Considering Foot Mobilisation Therapy?

What is it?

Foot mobilisation is the application of force at a joints end passive range of movement.  The force is gentle enough that you can overcome the force applied.

Why would you opt for this treatment?

There are a number of reasons why foot mobilisation may be of benefit you, including problems from the way you walk or following injury such as an ankle sprain.

If you have painful feet, foot mobilisations can reduce this by:

  • Improving the relationship between joints in the lower limb.  Based on the principle that everything works best when it’s in the right place. 
  • Soft tissues such as muscle, tendon and ligaments adapt to their shortest functional length.  Through your treatment programme foot mobilisation will challenge this.
  • Improve quality and range of motion at the joint.
  • To complement and improve the results obtained via prescription insoles.

What does treatment involve?

Over a 6 week period initially you will be treated twice weekly for the first 3 weeks and your foot will be strapped afterwards.

Following a review, from week 4 to 6 you will receive 1 treatment per week.  This may, if required, be followed up by a maintenance session.
