Why Mobilise and Manipulate?
"Everything works BEST, when in the right place"
Connective tissues always adapt to their shortest functional length. In some cases these adaptations can create joint imbalances which leads to compensation movement patterns. These compensations often create your symptoms.
FMT targets joints of your foot and ankle, which are stiff, poorly aligned or dysfunctional and aims to gradually restore the way they work. This is achieved through a series of 'hands on' treatment sessions in conjunction with a specific tailored exercise regime.
Foot Mobilisation/manipulation Therapy requires short treatments that can produce results that last between 48 to 72 hours. If you have treatment regularly, the cumulative effects ensure that the results are experienced for longer periods of time
Every time you receive in FMT as a treatment, you will experience:
FMT will benefit any of the following
Ankle Pain - Including rehabilitation for a sprain
Lateral foot pain - Cuboid syndrome
Plantar Fasciitis - Heel spurs
Stiff Joints - Those who feel that they just need a good old crack!
