Whether you are a Dallas, TX resident or just visiting the city, be sure to check out the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. Since opening its doors in December 2012, the museum has become a valuable educational resource for the community. There are 11 permanent exhibit halls. If you suffer from an issue like plantar fasciitis, though, the thought of exploring the 180,000 square foot facility might not sound like a great way to spend the day. Fortunately, it doesn’t take a world-famous sleuth to uncover the mystery for getting the treatment you need!
Plantar fasciitis is a condition that causes sharp, shooting pain first thing in the morning and then throughout the day after you spend periods of time sitting or standing. It can develop due to various root causes, including shoes with inadequate support, obesity, running, and faulty arch structures.
When it comes time to treating your heel pain, one of the possible methods we may employ is the use of orthotics. It is important to note that these medically-prescribed devices are not the same as shoe inserts that you can purchase at nationwide pharmacies and retail stores. Those products certainly can provide extra cushioning and even some arch support, but they cannot correct medical conditions. Custom-made orthotics, on the other hand, are intended to fix biomechanical issues that lead to problems.
Orthotic inserts can be constructed to relieve the stretching and stress on your plantar fascia that you would otherwise experience when walking or standing. Some of these devices help to correct pronation issues that result in plantar fasciitis, while others help absorb and spread the forces that come with taking a step, thereby easing pressure on your heel.

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.
