Foot Mobilisation Therapy
Mobilising the ankle joint using gentle hands-on therapy
Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT)
Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) is a highly effective and specialised treatment method, which only few Podiatrist’s have completed additional training in globally. The practice of FMT involves assessing and treating joints and muscles, which helps to determine areas of restriction in your foot and ankle.
Your Podiatrist will identify specific movement patterns within your feet, and then gently mobilise or manipulate the area to restore a normal range of motion. FMT works specifically on joints which are stiff, poorly aligned or not functioning as they should. It is through various hands on therapies of mobilisation and manipulation, coupled with a home exercise program that optimum joint functioning and pain free motion can be achieved. In certain cases orthotic therapy will also be advised.
