Time Takes a Toll on Your Feet

Your feet change as you age. They grow in multiple dimensions – in length due to less strength in the plantar fascia, but they also spread in width. They change in other ways also. Your skin around your feet becomes thinner as you age. Therefore, shoes that you have been wearing may not provide enough cushioning to keep you comfortable. An athletic type shoe will provide a bit more comfort for an elderly patient.

As you age, your feet lose strength as well as flexibility. This is most noticeable in the plantar fascia an Achilles tendon area. The weakening of muscles and tendons results in increased pronation and most likely pain. To counteract the effects of normal aging, the average person needs a shoe that provides greater support in the arch, better heel control and a slight rise to the heel. Although there may be better choices in shoes available, this is not always enough. At some point you may need the assistance of orthotics or insoles that will help with the gait alterations that occur as you age.

What’s causes my feet to change?

  • Thinning skin
  • Loss of fat pads in heel and ball of foot
  • Increase of fat around ankles
  • Cumulative wear on tendons and ligaments
  • Arthritic changes


Now is the time to see your podiatrist for a complete foot evaluation and assessment of the way you move. Motion control orthotics may be just what you need to help you regain your balance and get pain relief. Custom orthotics are molded specifically to your foot for your individual situation.

Insoles for your Soles is another fantastic treatment option offered at Dallas Podiatry Works. This treatment can restore padding to the ball of your foot so you can wear the latest styles of shoes you see when you window shop! It is an FDA approved filler and we would love to tell you more about it.

Don’t wait any longer! Drs. Brook and Northcutt are highly respected podiatrists and have the ability to offer an accurate diagnosis and solution to your problem. Whether you require insoles, custom orthotics or special shoes, they can help with that determination. Call the Dallas office at (972) 566-7474 or Plano (972) 943-3323 and let’s put an end to your foot pain!

"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
