Mobilisation and Manipulation therapy, within podiatry, is a long established, non-invasive, “hands-on” therapy designed to help restore the range of lower leg motion and function. The treatment may include stretches, movements against resistance and the manipulation and mobilisation of soft tissues and joints.
This treatment can be particularly useful following an injury where the body produces scar tissue as part of the healing process. Scar tissue is not as stretchy as healthy tissue and can reduce mobility causing pain and restricted movement. This technique can be very effective in restoring normal function to the affected area. Reducing the scar tissue will help to reduce any inflammation, pain, swelling and improve the circulation

Most treatments are for 30 minutes and are carried out at weekly intervals until the symptoms subside. The number of treatments vary depending upon the problem. Occasionally only 1 treatment is needed. Our patients usually feel the benefit of the treatment within a few hours.
In some cases top up treatments and the use of orthotics may be required to maintain the effects of the therapy. Please be aware that this technique may not be effective in all cases and alternative treatments could be needed. Our podiatrist will be happy to help should this be felt to be necessary.
After the course of treatments has finished our podiatrist will provide you with exercises to do as well as some self help techniques to do at home in order to maintain the effects of your treatment.
