New name. New look. Same great team!
Balance Podiatry has changed our name to My FootDr. Since 2002, we have been helping Mackay locals care for their feet, providing the best podiatry services and footwear at our clinic located at 153 Victoria St, Mackay.
Our Mackay podiatry clinic and shoe store now has a new look with new signage and a fresh coat of paint.
Rest assured, that the same friendly faces you have grown to know and trust will continue as your foot health care professionals, providing you with the best service and latest technology.
Our focus in Mackay has always been to deliver a premium podiatry and orthotic service to the community. My FootDr and Balance Podiatry would like to thank the Mackay community for their continued support and loyalty.
The podiatry clinic is home to podiatrist Lachie Crawford who joined the practice in early 2016. He is supported by a team of local podiatrists who all have a passion for all areas of podiatry, with a particular interest in sports medicine and lower limb biomechanics. Our Podiatry team is supported by our friendly receptionist and shoe specialists.

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.
