We don’t often think about our 10 little toes but they can sure grab our attention when they are in pain. Swelling is a result of edema, which is essentially a build-up of fluid. There are many reasons why you may experience a swollen toe or toe pain, which often accompanies swelling.
First, the duration and severity of the swelling will depend on the cause. If you bumped your toe in the night and injured it, the swelling is a response for healing. A broken or sprained toe will also result in swelling. Standing or even sitting for long periods of time can lead to an accumulation of fluid in your feet and toes.
Severe swelling or swelling that develops slowly and persists over time could indicate an underlying medical condition. If bleeding or signs of infection are present, that also warrants seeking immediate medical attention.
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.
