Leaders in Orthotics and Podiatry
Your Podiatrist In Darwin
Swan Podiatry and Orthotics is a deliberately small, private podiatry clinic established to provide specialist foot, ankle and lower limb care. We provide tailored, personalised services aimed at treating the patient, from elite athletes to people just wanting to start exercising.
The foot is an amazingly complex structure allowing us to perform many everyday functions that we tend to take for granted- until something goes wrong. It is therefore crucial for us to seek expert advice to help in keeping us happy, healthy and pain-free.
Swan Podiatry is conveniently located within Movement for Life Physiotherapy in Coconut Grove, Darwin. Our main clinic is ideal for those living in Darwin and its suburbs, with a weekly satellite clinic established to help service Katherine and other surrounding rural and remote regions.
Our podiatry services apply 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, making sure you are listened to, and that your treatment goals align with what we can provide. We will do assessments of the feet and legs while standing, moving and sitting so we can find out the underlying cause of the issue and can create a management plan to suit. We may require referring for further imaging to determine the exact cause of symptoms, such as an x-ray or ultrasound. HICAPS terminals in all clinics allow on-the-spot claiming with private health insurance, which means you only need to pay the remaining gap. We accept referrals from Medicare and DVA if you have a valid referral from your GP.
If you have injured yourself playing sport or simply have painful feet, a biomechanics assessment is aimed to find the specific bony or soft tissue structure involved in causing pain in your feet or legs. We’ll examine your feet, check joint range of motion and provide video gait analysis and additional tests.
