Get back on your feet & active with Foot Mobilisation & Manipulation.

Did you know that each foot has 33 little joints? Each of these joints plays a pivotal role is allowing our feet to move and adapt to the surfaces we walk on day in, day out!  When one (or many) of these joints is not functioning effectively it can limit our overall movement and ability to stay active.

Our team of Podiatrists have undergone postgraduate study in Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to enable these 33 little joints to move and function efficiently.

Foot Mobilisation Therapy is a hands on treatment technique that gently helps maximise the efficiency of joints by isolating each joint and moving it through it’s range of motion.  The treatment is similar to the mobilisation and manipulation your Physiotherapist, Osteopath or Chiropractor would do for other areas of your body (eg. back, neck etc).  This treatment is coupled with a home exercise program to optimise mobility and stability of these joints.

Is FMT the right treatment for me?

Good question… FMT is not a silver bullet. FMT is used in combination with addressing the other causative factors (reasons) as to why you have the pain/discomfort.

FMT is effective for a lot of conditions of the foot, ankle and further up the leg. The common ones we see great outcomes for are; Heel pain (plantar facsiosis / plantar fasciitis), Bunions (Hallux valgus), Arthritis, Bursitis, Neuromas, Achilles tendinosis, Sesamoiditis, Shin pain (Medial tibial stress syndrome), Sports injuries, Tired and sore feet.

For the best outcomes, FMT is performed by your Podiatrist at more frequent intervals to begin with and extends out as mobility and return to activity is achieved. Also, no need to fear, FMT treatment is generally not a painful treatment although you can be a little sore or tender after the treatment as the joints begin to move more freely.
