BENTONVILLE, AR, December 29, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Social media has become one of the most impactful tools in the history of mankind. In fact, as of 2013 it has been determined that social media is the number one activity on the Internet. So chances are, when someone goes online they are logging onto Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or another social media website.
Doctors and practitioners are jumping on this new trend. Bentonville podiatrist Dr. Bryan M. Sheehan ("The Footman") of Ankle & Foot Centers of Mid-America in Bentonville AR has fully integrated his practice to communicate with potential and existing patients through the major social media websites, including Twitter and Facebook. On his new online pages he plans to provide blog posts, information about foot care, and the goings on of his practice.
A podiatrist is a special doctor who diagnoses and treats problems related to the feet. That includes bunions, foot injuries, heel spurs and even ingrown toenails. Many people don't realize how important this branch of medicine is -- each of your feet has 26 bones, 33 joints and over 100 tendons. Your feet take on all of the weight of your body and you walk on them for hours and hours each day. Athletes are particularly vulnerable to foot related issues because they do so much running, jumping and twisting on a dime.
Dr. Sheehan wants to reach out to people of all ages in the area who may not understand what's going on with their feet. Social media is a natural way to achieve this goal. It gives him an instant way to send updates and information to a fairly large group of people, all at once.
Being a part of a social network also allows Dr. Sheehan and his staff to develop closer connections with the community. For instance, Twitter and Facebook provide a simple format where people who have questions about foot problems to "Ask the Doctor." Some people prefer to ask questions about the issues they're experiencing before scheduling an appointment to have it looked at. Dr. Sheehan understands the value of staying connected with the community at large.

Some people choose to endure foot pain instead of having problems looked at by a professional. Thanks to social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, more Bentonville area patients can now learn about podiatry and common issues directly from Dr. Sheehan and his skilled staff.
