Foot Mobilisation and Manipulation Therapy is a very effective form of joint mobilisation, using manipulation techniques, to treat many foot alignment and biomechanical issues. Foot Mobilisation and Manipulation Therapy is widely used by health professionals around the world to restore normal joint function and range of motion.
Joint restrictions in the feet can lead to joint displacement and shifting. These misalignments can cause increased pressure and stress through the joints. The body has to then compensate for this displacement, leading to symptoms of pain, stiffness, arthritis and poor foot function. This can result in adaptations to walking style, which can lead to further complications such as, knee, hip and lower back strain.
Foot Mobilisation and Manipulation therapy releases restrictions in the feet and lower limbs , allowing the connective tissue to heal and repair to a more healthy functioning state, increasing mobility.
The ultimate goal of this therapy is to correct these underlying joint and structural alignments, maintain mobility and improve strength, balance and foot posture.
