What is it?
The human foot and ankle are a strong, complex and brilliant mechanical structure comprising 26 bones and over 100 ligaments.
Joints, ligaments and muscles in your feet and ankles can become stiff, weak and painful following injury, overuse, arthritis, or after surgery. These joints, ligaments and muscles can be successfully treated using Foot & Ankle Mobilisation (FMT).
FMT is a hands-on treatment that targets stiff joints in the foot and ankle which are poorly aligned and painful, with the aim of improving their function, and ultimately reducing pain.
Who is it for?
Foot & ankle mobilisation is extremely beneficial for patients suffering with:
- Non-specific aching feet
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Plantar Calcaneal Bursitis
- Joint pain and arthritis
- Mortons’ Neuroma
- Muscle tension
- Other neural or nerve impingement issuesPlease note: If you have surgical screws, plates or fixings in your feet or ankles this must be discussed and assessed during your initial consultation as this treatment may not work for you.
#TakeSteps to look after your feet
Walking the dog, taking the kids to school, running a marathon, or even running for a bus, we take thousands of steps in a day. In fact, we walk nearly 75,000 miles in a lifetime. Our feet bear the weight of our steps and keep us moving every day.
