The debate over the best running form has gone on for many years. The best way to run is a style that employs good posture, conserves energy, and avoids injuries. Maintain a relaxed, upright position without leaning forward or back, which can strain your neck and core muscles. Keep your shoulders and arms loose—don’t tense […]
Many problems can result in a swollen toe. Traumatic injuries, overuse problems, infections, and other underlying medical conditions can cause inflammation and edema, or fluid build-up in the tissues. The specific cause of your toe pain and swelling depends on your unique feet. Standing or sitting for extended periods of time can cause minor temporary […]
A pinched nerve can cause muscle cramps and other painful symptoms in your legs, especially over time. Usually the trapped nerve is in your lower back, but can be in your leg as well. Then when you’re active, the compressed tissue causes an aching, burning pain in your legs that increases the more you use […]
Anything that traps, compresses, or otherwise squeezes nervous tissue can be what causes pinched nerves in your body. Usually a traumatic injury, inflammation, pre-existing conditions like arthritis, repetitive stress, or weight gain cause some tissue to press against your sensitive nerves. The culprit could be hard bone or cartilage trapping the tissue, or soft connectors […]

Whether the procedure is minor or major, foot surgery requires ample time for proper healing. Even when you can put weight on the foot and resume your activity, you should still be cautious to protect vulnerable bones and/or tissues during a workout.

We don’t often think about our 10 little toes but they can sure grab our attention when they are in pain. Swelling is a result of edema, which is essentially a build-up of fluid.

Metatarsalgia is a condition characterized by tenderness and pain along the ball of your foot.

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.
