The only sports and biomechanical foot clinic in Northland. Jennifer Griffin has established herself in Whangarei in 2017 since returning home from Brisbane where she spent 3 years working in a range of podiatry clinics. After realising her passion was in sports podiatry, she decided to come home to begin her own clinic in the North. She works very closely with shoe shops especially Smiths Sports Shoes on Cameron Street so you know exactly what type of shoe you need. Her biggest interest however, is in orthotics. She modifies and insoles of both prefabricated and custom orthoses which she sources from an Australian company she has worked for.
Bachelor of Health Science maj. Podiatry (Hons.)
Three intense years of study plus an additional year for a degree with Honours allowed me to specialise in dynamic postural stability and footwear for my research study.
Ex- New Zealand, regional Hockey Representative
Playing at a high level of sport, specifically New Zealand Hockey and regional olympic weightlifting gives me the extra edge to empathise and know how tough it is to get back into your training regime from injury. Being ACC accredited is an added benefit to my patients as I have the ability to create customised orthoses which will suit most footwear for sport.
