What we can help with:
Heel Pain: One of the most common foot problems, plantar fasciitis, can be treated in a variety of ways. Let us help you get back on your feet as soon as possible.
Diabetic Footcare: Feet are for life, and diabetic foot complications can threaten this. Lower the risk of serious injury with our advanced foot screenings, treatments and orthopaedic footwear.
Fungal Nail Laser Treatment: Fungal Nails affects 10% of the population. Don’t waste time with paint-on treatments. Treat fungal nail once and for all with laser treatment. Our podiatrist Tom is a highly trained laser technician and has helped with hundreds of cases of Onychomycosis.
Sports Podiatry: If you have sore feet after exercise, walking or playing a round of golf we can help. Our biomechanical assessment helps us to diagnose and find the cause of your heel, arch, foot or lower limb pain.
Children’s Podiatry: Children’s feet are different to that of adults. When they are young, their bones are still very soft and are therefore more easily affected by abnormal pressure and forces. It is important to nurture our children’s feet as most of the issues we see in adults have stemmed from issues as children.

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.
The team at My FootDr Hope Island is helping little feet stay healthy with the introduction of children’s foot screenings at local childcare centres.
