Our centres provide the full scope of clinical podiatry including comprehensive foot assessments, various treatments and surgery.
Established in 1986 as the Townsville Podiatry Centre, our My FootDr Townsville clinic is Australia’s largest podiatry clinic providing state of the art facilities normally found only in research centres.
At My FootDr Townsville we provide an array of podiatric services including sports injury management, video gait and computerised F-scan gait analysis, children’s foot and walking disorders, orthotic therapy, medical acupuncture (dry needling), individualised bike and running assessments, diabetic assessment and treatment, as well as general treatment for skin and toenail conditions.
Our podiatrists treat a wide range of foot, ankle and lower leg conditions including heel pain (plantar fasciitis), Achilles Tendinopathy, medial tibial periostitis (shin splints), bunions (hallux valgus), forefoot pain (Morton’s neuroma), foot and ankle sprains, knee pain (e.g. patellofemoral pain syndrome) and sports injuries.
Our patients at My FootDr Townsville receive excellent research-based care in a friendly environment. The team at My FootDr Townsville are active in the community, supporting a number of local sporting teams, running events and community groups.
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.
