Pain is the enemy of feet, according to Todd Pinsky, DPM. When it comes to common foot problems, it is important to obtain knowledge from several resources to know how to best care for your feet. Thanks to a massive, information-rich website for Dr. Pinsky's Family Foot Center in Boca Raton, Florida, many patients can be better informed about foot pain.

Although this is a digital step forward for podiatry, the doctor insists this website is not a reason to avoid a physician's care when it comes to foot ailments. "By providing increased educational materials, I invite my patients to explore various foot and ankle topics to better understand the health of their feet," Pinsky said.

This resource is an innovative tool for those who are seeking relief and knowledge when they don't have immediate access to their podiatrist, seeing as the educational online library is available 24/7 for patients to explore extensive sections on foot-related issues.

According to Pinksy's website, preventative care is key to stopping a bunion from progressing. His recommended methods of choice for bunion relief are toe-stretching exercises and a bunion night splint, especially for young patients who are showing signs of growth.
