Dallas, TX, Foot Specialist Recommends Proper Footwear

dallas tx foot specialistIf you suffer from foot pain that is caused by lack of arch support or ill-fitting shoes, there are options to alleviate it! Whether you have flat feet, high arches, or wide feet, there are special shoes available to reduce your discomfort. Since these issues can lead to more serious foot problems, such as calluses and hammertoes, it is important to take care of them early. Our Dallas, TX, foot specialist explains more below. 

Symptoms, Causes, & Effects

Pain in the arches and heel of your foot can be caused by ill-fitting shoes and lack of arch support. Some causes of this pain include:

  • Wearing sandals or other flat shoes with flat feet, as it puts strain on your arches
  • Wearing heels with high arches, which forces your foot forward in the shoe, leading to hammertoes
  • Shoes that are too tight on wide feet, causing calluses or overlapping toes

These problems can all be prevented by wearing therapeutic shoes, orthotics, or shoes that accommodate your feet. 

Special Shoes & Orthotics

There are certain shoes designed for structural foot differences that lead to foot pain. If you have wide or extra narrow feet, search for brands that sell wider than average shoes or extra narrow shoes. Another option is a specialty shoe that adds extra support for your feet, such as Vionic® shoes.

If you have a structural issue, our podiatrist can also help you get custom orthotic inserts for your current shoes to relieve stress on your arches. 

Other Considerations

If you have foot pain that is severe or doesn’t seem to be caused by a structural issue, especially if it is accompanied by redness or swelling, contact our podiatrist as soon as possible. Foot pain can sometimes be serious and early treatment for more serious conditions is critical.

Your Top-Rated Podiatrist in Dallas & Beyond

The doctor has great “bedside manners” when talking to patients. Great staff and comfortable atmosphere.

Derrick W.

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.

Joseph B.

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.

Jeannette H.

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.
