Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) is a technique to improve the alignment and functionality of the foot and leg. FMT targets the joints of the foot and ankle which are stiff, poorly aligned or dysfunctional to gradually restore them. This is achieved through a series of “hands-on” treatment sessions in conjunction with a specific exercise regime we prescribe.

Foot mobilisation is widely used to restore normal range of motion and joint function. Without intervention, misaligned or restricted joints can lead to many biomechanical compensations such as foot, knee, hip and back strain or pain. The ultimate goal is to correct any underlying biomechanical issues, rectify the misaligned joints, preserve mobility and improve strength.

How does Foot Mobilisation Therapy work?

The treatment targets the stiff and restricted joints to improve the range of motion and position. This allow the body to naturally restore its optimal biomechanics.

The treatment will involve moving the joints to their natural range of motion to break up any adhesions or restrictions. This enables the joints to be freed and restore postural alignment through physiological changes. The therapy itself is gentle and works naturally with your body. The treatment stimulates the body’s capability to repair and restore itself, thereby reducing pain and inflammation. Our highly skilled team

What to expect from the Foot Mobilisation Therapy treatment?

  • Joints become more mobile and function optimally.
  • Revitalisation of the nerve messages and improving muscle strength.
  • Pain reduced.
  • Posture improvement by promoting the body’s balancing system.

Key benefits:

  • Treatment modality that does not just treat the symptoms but rather find the cause of dysfunction to guide the body to heal.
  • Non-invasive, no medication or aggressive techniques.
  • Remain active and continue with daily activities in most cases throughout the therapy.

FMT can be used to treat a range of conditions which are not limited to the following:

  • Deformed digits
  • Bunions
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Arch pain
  • Heel pain
  • Achilles pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Calf pain
  • Foot cramps
  • General foot stiffness
