Foot Mobilisation Therapy

Treat foot pain with Foot Mobilisation Therapy!

At Sole podiatry our Podiatrists have undergone further training to be able to offer Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) as part of your treatment plan.

Foot Mobilisation techniques (FMT) is a manual “hands on” therapy specifically developed to improve your foot and ankle function by targeting stiff, mal-aligned or dysfunctional joints to improve the function of your feet and ankles. This form of manual therapy is similar to what a osteopath or chiropractor would offer as part of their treatment plan.

FMT involves finding and treating the cause of your pain rather than just the symptoms, by individually assessing each bone and joint in the foot and ankle and using your own body’s natural repair process to reduce pain and improve foot posture.

What problems could FMT be used to treat?

FMT can be beneficial to most people who have pain or stiffness in their feet and can be used to treat Injuries/symptoms such as:

Ankle Sprains

Chronic Ankle Pain

Midfoot Pain & Stiffness

If you think you might benefit from foot mobilisation therapy, book in with one of our Podiatrists to have an assessment and individualised treatment plan. FMT is usually combined with other treatment options such as Stretching, Strengthening, Footwear changes, Orthotics etc to give better outcomes for our patients.
