Shoes That Might Give You Heel Pain

Shoes That Might Give You Heel Pain dallas podiatristOur goal here at Dallas Podiatry Works is to take away any foot, ankle, or heel pain you may experience, but we would rather know that you were able to avoid it in the first place! There are two ways that we can do so: identify painful shoes that increase your risk for discomfort or use dermal injections to make it more comfortable to wear stylish shoes.

Any Plano, TX podiatrist worth his weight will make sure you know that high-heeled shoes like stilettos, pumps, and wedges shift pressure forward to the balls of your feet, which can create balance problems. This also can contribute to the pain caused by toe deformities like bunions and hammertoes. The excessive height also causes issues for your Achilles tendon and the nerves in the front of your foot.

Painful heels are not the only problem that footwear can cause. Flip-flops and sandals, particularly those that do not offer adequate support, may lead to plantar fasciitis. Ballet flats also have little-to-no support and lack the cushioning your feet need to handle the tremendous amounts of pressure faced in the 10,000 steps an average person takes during the course of a day.

As we mentioned, one way to avoid heel pain and foot issues is to avoid certain styles of shoes, but the other is to have proactive treatment performed in the form of dermal injections. Our office provides a service that is becoming affectionately known as a “Loub Job” that provides extra cushioning for your feet. This allows you to comfortably wear shoe styles that would otherwise be quite painful for you.

Our dermal injection therapy consists of one of two different FDA-approved fillers and enhances the natural padding on the bottoms of your feet. The procedure itself is rather easy and can provide immediate benefits for you.

We can help you by providing more information, treating an issue that is causing you heel pain, or taking a proactive approach and using dermal injections to prevent painful conditions. No matter which path works best for you, call Dallas Podiatry Works toll free at 972.566.7474. You can also use our online form to request your appointment at either our Plano or Dallas, TX offices today!

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"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 care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
