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.
Having our toes suddenly turn red can be alarming - especially when we can’t pinpoint a specific cause. Alongside the redness, you may also experience some pain, swelling, and wearing your regular work shoes or joggers may now feel uncomfortable. As the cause of the redness can range from problems with our skin and blood vessels to problems with our muscles and bones, our podiatry team has shared the top five causes of red toes that we see and treat here at My FootDr.
We all know and have experienced that uncomfortable prickling, tingling, numbing sensation that we call pins and needles countless times - but why do we get pins and needles? And what can we do to help make the feeling go away so we can get on with our day?
Today, the My FootDr team are sharing the causes, considerations and treatments for pins and needles in the feet, which we medically refer to as paraesthesia - and there may be a lot more to it than you think!
If you have flat feet, knowing which insoles are right for your feet can be difficult and confusing. There are so many types out there, which may leave you with a lot more questions than answers, like:
How do I tell the difference between the different types of insoles - they all look the same?
Which are the best insoles for me and my feet?
How do I know if the insoles I have now are right for me?
Is my foot or leg pain because of my flat feet?
Am I going to get foot problems because of my flat feet - and would insoles help?
These are great and valid questions, and our podiatrists have set out to answer them all by explaining what having flat feet really mean for you - and where insoles fit into the picture.
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.
