Gavin Daly is an Adelaide Podiatrist who graduated from the University of South Australia in 1991.
Gavin originally commenced practice in South Australia with The Adelaide Sports Sciences Clinic and David Gilbert in 1991. Between 1991 and 1993 Gavin also worked with other South Australian podiatrists including Kaye Halliday and Lyn Keynes. During this time Gavin also provided honorary podiatry advice and services to the Woodville West Torrens Football Club.
In 1993, Gavin commenced private practice in Modbury, South Australia which he privately owned and operated between 1993-1996. Gavin also operated an orthotic laboratory between 1993-1996 in partnership with Kaye Halliday.
In 1996 Adelaide Podiatry Group was founded by Gavin and three other podiatrists – Spiro Vithoulkas, Sean Murphy and Brenton Bowen. Gavin’s role during this partnership included developing and managing South Australia’s first computer aided design and manufacturing (CADCAM) orthotic system, training orthotic laboratory technicians and developing laboratory systems. This role continued until 1998 when the laboratory was then taken over by Tony Dwyer of CAD CAM Orthotics in South Australia.
Gavin also provided honorary podiatry services to the Adelaide Ravens Netball Club between 1998-1999 alongside coach Pat Mickan.
Podiatry Care was established at Ashford Injury Services with partner Spiro Vithoulkas in January 2000 in conjunction with Orthopaedics SA and Northcare Physiotherapy. Podiatry Care was the first podiatry group in SA to:
- Introduce 3D Laser scanning and 3D CAD CAM orthotics to South Australia.
- Receive ATRAD accreditation in ESWT application.
- Introduce fungal nail laser treatment.
- Design and develop a UNIQUE condition specific heel pain treatment program for both adults and children.
Podiatry Care continued servicing clients under the Podiatry Care banner until it was acquired by My FootDr Group (Healthia ASX:HLA) in March 2017. Podiatry Care branches at Modbury, Christies Beach, Moana, Unley and McLaren Vale were acquired by My FootDr while Kaye Halliday retained ownership of Podiatry Care in Gawler.
The name may have changed but many of the faces remained the same. Gavin continued to work for My FootDr both as a Podiatrist and then later as State Manager of the eight South Australian My FootDr podiatry clinics until June 2018.
In July 2018, Gavin decided it was time to satisfy some personal goals in the area of travel and further education. With a passion for providing first class service, patient education and communication, Gavin was presented with an opportunity to enter private practice again in a practice management, marketing and mentoring role at Posture Podiatry in partnership with Podiatrist, Tom Kolesnik.
As a Podiatrist, Gavin had a special interest in heel pain treatment, AFL sports injuries, children’s foot problems, postural complaints and growing pains in children. Gavin’s primary role now involves client communications, digital marketing, content creation, practice management and mentoring Posture Podiatry’s Adelaide Podiatrists.
Gavin will still consult with clients in collaboration with Podiatrists, Tessa Coleman, Will Duncan, Tom Kolesnik and Tess Clisby, whenever a second opinion is required or requested. Appointment bookings with Gavin can only be made via telephone.
Gavin is currently a member of the Australian Podiatry Association and registered with the Podiatry Board of Australia.
