The Mackay clinic was Balance Podiatry’s very first location, opening in 2002 at Sydney Street. Soon after, the podiatry clinic and shoe store moved to the much larger Victoria Street premises where it remains today. The Mackay clinic grew quickly into one of Australia’s largest and busiest podiatry clinics and formed the template for success that the brand has achieved. In 2014, the clinic and shoe store underwent a much deserved re-fit including the purchase of new technology such as laser for fungal nails and updated 3D foot scanners.
Our focus in Mackay has always been to deliver a premium podiatry and orthotic service to the community which continues on today with our new podiatry staff. Balance Podiatry would like to thank the Mackay community for their continued support and loyalty.
The practice is serviced by Nathan Montgomery who joined the practice in early 2014, Lachie Crawford (2016) and new team member Claire Simpson,who joined the business from my FootDr podiatry centre Mackay. She has worked in the area since 2011, and has a passion for all areas of podiatry, with a particular interest in sports medicine and lower limb biomechanics. Our Podiatry team is supported by our friendly receptionist and shoe specialists.
