Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) is a practice that can be used to aid in foot function and relieve pain. It works by improving the mobility of joints in the feet that allows the muscles to work more efficiently. It stimulates your body’s ability to repair and restore itself, which in turn helps to reduce pain and inflammation while restoring foot alignment, mobility, and posture. This can form a vital part of your overall treatment which ultimately leads to effective pain relief and better performance.
The Podiatrists at Foot & Sole Podiatry are trained to provide a gentle hands-on manual therapy treatment to mobilise joints to allow them to function more appropriately and re-establish good muscle function. It enables us to treat the source of your pain, rather than just the symptoms.
As part of your Podiatry Biomechanical assessment, we examine what movement is restricted at the joints and what consequences this has on the overall movement of the feet and legs through your walking pattern. The Podiatrist then works to mobilise the joints as part of your management plan to get your feet moving efficiently and speeding up your recovery.
The Podiatrists at Foot and Sole can tailor a management plan to assess if you will be a suitable for Foot Mobilisation Therapy. We then can provide a combination of treatment modalities in conjunction with foot mobilisation therapy to enable you to have the best possible outcome for foot function.
