Our centres provide the full scope of clinical podiatry including comprehensive foot assessments, various treatments and surgery.
Formerly trading as Proarch Podiatry, My FootDr Cairns is located at Shop 2, 494 Mulgrave Road (opposite Stockland).
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.
Our podiatrists treat a wide range of foot, ankle and lower leg conditions including heel pain (plantar fasciitis), forefoot pain (Morton’s neuroma), foot and ankle sprains, knee pain (e.g. patellofemoral pain syndrome). We can also help with ingrown toenails, diabetes foot care and fungal toenails.
We design, make & fit our orthotics 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, or throughout the day, our custom-made orthotics can help.
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.
If you hold a DVA gold card, you may be eligible for a number of fully subsidised podiatry services - and it all starts with a foot health assessment. If you’ve yet to take advantage of this service - or you have no idea how podiatry can help you, we’ve outlined everything you need to know about your foot health and My FootDr below.
It’s Australian Tradies National Health Month and to help support tradie health and encourage a healthy workplace through injury prevention management, our podiatrists are talking about your work boots!
The shoes you wear every day become the ground you walk on and can influence your risk of injury and pain. We’ve put together this safety boot fitting guide to help you use your work boots to not only protect your feet from hazards - but also keep you moving well and feeling great on your feet.
Tradies - you feel exhausted at the end of your workday, and we get it. Many of you spend a large portion of your day on your feet, moving around, climbing stairs or ladders, operating machinery and generally tiring your body.
Every step you take can result in significant forces passing through your feet and legs - like a load of up to three times your body weight on your knees. So, it’s no surprise that there are approximately 190 serious workers’ compensation claims made every day - an incidence rate of three times higher than any other occupation.
Onychomycosis is a word that has probably never been used in your household before. As the medical name for fungal nail infections, it might also not be something that gathers much airtime at the family dinner table either. However, while some people may feel embarrassed revealing such a foot condition, there really is nothing taboo about talking about toenails.
