Biomechanical Assessment: When you book an appointment with our podiatrists, they will take a detailed history, perform a physical assessment, use video walking analysis, and take a 3D foot scan to find out what’s causing the pain.
Video Walking Analysis: How you walk means a lot to a podiatrist. There are three basic stages to the human gait cycle, and it is impossible view the detail of this intricate motion with the naked eye. With our computerised video gait analysis, we are able to break each second of the gait cycle into tiny segments (frames), allowing detailed assessment of the patient’s foot position and overall posture.
Custom-made foot orthotics: When your feet need a little extra support, we prescribe custom foot orthotics to help alleviate and prevent foot, ankle, and knee pain and improve your balance and foot function in general. From children to professional sports athletes, My FootDr has helped support thousands of happy feet across the country and is proudly the leading provider of custom foot orthotics in Australia.
Having warts on the bottom of the feet that won’t go away is a frustrating, ongoing problem that can last months or even years. They can make walking unpleasant but also painful. While many people are told that they should just wait for the wart to go away on its own, or to use padding in the meantime that only ever provides a little temporary relief, the reality is that when left untreated, warts can stick around for a very long time.
Ingrown toenails on a woman's foot, pain in the big toe closeup
Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, are a common and painful complaint. A true ingrown toenail is when a spike or edge of nail pierces the skin at the nail edge. This is known as the sulcus and can cause inflammation and even lead to infection.
There are a variety of factors that can cause ingrown toenails. The most common cause is due to improper cutting of your toenail and leaving a spike of nail in the sulcus. It can also be a result of a curved nail, known as an involuted nail, from external pressure.
If you are experiencing pain, redness, and swelling around your toenail, it may be time to consider seeing one of our podiatrists. With over 30 years of combined experience in treating foot and ankle conditions, we have successfully treated many cases of ingrown toenails.
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.
