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 our toes suddenly turn red can be alarming - especially when we can’t pinpoint a specific cause. Alongside the redness, you may also experience some pain, swelling, and wearing your regular work shoes or joggers may now feel uncomfortable. As the cause of the redness can range from problems with our skin and blood vessels to problems with our muscles and bones, our podiatry team has shared the top five causes of red toes that we see and treat here at My FootDr.
We all know and have experienced that uncomfortable prickling, tingling, numbing sensation that we call pins and needles countless times - but why do we get pins and needles? And what can we do to help make the feeling go away so we can get on with our day?
Today, the My FootDr team are sharing the causes, considerations and treatments for pins and needles in the feet, which we medically refer to as paraesthesia - and there may be a lot more to it than you think!
If you have flat feet, knowing which insoles are right for your feet can be difficult and confusing. There are so many types out there, which may leave you with a lot more questions than answers, like:
How do I tell the difference between the different types of insoles - they all look the same?
Which are the best insoles for me and my feet?
How do I know if the insoles I have now are right for me?
Is my foot or leg pain because of my flat feet?
Am I going to get foot problems because of my flat feet - and would insoles help?
These are great and valid questions, and our podiatrists have set out to answer them all by explaining what having flat feet really mean for you - and where insoles fit into the picture.
