The Fourth of July and feet aren’t a normal pairing but there are a lot of activities that many people are involved in where feet need to be protected in order to stay in the fun. If you are going to attend the Fair Park Fourth for the biggest fireworks display in Dallas, TX take a second before you head out the door to check what you are putting on your feet. For a night when you may be walking longer distances or standing for long periods of time, choose footwear that is going to properly cushion and support your feet. When walking back in the dark after your Fourth of July activities, avoid sandals to keep feet protected from stubs and cuts.
There are several Independence Day parades around Texas, and sitting for long periods in the hot sun could cause painful sunburns. Many people often forget about their feet when applying sunscreen. Protect your feet from the sun as they are just as susceptible to burns and skin cancer as any other part of your body.
Another great way to celebrate this holiday would be to join in on the UP Firecracker Fun Run. This 5K run is open to all ages and takes place in Curtis Park, Dallas, TX. If you have never tried a race before, stop in and see foot specialists Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, and McClurkin to get your feet ready. Based in Dallas and Plano, TX they can assess your foot health, diagnose any problems to be aware of and give advice on the best footwear for your feet.
It is never fun to have a fun holiday ruined by foot pain or injury. No matter what you end up doing on the Fourth of July, think of your feet and have fun! If you have any foot pain or sustain an injury, please call our podiatric office at 972.853.7100 in Dallas, TX or (972) 943-3323 in Plano, TX or ask our foot and ankle experts your questions online.
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.
