What is Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT)?

Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) is a series of manual treatments, that utilise the varying hands-on techniques of joint mobilisation. 

Joint mobilisation used in conjunction with foot strengthening and conditioning exercises, enhance foot health and strength.  It is a gentle treatment used to help realign the joints and increase circulation to the feet, promoting healing and improving foot function.

Biomechanical and musculoskeletal disorders of the foot and leg result from abnormal compensation of the affected structures. Joint dysfunction can cause compensation of related structures including bones, cartilage, muscle, ligaments, tendons, nerves and blood vessels.

Correcting joint dysfunction with FMT can aid the treatment of the following conditions:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Heel Spur Syndrome
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Hallux Valgus
  • Sesamoiditis
  • Cuboid Syndrome
  • Sinus Tarsi Syndrome
  • Digital Contractures such as Hammer Toes
  • Ankle Instability
  • Ankle sprains
  • Posterior Tibialis Tendonitis
  • Shin Splints
  • Patello-femoral syndrome

FMT is based on manipulative therapy which has been long established and widely utilised within the Physiotherapy, Chiropractic and Osteopathic professions.

The focus of FMT can provide clients with long-lasting improvements in their foot or leg pain.  This gentle technique stimulates the body’s inherent desire to repair and restore itself and can reduce the need for orthotics, medication or surgery.
