Foot mobilisation therapy involves the gentle, pain-free manipulation of the foot and ankle to increase the range and quality of motion of stiff and often painful joints.
It is a gentle form of therapy carried out in sequence relating to your specific problem area/symptoms that may be successful in increasing movement and good foot function when applied regularly over a period of time. Initially, patients are required to attend for treatment every few days up to 3 times a week. This is then gradually decreased to a maintenance level based on presenting symptoms.
Foot mobilisation therapy is always used in conjunction with a stretching and strengthening program which will be provided to you by your podiatrist to ensure good foot health and a resolution of your symptoms.
