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.

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.
