Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT)

Foot Mobilisation Therapy or FMT is a ‘hands on’ therapy utilising unique mobilisation and manipulation techniques to treat many biomechanical and foot alignment issues. These misalignments can often be the underlying cause of foot and leg pain.

FMT works on the principle of helping joint and structural alignment with gentle mobilisation and manipulation techniques. These techniques work in conjunction with your body’s own healing properties to aid recovery and help prevent future injuries. Foot Mobilisation Therapy can help improve joint function, and when coupled with stretching and strengthening may help relieve the cause of your pain.

Foot Mobilisation Therapy is combined with a comprehensive strength and stretching program that is gradually introduced over the period of treatment. When combined with strength and flexibility, FMT can help reduce your symptoms and there is often less need to rely on methods of treatment like orthotics and innersoles.

The FMT program initially begins with more intensive treatments over the course of a month to help address pain and inflammation. As the program progresses there is less need for regular Foot Mobilisation Therapy sessions as you build strength and return to the activities.  The aim of FMT is to maintain mobility and modify activities whilst you recover, then return to regular activity as soon as possible. By working on your alignment and foot posture FMT may help provide a strong foundation and reduce the risk of future injury.
