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.

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.
Regardless of your age, activity levels or health status, helping prevent falls is an important part of what we do here at My FootDr.
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.
