If you’re like the average person,
you’re taking between 8,000 and 10,000 steps a day. In your lifetime, that
will add up to around 115,000 miles or the equivalent of circling the globe
more than four times. Each day as you take those steps, your feet experience
forces totaling hundreds of tons—the equivalent, in fact, of a fully-loaded
cement truck. That force and all those steps are evidenced by the fact that
your feet are slightly larger at the end of each day than they were at the

As we walk our thousands of steps and
experience those tons of force, few of us give our feet much thought apart
from maybe shopping for some sassy, new shoes or selecting a jaunty nail
polish. But what happens when your feet begin to hurt or—heaven forbid—you
injure them in an accident. What happens when the years begin to announce
themselves in new aches and pains and maybe even a misshapen look or when
repetitive use or a degenerative issue begin to affect our feet and

That’s when you need an experienced and
dedicated podiatrist in your corner, a podiatrists like the ones at Accent
Podiatry in Mansfield and Arlington. Thousands of your Tarrant County
neighbors—of all ages—have depended on them to keep their feet and ankles
moving and healthy.

the Cause of the Problem

Drs. Dharmesh Bhakta, Parth Bhakta, Steve
Silvey, Shae Paschal, and Jacob Jasper spend their days looking for and
treating the root cause of issues ranging from sports injuries to Achilles
tendonitis, from Plantar Fasciitis to diabetic foot issues—not merely masking
symptom but assessing and addressing the root cause of the pain or
dysfunction. They’ve dedicated their careers to understanding the intricate
working of the human foot and ankle complex (all 26 bones, 33 joints and over
100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments). They take time to listen to each
patient’s concerns and make them feel like they’re the only patient they’ll
see that day. 
The Accent Podiatry doctors place an emphasis on patient
education and empowerment, taking their time to explain each condition and
recommended treatment and offering advice on how to avoid injury or
deterioration in the future.
