Whether you’re a recreational athlete just looking to stay fit, or a serious competitor looking to push yourself and your performance to the limit, foot and ankle sports injuries are always a concern. They don’t always come as an “ouch!” moment that sends you tumbling to the ground, either. Overuse injuries that grind you down […]
There are many possible injuries and conditions that you can experience in your lower limbs, but not all are equally as likely. At Dallas Podiatry Works, we certainly can provide treatment for rare conditions (like Buerger’s or Kohler’s diseases), but we also see a fair amount of common injuries like ankle sprains. No matter what […]
It’s very frustrating when you can’t do the things you enjoy or even carry out necessary daily tasks. This can be the situation with a foot injury—a hindrance that can make going to the mailbox or taking a shower difficult. Our feet and ankles are so intricately designed, and we often don’t realize the incredible […]
If you have ever worn a pair of sandals, you have probably experienced a tiny rock or pebble getting wedged under your foot. Even the smallest of pebbles can be irritating and cause discomfort, leaving you with no option but to stop and shake it out. There are times however when toe pain arises from […]
When a body part is a different color than normal, it can be a clear indication that something is wrong. Such is the case with black toenails. In this condition, the soft tissue in your nailbed has either become bruised, started bleeding (subungual hematoma), or is possibly displaying a sign of cancer. Fortunately, most of […]
Running is a natural choice when it comes to exercises for burning calories and improving your cardiovascular health. There are certainly an abundance of benefits to be had from this endeavor, but it is high-impact and places stressful forces on your feet and ankles. When you are working out to get into—or stay in—shape, the last […]
When you begin an exercise program, you typically do so to improve your health. Unfortunately, being active increases your risk of injury. Running happens to be one of those great forms of exercise that carries such risk. Runners can potentially develop shin splints, stress fractures, and plantar fasciitis to name just a few possible injuries. […]
Thinking about fitness may conjure up images of early morning infomercials. Programs like Zumba and P90X focus on cardio and strength training for the body. While the feet are subjected to quick, dance inspired steps and the added pressure of training with weights, feet specific exercises are virtually non-existent in these types of workouts. Your […]
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.
