Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
FootSmart, a top 200 internet retailer of comfort footwear and lower body health products, announces the launch of its FootSmart Health Resource Center. Partnering with The Podiatry Institute, FootSmart has assembled the most current information about foot and lower body ailments so that readers can better understand those ailments in order to shop smarter and move more comfortably.
This information center is the newest initiative of Footsmart, the company recognized for pioneering smart solutions for foot and lower body health. The FootSmart Health Resource Center will be located on the FootSmart.com website or can be accessed directly at footsmart.com/health-resource-center.
“As a company dedicated to offering expertly-selected comfort products for foot and lower body health, providing this information was the perfect extension of our existing site,” says Alan Beychok, CEO and founder of FootSmart. “When your feet, legs or back hurt, it can effect just about everything else you do. Our goal is to inform our readers about the causes of many lower foot and leg problems so they can find the right ways to help relieve that pain.”
The new FootSmart Health Resource Center will provide visitors with current articles, videos and diagrams regarding feet, legs and back health. Along with a description of the condition, causes will be described, as well as suggested solutions for pain relief and prevention. Visitors to the site can find answers to questions about many common ailments, including heel pain, arch pain, plantar fasciitis, bunions, hammertoes, knee pain and more.
Information can be obtained by entering the name of the ailment or by identifying the location of the problem. While answers are not intended to replace the advice of medical professions, the content can help customers ask informed questions and gather knowledge about their health.
The Podiatry Institute, a non-profit organization recognized for its leading role in developing and advancing podiatric medicine and surgery, has partnered with FootSmart to provide sound medical information for foot ailments.
