Let’s take a look at the various injuries at the midfoot region known as the Lisfranc joint complex, how they can develop, and what symptoms can be experienced.
In most instances, a midfoot injury develops in response to an abnormal twisting motion in the foot. It is usually sustained when your foot is flexed downward and you stumble over the top of it, often during a sporting event or activity. Some cases happen as the result of direct trauma, such as a fall from a height, and these tend to be more severe than those that happen from low-energy incidents.
A swollen top of the foot, bruising (on the both the top and bottom of the foot), and pain that worsens while walking or even standing are some of the symptoms that will indicate that you have sustained one of these midfoot 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.
