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.

Having warts on the bottom of the feet that won’t go away is a frustrating, ongoing problem that can last months or even years. They can make walking unpleasant but also painful. While many people are told that they should just wait for the wart to go away on its own, or to use padding in the meantime that only ever provides a little temporary relief, the reality is that when left untreated, warts can stick around for a very long time.

Ingrown toenails, also known as onychocryptosis, are a common and painful complaint. A true ingrown toenail is when a spike or edge of nail pierces the skin at the nail edge. This is known as the sulcus and can cause inflammation and even lead to infection.
There are a variety of factors that can cause ingrown toenails. The most common cause is due to improper cutting of your toenail and leaving a spike of nail in the sulcus. It can also be a result of a curved nail, known as an involuted nail, from external pressure.
If you are experiencing pain, redness, and swelling around your toenail, it may be time to consider seeing one of our podiatrists. With over 30 years of combined experience in treating foot and ankle conditions, we have successfully treated many cases of ingrown toenails.
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.
