Foot mobilisation therapy – podiatry treatment that doesn't require the use of orthotics

Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT) is a very effective form of joint mobilisation, which uses hands-on manipulation techniques to treat foot alignment and biomechanical issues. FMT is widely used by health professionals around the world, to restore normal joint function and range of motion, without orthotics, surgery or drugs. Misalignment of joints in the foot can cause increased pressure and strain on the soft tissues.

The body is forced to compensate, leading to pain, stiffness, arthritis and poor foot function. This can result in adaptations in walking style, which can lead to further complications, such as knee, hip and lower back strain. FMT is used to release restrictions in the feet and lower limbs, and allow the tissues to heal and repair to a healthy, functioning state. 

Orthotics are like reading glasses, they only work when you are wearing them so the goal at Corrective Foot Solutions in Tauranga and Parnell (Auckland) is to correct the underlying joint and structural misalignments long term, maintain mobility, and improve strength, balance and foot posture – so that you can live an active and health lifestyle.

Our process steps for FMT



Thorough history- We take the time to understand your problem. Biomechanical assessment: Hands on joint and postural evaluation, foot and leg gait analysis.



A treatment plan will be determined that suits you. Treatment will involve Foot Mobilisation therapy combined with corrective exercises. Together these two treatments will start the healing process.



This gentle, targeted and painless technique stimulates the body’s natural ability to repair and restore itself. With FMT, we change the structure of your foot - meaning your condition will continue to improve over time. While orthotics only work while you wear them, FMT provides a more permanent solution to your foot problems. Without reliance on orthotics, you can continue to wear the footwear that suits you.



The treatment is further assessed, If an X ray was taken initially then an X ray will be taken post treatment to also provide objective feed back.

Have you tried everything and nothing seems to work? Then you need to try Foot Mobilisation Therapy.
