Toe Pain & Cycling

Cycling takes the second spot as the most popular outdoor activity in the United States. It’s an activity that anyone can participate in, it has been shown to lower the risk of breast cancer in women, and countries with the most cycling and walking have the lowest obesity rates.

Are there risks to my feet while cycling?

Despite the many advantages and benefits of getting on two wheels, there can be some dangers if you are not informed and careful. One injury that can creep up on you is toe pain. Whether it is mild or severe, toe pain while cycling can make each turn of the pedal a task and cut your ride short.

Drs. Joel Brook, Arroyo, and McClurkin are foot specialists who often treat foot pain and injuries in athletes. A complaint they hear from cycling patients involves experiencing hot feet or a burning pain in the ball of their foot up into their toes. This toe pain comes from the demand on feet while cycling.  Nerves between the metatarsal bones can be squeezed resulting in radiating pain and burning sensations.

What can cause toe pain while cycling?

  • Long rides
  • Riding in a high gear
  • Frequently riding uphill
  • Shoes that are too tight – Feet can swell during the course of a ride causing pressure on your toes.
  • Pedals that are too small can also concentrate stress on your toes and the ball of your foot.
  • A bike that is too big or too small can cause improper riding techniques leading to foot pain

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.
