Foot Mobilisation

Foot Mobilisation Therapy

Foot Mobilisation is a very specific method of mobilising the foot, ankle and lower limbs


Foot Mobilisation identifies and treats the sources of your pain

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 a specific method of Foot Mobilisation in varied cities around the world 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 Therapy has many amazing benefits.  As clinicians performing this treatments for a vast number of years now, we’re still amazed that a small amount of treatment can resolve years of pain.

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 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) every time. We do however prescribe foot orthotics and manufacture these at our own in-house workshop but it’s important to know that foot orthotics are not always required.

What We Treat

No matter the condition, we have a treatment to help.

The foot and ankle biomechanical assessment is the analysis of the function of each of the individual joints of the foot and ankle, and relating these findings to the function of the muscles of the lower leg and foot.

There are a variety of common leg injuries which we treat at The Foot and Leg Clinic. Leg injuries are a common occurrence as part of day to day life as well as those injuries sustained from sporting activities.

Knee injuries often relate to poor alignment of the foot, hip or both. Poor foot alignment results in change in the alignment of the knee and hip, therefore results in a change in muscle pattern around these joints.

We would suggest that the first step when treating a hip or back injury would be to consult with our specialist biomechanical clinician or the physiotherapist.

There are many triggers for headaches, including stress, trauma and chemical. The most common reason for headache is the result of tension of the neck muscles.

Neuromuscular conditions include a large range of conditions and ailments which are a result of problems with the central nervous system.

A trapped nerve higher up the arm or back can result in pain in a distal location. Our physiotherapists carry out a detailed assessment to analyse the reason for your injury before devising your treatment plan.
