Your feet are incredibly designed, able to withstand extreme amounts of stress. During exercise, the impact that your feet have to endure can result in pain and discomfort. Arch pain is a common complaint treated at Dallas Podiatry Works in Dallas, TX. Foot specialists, Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, and McClurkin, help athletes and fitness enthusiasts on a regular basis who come in with pain in their instep.
Your arches are designed to be shock absorbers for your feet. There are several factors that can cause pain in this area. Three predominant reasons for arch pain involve the anatomy of your feet, your footwear and the types of activities you are doing. Your feet may have a flattened arch or a high arch. If you are experiencing bouts of pain during or after exercise, you may be wearing a shoe that is not properly supporting your foot structure. Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, and McClurkin can advise you on the best shoe for your feet. The shoes you wear during the day can stress your feet as well. Some find that shoes with a bit of a heel feel better when they have heel or arch pain, but wear these judiciously. Orthotics worn in the shoes are often helpful in providing long term relief of arch pain.
High impact activities that involve running and jumping have a significant impact on your feet. Repetitive stress in combination with foot structure and poor footwear could be the reason for sore arches. Plantar fasciitis is also a common reason for arch pain. This is when the plantar fascia, a strong band of tissue that runs along your arch, becomes inflamed and sore.

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.
