Our services:

Biomechanical Assessment: When you book an appointment with our podiatrists, they will take a detailed history, perform a physical assessment, use video walking analysis, and take a 3D foot scan to find out what’s causing the pain.

Video Walking Analysis: How you walk means a lot to a podiatrist. There are three basic stages to the human gait cycle, and it is impossible view the detail of this intricate motion with the naked eye. With our computerised video gait analysis, we are able to break each second of the gait cycle into tiny segments (frames), allowing detailed assessment of the patient’s foot position and overall posture.

Custom-made foot orthotics:
When your feet need a little extra support, we prescribe custom foot orthotics to help alleviate and prevent foot, ankle, and knee pain and improve your balance and foot function in general. From children to professional sports athletes, My FootDr has helped support thousands of happy feet across the country and is proudly the leading provider of custom foot orthotics in Australia.
