Foot Mobilisation

What is Foot Mobilisation?

The Foot and Leg Clinic stay ahead of the times and focus their method of fixing feet and body posture by practising Foot Mobilisation.

Foot Mobilisation is a very specific method of mobilising the foot, ankle, and lower limb, to gain outstanding results. Instead of wearing foot orthotics to change foot posture (and improve position and function of all the joints of the lower limb) we achieve this through a series of ‘hands on’ Foot Mobilisation treatment sessions.

 

How does Foot Mobilisation work?

  • Foot Mobilisation identifies which of the many foot joints are stiff and lodged in the wrong position.
  • Improves mobility and promotes fluid production around the small joints of the feet by breaking adhesions or restrictions around these joints.
  • Returns bones and joints to their original or best position.
  • Allows the body to naturally repair itself.
  • Improves joint function, foot posture, knee posture, hip posture.
  • Improves muscle function of the foot and leg, by invigorating the nerve messages sent from the brain to lower limb muscles.
  • Reduces excess tissue stress and allows the body to naturally repair itself

Foot Mobilisation has been around for many years and is well practised by clinicians of different disciplines.  This method of treatment is recognised by podiatry registration boards and insurance companies, and is included in scientific clinical studies.

The Foot and Leg Clinic specialists have studied Foot Mobilisation and are excited to introduce this wonderful method of fixing feet to as many of the Scottish public as we can.  We are keen to spread the word of this revolutionary method of improving foot posture and eliminating body pains, WITHOUT the need to wear foot orthotics…ever!

Foot Mobilisation is not the same as the more general methods of foot therapy.  Clinicians at The Foot and Leg Clinic have trained in general disciplines, but prefer to practice the specific discipline of Foot Mobilisation as described above.  Foot Mobilisation targets joints of your foot and ankle, which are stiff, poorly aligned or dysfunctional, and aims to gradually restore the way they work. Unlike other treatment methods, this method of foot therapy identifies and treats the source of your pain instead of treating the symptoms.  We assess the position and function of each tiny bone and joint of your foot and once we’ve established where the problem lies, we perform Foot Mobilisation to realign the bones and joints, advise on a specific muscle strengthening programme, and use the body’s natural repair process to reduce pain and improve foot posture.  A better foot position will then create a better knee, hip, and spinal posture – and allow the muscles that surround these joints to perform better.  Ultimately, the body will work better!

The Foot and Leg Clinic is different because we focus on Foot Mobilisation to treat your problem, rather than supplying foot orthotics (insoles).
