Joint mobilisation is used to correct loss of joint mobility and improve how the foot functions. Many joints can develop restricted motion, which causespain and discomfort.This can also result in orthotics not working as well as they would if the foot itself was functioning better. The foot contains 33 joints, so thereís plenty of room for things to go wrong. Treatment isnít usually painful, and most patients find it quite comfortable.The podiatrist assesses the quality of motion of the joint and compares it to the other foot before deciding if mobilisation is necessary. There are many different ways to mobilise a joint, and the specific technique depends on the joints involved and their effect on the patients foot function. Mobilisation can be utilised for a range of different podiatric issues including: Heel pain, Mortonís neuromas, arch pain and ankle pain. Restricted mobility and function of the foot also affects the rest of the body by altering posture and balance. Therefore, mobilisation is a treatment which can benefit more than just the foot.
