The foot is an engineering marvel. It has 26 bones, 33 joints, and over 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments supporting the whole body. Instead of taking care of it, many of us make its job even harder by wearing ill-fitting shoes, running around in six-inch heels and doing foot-pounding activities
This then results in poor foot function and foot pain. Left untreated, that innocent foot pain could become a chronic problem. At Foot & Leg Podiatrywe provide foot mobilisation therapy Perth wide. We believe it is the most effective treatment of foot pain without surgery.
At Foot & Leg Podiatry, we offer foot mobilisation therapy in Perth, which is an efficient way to treat your feet — without medication or invasive surgery. It helps with the pain and provides physiological improvements to the body. Foot joint mobilisation also makes the joint more mobile, make the muscles of the feet work more efficiently, improve posture and balance, and reduce pain
Foot mobilisation therapy involves the gentle movement of the joints. This specifically targets joints that are not functioning well, stiff or poorly aligned, and promotes repair and function. It changes the alignment of the joints through natural motions, helping it heal and function just as nature intended
Although the therapy primarily targets foot pain, it may also treat associated pain in the ankles, knees, hips and the lower back. Some conditions where this treatment may be successful are aching feet, arthritis, bunions and plantar heel pain.
One of our therapists will first take a full history of your problem and ask you various health-related questions. We may also examine the areas of the feet, check the alignment and observe the way the foot moves. Including what happens when you stand and walk. This way, we will know the best way to approach the pain and the direction of the treatment.
If you feel pain, stiffness or reduced balance of the foot, foot mobilisation from Foot & Leg Podiatry could be right for you. Contact us today for an initial consultation.
