Dallas is home to a vibrant, active running community. If you are looking to increase your level of physical activity, improve cardiovascular conditioning, and make some new friends, then perhaps the Dallas Running Club (DRC) is a good fit for you. At Dallas Podiatry Works, we want you to have the right equipment as you hit the streets and trails. Comfortable running shoes and moisture-wicking socks are more obvious components of that, but there is a good chance you will also need orthotics.

Running Without PainWhat are orthotics, you ask? They are special inserts designed to slide inside your running shoes and help improve your biomechanics. A majority of the population has either flat feet or high arches and these devices can help reduce the negative implications of either condition. Customized versions differ from inserts that you can purchase from the store in the fact that they are prescribed and made specifically for your feet.

In addition to improving biomechanics, orthotics can be used to treat other ailments that lead to sore feet. If you have bunions, or suffer from Morton’s neuroma or plantar fasciitis, orthotic devices may help to alleviate symptoms of these conditions. Dallas Podiatry Works can help you determine if these customized inserts are right for you.

If you experience sore feet when you run, but cannot come up with any reason why you would, it’s entirely possible that your biomechanics are being thrown off by arches that are either too high or essentially non-existent. Schedule an appointment with Dallas Podiatry Works, at either of our offices, and have Dr. Joel W. Brook or Dr. David R. Northcutt examine your feet and prescribe orthotics that work for you. Call our Dallas office at (972) 566-7474 or our Plano office at (972) 943-3323. You can also reach us toll free at (888) 716-5283. Give us a call today and get the foot care you need to run pain-free.
