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, Arroyo, and McClurkin, 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.

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.
