Metatarsalgia is a condition characterized by sharp aching and sometimes burning pain right behind the toes. Other distinguishing characteristics manifest themselves such as:
On occasion you may experience a numbness or pins and needles sensation in your toes. You are more apt to develop Metatarsalgia if you:
Metatarsalgia is not usually serious although any foot ailment that can sideline you should be taken seriously. It may not require medical treatment, but you may wish to try the following to see if symptoms ease up:
If you’ve tried resting the affected foot for a couple of days and are not getting relief from your pain, consider a visit to Dr. Brook or Dr. Northcutt. If left untreated Metatarsalgia can cause pain in other parts of the foot or other locations in the body such as knees, hips and lower back. Other foot problems have similar symptoms as Metatarsalgia, so in addition to your doctor’s examination of your foot, further diagnostic tests, such as x-rays, may be required to rule out other possible problems like stress fractures and confirm the diagnosis.
Only qualified physicians like Drs. Brook and Northcutt can determine the exact cause of your foot pain. Call Dallas Podiatry Works for an appointment at (972) 566-7474 in Dallas or (972) 943-3323 Baylor/Plano. You supply the sore feet and they’ll supply the remedy!
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.
