Have you ever thought of taking a leap on a flying trapeze? If you live in Dallas, TX you can! Skyline Trapeze welcomes aerial arts enthusiasts of all skill levels—or those brave enough to try—to come out for a session. Whether it is taking to the air, running on the ground in a local 5K race, or even a workout at the gym, it is not easy to stay active if you have nagging heel pain. There are many reasons heel discomfort can develop, but with the right treatment from Dallas Podiatry Works, you can maintain an active lifestyle without it.
Heel pain can occur from Achilles tendonitis, bursitis, a fracture, a heel spur, pinched nerve, arthritis, or plantar fasciitis, to name a few of the many causes. Depending on the nature of your condition or injury, it is often wise to take some time off from activity to give the area a chance to heal. Apply ice packs to the area, and we can recommend the right anti-inflammatory medication to control any swelling. With a heel injury, you don’t have to give up an active lifestyle altogether; you just may need to make some modifications. Avoiding high impact activities can keep your discomfort to a minimum and help prevent re-injury. Cross train with swimming and cycling, both of which are great forms of exercise that will boost your heart rate and keep your body lean and strong.
You can reduce the impact on your feet with the use of inserts or custom orthoticsin your shoes, too. They not only work to keep your feet stabilized and supported, but also offer extra cushioning to help absorb shock each time your foot strikes the ground. With plantar fasciitis, splints worn at night can also prepare your feet for the next day’s plans, as well as stretching and strengthening exercises.
We want you enjoying your life to the fullest, so contact Dallas Podiatry Works if you have been suffering with heel pain. Call Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, and McClurkin in Dallas, TX at 972.853.7100 or in Plano, TX at (972) 943-3323 for an appointment today.
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.
