TORONTO FOOT CLINIC PRODUCES EDUCATIONAL VIDEO FOR PATIENTS
posted: Jan 07, 2014.
At Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics we are always looking for ways to educate our patients. We found than many of our patients were not aware in many cases the wide variety of foot conditions that our Chiropodist can and do treat. I have therefore enlisted my videographer to produce a screen-saver to educate our patients when they are in the treatment rooms having a foot soak or physical therapy. This I think will be a great method to passively educate our patients about foot health and the vast array of conditions that my Foot Clinic treats. Below are some of the quotes we will use with footage of the office, equipment and foot Specialists.
