When something is wrong with our eyes or our teeth, most of us quickly head to the eye doctor or dentist to get the problem fixed. There is something different with foot pain, it seems, that keeps people from getting it taken care of. At Dallas Podiatry Works, we have seen many people over the years come in for help after having lived with foot pain for too long! Many foot problems are progressive, meaning they worsen over time without the right treatment. We offer a myriad of treatment options for all foot problems and conditions, but one that is very helpful for many kinds of foot ailments is custom orthotics.
Foundationally, orthotics are shoe inserts. You may have seen generic inserts at a store that promote their ability to make your feet more comfortable. Custom orthotics go beyond this for a couple of reasons. First, they are designed and specially made for your feet. This is crucial because a one-size-fits-all insert most often will not do the job that your feet need them to. The area in which your feet need extra support, cushioning or stabilization depends on your foot type and structure. Second, custom orthotics are made to address your particular gait problems, and thus they are more effective in controlling pain and preventing injury. Functional orthotics control the movement of your foot to alleviate pain, while accommodative orthotics are softer in nature and used more for cushioning where your foot needs them.
Are you tired of having foot pain and ready to try a pair of orthotics? Contact Dallas Podiatry Works today to make an appointment with Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo and McClurkin. We can identify the root of your problem and set you on a path to living pain free. Call our office in Dallas, TX at (972) 853-7100 or in Plano, TX at (972) 943-3323.
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.
