At alternative foot solutions we specialize in treating foot problems with foot mobilisation therapy. Foot mobilisation therapy is a gentle hands on approach that gently corrects the alignment of joints and as a result can be a great conservative approach to avoiding surgery in many cases. Addressing the underlying cause intrinsically means that we generally don’t need to use orthotics, and can give our patients a range of footwear options. We also don’t need to restrict activity and we encourage our patients to continue their normal activities depending on the condition.
