At Erica Dash Podiatry, Erica and Stuart provide a proven alternative to orthotic and surgical therapy, using a ‘hands-on’ technique called Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT). FMT coupled with stretching, strengthening and stabilising exercises, can remove the cause of foot, ankle, leg, knee, hip and back pain and allow greater choices in footwear.
Foot mobilisation is a gentle and painless technique, which stimulates the body’s inherent desire to repair and restore itself. Foot mobilisation is a treatment option designed to realign existing joint displacement or subluxation. Subluxations cause other tissue to over compensate resulting in foot, leg and back pain.
Foot mobilisation negates the need for orthotic use altogether due to the corrective forces that have been applied to your feet. Comparitively, orthotics artificially support subluxation and are only of use whilst being worn. Foot mobilisation can assist with the non-surgical reduction of bunions, as well as assisting in pain relief associated with plantar fasciitis, neuromas, heel pain, knee pain and arthritic conditions.
