Sometimes finding out exactly how things work from the inside out makes us appreciate them that much more. “Animal Inside Out” is a special event at the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, TX until February 17th, 2014. Visitors will be able to take an “anatomical” safari of some of the world’s most spectacular creatures. This one is definitely a must see!
When we are afflicted by foot pain, it is wonderful that we have the advances in medicine to be able to get an inside look and find exactly what is going on. Heel pain in particular can be tricky, because there are several reasons that it can develop. We often blame getting older as the reason for foot pain and thus just put up with it. Foot pain is never normal, and it is always worth getting to the bottom of it.
One of the most common causes for heel pain is plantar fasciitis. If just stepping out of bed in the morning is leaving you hobbling with pain, this condition is likely the root of your discomfort. It occurs when the band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot becomes damaged and inflamed. When your Achilles tendon endures a lot of strain, tendonitis can result, which often causes pain in the heel as well. Another less common reason for heel pain is a condition called tarsal tunnel syndrome. This occurs when the tibial nerve that runs down the back of the leg to the ankle becomes compressed. If you are involved in a sport with a lot of running and jumping, your heel pain could even be from a stress fracture.
Don’t just attribute foot pain to aging or regard it as something you have to live with. If you have heel pain, contact Dallas Podiatry Works so we can find the cause and provide you with the right treatment. Make an appointment with Dr. Joel W. Brook, Dr. David R.

The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.
The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of foot care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Brook to anyone with foot problems–especially problems that stump other podiatrists. He really is very caring and very knowledgeable.
Dr. Joel Brook and the staff were nice and helpful. Though I was a new patient, I got right in as soon as they were open in my preferred location. They diagnosed the problem and provided medicines along with a perfect gel bandage so I could keep exercising while my toes healed. My toes already hurt less and look a little better each day. If I have future issues, I will be a repeat customer. Here’s hoping I don’t, but at least I know my feet are in good hands.
I visited this office for an ingrown toe nail a few years ago. After seeing another doctor, who made it worse, he referred me to Dallas Podiatry Works. The doctor there was able to fix my problem. I’m not great with reviews, all I can tell you is that this doctor and staff will have you up and running or doing whatever it is you do in no time. You will be in great hands. You’d be a fool not to use this doctor. Now its time to visit him again for the other toe.
Been having bad ankle pains for 6 months was referred here and it was a great visit ladies in the front desk medical assistants and the Doctor were all very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
