If you want to get the most out of your cycling then a podiatry check at my FootDr is essential. At my FootDr our cycling assessment ethos is by cyclists for cyclists, so you will only be seen by a road cyclist and senior podiatrist that knows your sport. Cycling isn’t just a sport that involves a lot of repetitive strain, it is a culture and a way of life. That’s why you can’t afford to be off the bike! If you are an up and coming young rider looking for a competitive edge, or more of a coffee shop rider looking for ultimate comfort and injury prevention, we can help.

my FootDr podiatry centres is an accredited partner of several cycling orthotics brands. We specialise in fitting these high qualities, performance-enhancing orthotics. As the orthotic devices are fully custom made, they may qualify for health insurance rebates and in many cases our patients have only a small out-of-pocket expense.
