Yes there is something other than just Orthotics

Posted by Daniel Fitzpatrick on June 7, 2012

Because orthotics works like reading glasses: they’re only effective when in use.

And just like reading glasses orthotics improves your eyesight while wearing them, orthotics do not repair and improve your body’s functions when you can ‘t fit them in your favourite shoes.

They’re also impractical for some people. Orthotics severely limits your choice of footwear. So you’re compromising your lifestyle.

Below are some of the alternatives that are available at Alternative Foot Solutions, this is exciting because for the first time men and women have a choice of a range of treatments to fit lifestyle. No restrictions as are the case with orthotics.

At Alternative Foot Solutions, we have a strong belief that the treatment needs to achieve your goals this may range from running without pain, to wearing your fave killer heels. Were not saying that wearing heels doesn’t cause problems we just want to minimise those risks and accept the fact that sometimes fashion dictates it’s a must. Orthotics just doesn’t work for everyone.

Alternatively, we concentrate on improving your body’s function from the ground up. This can relate to helping you get back to exercise without pain allowing you to go further and achieve more as a result and remain more active.

What is Foot Mobilisation Therapy (FMT)?

Through gentle mobilisation and manipulation, FMT physiologically changes the alignment of the joints in your feet, knees and hips. And while it’s called Foot Mobilisation Therapy, it can heal many areas of your body, not just your feet.

Foot Mobilisation therapy is based on gentle, controlled movements. The joints in your feet are taken through their natural motions to help your body heal and function just as nature intended. Foot Mobilisation therapy also tries to make you as self-sufficient as possible so that you aren’t constantly dependant on external devices (like orthotics) or footwear.

Foot Mobilisation Therapy is gentle, painless and non-invasive. We fix your feet and eliminate heel pain, plantar fasciitis, foot pain, ball of foot pain, morton’s neuroma, Achilles tendonitis, clawed toes and bunions.

What about acupuncture?

Using the perfect blend of Chinese traditional points and Western medical science, our acupuncture reduces the pain in your body – and promotes your healing.

When some receives acupuncture we insert a small number of tiny needles just underneath your skin for no longer than twenty minutes.

And it’s relaxing, not painful.

In fact, the size of our acupuncture needles is almost seven times smaller than the absolute smallest injecting needle.
