture in the foot. You may still be able to walk, but this usually increases the pain. If the pain and swelling do not significantly decrease in two or three days, or if the pain with walking doesn’t stop, you should assume something is wrong.
I felt relieved that someone was concerned enough to ring and follow up her concerns. My hopes of any sympathy from the surgeon were short lived the next morning when Dr Stapleton called in. Having been told of the discomfort I was in decided to look for himself. “Oh that’s fine,” he said ” That’s coming on nicely” was his only comment before he disappeared out of the room. Having operated on hundreds of men he had summed up his handy work quickly. I don’t remember saying thank you as he left.
