A Podiatrist providing a Foot Mobilisation TechniqueWhat is FMT?

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 and stiffness
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Forefoot pain
  • Tired and sore feet

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.
