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.
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.
