Our centres provide the full scope of clinical podiatry including comprehensive foot assessments, various treatments and surgery.
The My FootDr Mittagong podiatry clinic (formerly Foot Focus) is located on Bowral Road (100 metres from McDonalds). At our purpose built podiatry clinic, our podiatrists provide you and your family podiatry services for the whole family.
For over 20 years our team has provided the best podiatry services and foot care to Western Sydney and Southern Highlands, including players from the Canberra Raiders and West Tigers.
While our name has changed, rest assured our same dedicated team of podiatrists will continue to care for you and your families foot health using the latest podiatry technology including fungal nail laser therapy and 3D foot scanning for orthotics.
We treat and manage a range of common and complex foot, ankle and lower limb conditions including heel and arch pain (plantar fasciitis), Achilles Tendinopathy, shin splints (medial tibial periostitis), bunions (hallux valgus), forefoot pain (Morton’s neuroma), foot and ankle sprains, knee pain (e.g. patellofemoral pain syndrome) and sports injuries.
Approximately 200,000 Australians are hospitalised every year as a result of having a fall. Bone fractures are the most common type of injury resulting from a fall. While falls are most common in those aged over 65, young males aged 5-24 years are also particularly prone to falls.
Do you have swollen feet or ankles after you’ve been sitting, standing or walking in a hot environment? You’re not alone. Medically known as heat oedema, this uncomfortable swelling generally occurs because the heat from your environment causes your blood vessels to naturally expand (dilate). As they do, fluid can leak into the surrounding tissues. Pair this with gravity encouraging the passage of larger volumes of fluid down into the legs, and you’ve got swollen feet, ankles and even legs.
As with anything, there are a number of extra risk factors that can make you more vulnerable to this swelling, so today, the podiatrists at My FootDr have shared what these are, what you can do to help prevent the swelling before it starts, and how to best manage the swelling if it’s already here.
Dark spots on the toes and feet are both a cause of concern for many patients we see and treat here at My FootDr. From wondering if they’re a sign of something serious, to being aesthetically displeasing, patients often ask us how they can get rid of the discolouration, fast.
To help, our podiatry team has shared the common causes of dark marks we see on the feet and toenails, what they mean, and what can be done to remove them.
o you wake up with a sharp pain in your heel, arch or foot?
Do you get pain the moment you put your feet on the ground and take that first step?
Does the pain tend to ease as you keep walking, but can return when you rest and put your feet up during the day?
Are you one of the 48% of Australians that wakes up with heel pain once a week?
If heel pain is impacting how you move, how you feel, and how you live, then it’s time to get help from My FootDr.
Heel pain, often caused by plantar fasciitis, is a common condition that can cause severe pain at the bottom and inside of the heel. This pain may radiate up into the arch, and indicates that there is some damage to, and subsequent inflammation of, the long band of tissue under the foot known as the plantar fascia.
