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.

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.
