We are specialists in the painful foot, walking and running pain, heel pain, knee and lower back pain, foot orthotic therapy, sports injuries, diabetic and arthritic complications, minor foot surgery and lower limb biomechanical assessments.

Our approach to treatment is unique in Ireland and we treat the root cause of your problem and not just your symptoms.

Foot Mobilisation Techniques were developed as a response to these often asked questions:

"There must be a way of fixing the foot without using insoles, orthotics or changing my shoes?"

"Do I have to wear orthotics?'"

"Why can't I wear the shoes I want?"

"I've been told I just have to put up with the pain!"

"When can I wear normal shoes again?"

In our clinics we specialise in achieving dramatic improvements with natural corrective podiatry, which strengthens and straightens feet using foot mobilisation and exercises. This much sought after process is unique to us in Ireland and is highly effective.

Foot Mobilisation Techniques

Foot Mobilisation Techniques 'FMT' are a proven alternative treatment solution, that uses the 'hands-on' techniques of joint mobilisation and manipulation, combined with corrective exercises, to fix the cause of foot, heel, ankle, leg, knee, hip & back pain and without the need for shoe inserts (orthotics), surgery or medication.The focus of foot manipulation techniques is to provide long lasting improvements to foot and leg problems.This gentle and painless technique stimulates the body's inherent desire to repair & restore itself.

Foot Mobilisation has its roots in manipulative therapy, which is a long established technique widely used by the physiotherapy, chiropractic and osteopathic professions.

Evan if you currently use orthotics FMT can improve overall foot function.

Foot Mobilisation treats the following common foot problems along with many others:

  • Heel Pain
  • Bunions
  • Arch Pain
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Ankle Pain
  • Shin Splints
  • Cuboid Syndrome
  • Knee, Hip and Back Pain

Foot mobilisation detects and corrects mis-alignments in the joints, aiming to eliminate the cause of the pain and strengthen your muscles around the joints, achieving long lasting results rather than just short-term relief.

Getting to know you

The first part of the journey is for us to get to know you and your feet a little bit better. Only if we really understand your problems and what’s causing the pain can we develop the right foot mobilisation treatment for you.

The Foot Mobilisation treatment

Hands-on healing through joint mobilisation and corrective exercises stimulate your body’s natural repair systems. Each visit will promote the following restoration processes:

  • Improve mobility by breaking up adhesions and restrictions around the joints
  • Improve postural stability by stimulating the body’s proprioceptive (balancing) system
  • Improve muscle strength by invigorating the nerve messages sent from the brain to the relevant muscles
  • Reduce the ‘pain messages’ sent to the brain by stimulating the joint

While the treatment only takes a few minutes, the listed effects last for 48-72 hours. Repeated consistently, the effects will continue to last longer and longer.

Corrective Exercises

To complement the treatment you receive at our practice, we show you corrective exercises that are specifically tailored for your condition to ensure long lasting results are achieved and maintained. The objectives of the exercises are to stretch and strengthen your muscles so they can stabilise the joint.

Maintenance Program

Follow-up Reviews are a critical way to monitor your body’s progress. These are scheduled periodically to check your progress.
