It’s National Wiggle Your Toes Day!

National Wiggle Your Toes Day is August 6th and it is a day to honor the amazing feats our toes accomplish! Here are a few interesting facts to prove how important these little digits can be:

  • Your toenails can hold clues to your overall health.
  • One of the NFL’s best linebackers, Jack Lambert eventually lost his career to a toe injury.
  • In 2008, Jessica Cox, a 25-year-old woman born without arms became the first pilot licensed to fly with her feet.
  • The foot contains ¼ of the bones in the human body and 14 bones work together to form your toes, which enable you to stand and walk!

national wiggle your toes dayIt is important to keep your feet in shape, so on this special day take the opportunity to truly wiggle your toes! Drs. Joel Brook and David Northcutt, foot specialists in Texas encourage their patients to regularly perform foot exercises. Similar to the rest of your body, your feet benefit from a little workout as well:

  • Flex and point your toes for several repetitions a few times a day.
  • Sit in a chair and place a towel on the floor beneath your feet. Scrunch up the towel with your toes to bring it towards you.
  • Pick up small objects, such as marbles, with your toes.
  • Wrap an elastic band around all five of your toes. Expand your toes for five seconds before releasing and then repeat five times on each foot.

Healthy feet are happy feet, and a little effort and attention goes a long way. If your feet have been neglected and are now suffering with pain or fungal problems, please contact Dallas Podiatry Works for help.

"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
