Foot joint mobilisation (FJM) is a non-surgical technique used to restore range and quality of movement in joints. It involves applying various grades of pressure to the joints in different manual ways. This allows the receptors to be reactivated and allows for greater movement. Along with soft tissue mobilisation, this is a useful technique to help people recover from injury or long standing problems.
Who would benefit?
- Foot joint mobilisation would benefit anyone whose foot joints are fixed, stiff or generally out of the normal line.
- It breaks the connective tissue bonds which hold the joints incorrectly and allows normal joint function again.
Foot joint mobilisation works very well in conjunction with custom made orthoses.
