Cairns Podiatry Centre

Shop 2, 494 Mulgrave Road
Earlville QLD 4870

Formerly trading as Proarch Podiatry our Cairns Podiatry Centre is the newest addition to the my FootDr family.

What is it that sets our podiatry business apart from every other Cairns podiatrist? It’s simple, we reinvest in our business and provide services that cannot be found anywhere else.

We design, make & fit our orthotics within 24 hours guaranteed, using the latest computerised scanning and milling system. Whether you call them orthotics or arch supports, our goal is to make them quickly, so you can get back to enjoying your active lifestyle.

If you have sore painful heels in the morning when you get out of bed, that’s not normal and you want the problem fixed now, not in two weeks, which is why we provide a 24 hour orthotic service.

One treatment cannot be used to treat every problem, and every patient, which is why we also offer shockwave therapy, ultrasound, acupuncture, wax foot baths and foot mobilisation.

The latest service introduced is laser treatment for fungal toenails. If you’ve been putting up with ugly yellow, white or brown looking fungal toenails, there is an effective treatment available that is safe, painless, has no side effects and works.
