Shoe designers do not seem to be particularly concerned with how their footwear feels when worn. From a certain point of view, this makes sense. When you are looking to buy new high heels, your first sensory experience with them is visual. You see those cute shoes and imagine how they will look on your feet. In that moment, you are not thinking about foot pain or any discomfort they might bring. Well, shoe designers may not consider how your feet feel, but we do!
Dallas Podiatry Works is always here to help you with any foot or ankle condition you may encounter, but we are also able to provide proactive care! Avoid the pain that comes with wearing high heels by coming in for a Loub Job. These simple dermal injections can make it more comfortable for you to wear stylish footwear for formal occasions.
Our office has two FDA-approved, biodegradable fillers (Sculptra and Juvaderm) that can be used. Typically, we use Juvaderm first to give immediate relief, since it is not as long-lasting. If the results are satisfactory, we will likely recommend Sculptra, which provides cushioning for an extended period.
Even with your proactive approach for eliminating foot pain, keep in mind that there are still a variety of conditions that you may experience as a result of wearing high heels. A Loub job may help to avoid metatarsalgia (pain in the forefoot), but you are still at risk of pump bumps, Achilles tendon damage, hammertoes, and ankle injuries. To avoid these conditions, limit the amount of time you spend wearing pumps or stilettos.

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.
