Our centres provide the full scope of clinical podiatry including comprehensive foot assessments, various treatments and surgery.
At My FootDr Tweed Heads, our podiatrists provide our patients with innovative podiatry solutions so they’re not limited by foot pain and can enjoy a happier better life. Our Tweed Heads podiatry clinic is modern, spacious and is staffed by our own caring team of accredited podiatrists and podiatry assistants and the latest podiatry equipment including video gait analysis and 3D foot scanners.
Our podiatrists can help treat a wide range of foot, ankle and lower leg conditions from common skin and nail problems including ingrown nails, corns and callus, bunion and fungal toenails. Plus we specialise in treating 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.
We have been looking after the podiatry needs of the Tweed Heads region for over 30 years including areas such as Terranora, Banora Point, Murwillumbah, Condong, Nunderi, Casuarina, Pottsville, Kingscliff, Coolangatta, Kirra and even down to Mullumbimby!
Our aim is to care for you as we would care for our own family. You will be treated courteously, with respect, and not be rushed. We promise to listen to you, understand your needs and give you the information you need to make your own decisions about your health.
All podiatrists in our professional and friendly team go through a minimum of 40 hours per year of CDP (Continuing Professional Development) outside of their normal working hours. You are assured that they are exceptionally well trained to look after all your needs.

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.
