The numerous joints in your feet can glide upon each other. These gentle movements are important. However, when these joints become stiff due to a number of factors, the glide and gentle movements are lost. Consequently, the soft tissues around the joints including muscles, ligaments and tendons have to work harder to compensate. This leads to foot and ankle pain and exhaustion of the soft tissues involved.
Foot mobilisation includes controlled and firm movements of the joints by your podiatrist in order to reduce the stiffness in joints and restore their normal movements.
