It’s no big secret that leading an active life and getting regular exercise are pillars for a healthy lifestyle. In our greater Dallas-Fort Worth community, there are many options when it comes to staying active. You might meet up with runners in the Dallas Running Club, participate in sports offered by the Dallas Sport and Social Club, or sign up at any of the countless local gyms in the area.
No matter which option you choose, you can improve your cardiovascular conditioning, stay in (or get down to) a healthy bodyweight, and even sleep better at night. Of course, there is always the risk that you sustain an injury, including midfoot injuries from sports, but this might not be as bad you might think.
Now, some sports injuries tend to receive more of the limelight than others. Sprained ankles, turf toe, and shin splints are ones that often come to mind, but midfoot injuries also can happen during physical activities. These include:
First aid is important if you sustain a midfoot injury in a game or practice, but so is coming in to see our foot doctors for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan as soon as you can. We are proud to provide exceptional care for all foot and ankle injuries.

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.
