Foot Mobilisation Technique (F.M.T.)
What is Foot Mobilisation Technique?
Foot mobilisation technique (FMT) is a manual therapy that mobilises the joints of the feet and helps restore normal joint function and range of motion. During FMT the joints of the feet are gently taken through their normal range of motions to aid the body in creating physiological changes to alignment.
What can Foot Mobilisation Technique treat?
FMT has been used to directly treat many foot and ankle conditions such as:
- Sore calve muscles
- Achilles problems
- Ankle pain
- Heel pain
- Sore arches
- Aching balls of the feet
- Foot cramping
- Clawed toes and hammer toes
Patients that have undergone a treatment plan of FMT have also noticed indirect improvements and relief of lower back pain, hip, thigh and knee pain. This is due to the restoration of foot joint function and the alignment of the bones in your feet.
FMT in some cases can provide patients with an alternative option to orthotics or surgery. If you feel like you have exhausted all options when it comes to fixing your feet, maybe FMT is the option that can finally fix your problem.
