Foot Mobilisation Therapy By Your Podiatrist

Foot Mobilisation Therapy

What is Foot Mobilisation Therapy?

Foot Mobilisation Techniques (FMT) is the use of manual joint movements focused at improving foot and leg function. Foot mobilisations therapy target joints of the foot and ankle that are stiff, dysfunctional or in a poor alignment. A podiatrist will use FMT with the aim of working to gradually realign and restore the way they (and you) move.

How do we perform foot mobilisations?

FMT is one of the many tools our Movement Centre podiatrists have at our disposal and can yield fantastic results, helping you not only feel better, move better but even and perform better.

During your appointment at The Movement Centre, our highly skilled practitioner checks, assesses and where required, applies a corrective manual therapy to your feet and lower legs. Your podiatrist will take the joints through their natural motions to improve mobility, which we often combine with specific exercises to enhance results and help you get you the best bang for your buck.

What does FMT actually do to the body?

  • Improve joint mobility by breaking up connective tissue adhesions and restrictions
  • Improve postural stability by stimulating the body’s proprioceptive systems
  • Reduces pain signalling – which is why it can be quite therapeutic!

If you think you may benefit from Foot Mobilisation Therapy techniques, make sure you book an appointment with our Movement Centre podiatrists so they can accurately assess your feet and work to get you moving as optimally as possible.
