PODIATRY IN DARWIN

Conveniently located within Movement for Life Physiotherapy in Coconut Grove, Darwin, Swan Podiatry and Orthotics is a small private clinic established to provide specialist foot, ankle and lower limb care. We provide a range of personalised services aimed at treating the patient as a whole and helping each person to live a happier, healthier and more active lifestyle, free from pain.

Our podiatry services implement best practices and new technologies that allow us to provide top of the line care. During your initial appointment we discuss your issue in depth, taking into account your health history and symptoms so we can get a thorough understanding of any pain you may be dealing with. 

 

We’ll do assessments of the feet and legs while standing, moving and in our clinic chair so we can find out the underlying cause of the issue and can create a management plan to suit. Further testing may be needed, such as a referral for x-ray or ultrasound, to determine the exact cause of symptoms. Please bring in the footwear you wear most often (eg. for work or sport) along with any previous orthotics. 

 

On-the-spot claiming with private health insurance is available if the cover includes appropriate podiatry extras, which means you only need to pay the remaining gap. If you are referred by a doctor, please bring in either a Medicare or DVA card as this may be required.

Our main clinic is ideally locationed for those living in Darwin and suburbs, with satelite clinics established to help service the Coolalinga and rural areas and Katherine.

WHAT IS PODIATRY?

Many people are unaware of what a podiatrist is and which services they can provide. A podiatrist is an Allied Health Professional who specialises in the medical care, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the foot, ankle and lower limb.


No referral is required to see a private podiatrist however, a doctor may refer directly if needed. Podiatrists can treat children’s foot pain, assess people with diabetes, investigate abnormal foot mechanics and manage skin and nail conditions, including ingrown toenail surgery.

WHAT ARE ORTHOTICS?

It’s all too common for people to put up with foot pain and delay visiting a podiatrist because they assume the pain is ‘normal’. A visit to a podiatry clinic is required if any pain or discomfort is present in the feet or legs. Pain should not be normalised, there are a range of podiatry services available to treat the symptoms.

Common problems include heel and arch pain, shin splints, sprained ankles, flat feet, bunions, knee discomfort and Achilles pain. Treatment options available can include different types of strappings, foot mobilisation and custom orthotics.

FOOT PAIN

Foot pain is never normal. We’ll do a range of tests to get to the bottom of your discomfort and help you find relief at last with targeted treatments.
