So, you are suffering with pain in the ankle? Or maybe your ankles feel weak and it’s hard to balance because your ankles are unstable?

Sometimes resulting in a bony growth and quite possibly pain and osteoarthritis, bunions are the deviation of the big toe towards the middle of the foot, and are caused by the way a person walks or stands. Gentle foot mobilisation therapy will realign the joint into the correct position and then strengthen the muscles surrounding it for further reinforcement.
The main underlying cause of heel pain is misalignment of the bones of your foot and ankle that leads to compensation of the soft tissues around the heel area, which in turn leads to micro tears in the tissue and inflammation that leads to pain. This misalignment affects the way you stand and the way that you walk. We use gentle hands on techniques to correct the alignment and then we reinforce this position by strengthening the muscles that surround the relevant joints.

The more common type of arthritis, Osteoarthritis is the degeneration of the bone due to lessening levels of synovial fluid, which acts as a lubricant for the bone and decreases its wear and tear. FMT will help to stimulate the flow of this fluid back into the bone to prevent any irreversible damage.
