Educational Resources Help Improve Patient Knowledge of Foot and Ankle Health Care -- Dr. Neal Frankel, Oakbrook, IL podiatrist, wants patients to become more educated about their feet by increasing the availability of helpful educational resources. --
CHICAGO, IL, March 06, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- While many people stay up to date on general health news affecting their bodies, not enough people spend time learning about what's going on down below with the feet and ankles. According to a New York Times report, approximately 75 percent of Americans have experienced foot pain at some point in their lives, mostly due to bad shoes (Foot Pain In-Depth Report). But despite this statistic, there still isn't much readily available information about foot care. To help improve patient knowledge, Dr. Neal Frankel, Oakbrook, IL podiatrist, is now offering educational resources via his practice website.
Chicago, IL podiatrist, Dr. Neal Frankel understands the needs of his patients, and wants to make more educational resources available to improve patient knowledge about foot and ankle issues. A section of his website (http://www.afootandanklecenter.com) is dedicated to providing patients with educational resources about feet and the general practice of podiatry.
Dr. Neal Frankel, podiatrist in Chicago, of A Foot & Ankle Centre is a foot specialist who helps patients with a wide variety of needs, including flat feet, bunions, heel spurs, hammertoes, ankle sprains and sports injuries. After attending the Illinois College of Podiatric Medicine and completing his residency at Chicago Center Hospital, he settled in at his practice in Illinois -- he currently has thriving offices in Chicago, Oakbrook and Lincolnwood.
Dr. Frankel frequently treats people who are clueless about foot and ankle issues -- their causes, symptoms and potential dangers. The educational resources available through his website offer patients improved access to important information, such as Swiss Tech Bunion Surgery in Lincolnwood.
"The most powerful tool that I have to offer my patients is more knowledge about their conditions. The more they understand about their feet, the better their chances of healing from existing issues and protecting their feet from future injuries," said Dr. Neal Frankel, a Chicago podiatrist.
