Foot Mobilisation Therapy

Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) is a specialised treatment aimed at fixing your foot and leg pain. FMT is derived from 'manipulative therapy', widely used by the physiotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathic professions.

FMT targets joints of your foot and ankle, which are stiff, poorly aligned or dysfunctional and aims to gradually improve the way they move. This is achieved through a series of 'hands on' treatment sessions combined with exercises to fix the causes of your pain without the need for orthotics, shoe insoles, surgery or medication.

 

Together, Joint Mobilisation and Corrective Exercise enable your body to undertake its own natural repair process. Each time you are treated with foot mobilisation, you will experience:

  • Improves joint mobility by freeing the restrictions that are preventing mobility.

  • Postural stability will be improved by promoting the body's proprioceptive (balancing) system to work better.

  • Muscles around the joint will become stronger by increasing the muscle to nerve messages.

  • The pain messages that are sent to the brain will also be reduced by stimulating the joint.

  • While the treatment only takes a few minutes, the listed effects last for 48-72 hours. Repeated consistently, the effects will begin to last longer and longer.

Even if you currently use insoles or orthotics, FMT can improve your overall foot function.
