Custom Orthotics

What Are Custom Orthotics?

They are a biomechanical medical device that is specific to your foot according to the design requirements of our podiatrists. These are custom orthotics – different than the one-size-fits-all mentality of the drug store knock-offs or large, unflattering orthotics of the recent past.

These biomechanical orthotics combine state-of-the-art technology with the highest performance materials that allow your feet to operate in a more natural and efficient manner.

You can expect to feel improvement in your feet, legs, hips and even your lower back. Related corns, calluses, aches and pains usually diminish and disappear over time.

Our Podiatrists Wear Them Too.

Dr. Freels, Dr. Carter & Dr. Barko all wear them because they are the first custom orthotics they have found that fit into almost any shoe – dress shoes, high heels, cross trainers, running shoes, etc.

They have significantly reduced Dr. Freels’ neck pain that stems from her uneven gait.

They also cause her to stand up taller and straighter, improving her overall appearance.

How Are They Customized?

The results of your examination will be discussed with you in detail and how they relate to your specific back, hip, leg, knee, ankle or foot ailments.

(Have you ever heard that song, “Your knee bone’s connected to your hip bone?”  It’s true!)

After our podiatrists have prescribed orthotics for you, a cast of your feet will be made ensuring that all pressure points, arch and areas of interest are captured. Your cast and our podiatrists’ evaluation will be sent to the lab where the manufacturer will create your unique orthotic. Your custom orthotic will be ready for pick up in about 3 weeks.

Lexington Podiatry Orthotics Guarantee
Did you know? Lexington Podiatry guarantees that if you are not satisfied with the comfort of your custom orthotics, we will modify them at our own cost, within the three month trial period (office visit charge still applies per contract with insurance). If you’re thinking about conservative treatment options, this is the stress free way to go!

Staff was extremely friendly and professional. They took us back immediately and no waiting for doctor to come in. Dr Settles-Carter was amazing with my little girl. She took her time and explained every detail to my daughter. As we were leaving my little girl said Dr Settles-Carter was the best doctor ever. Coming from a 10yr old.

It took some work, and patience, but my feet are much better now. Dr. Freels worked with me to find exercises, and more importantly, the right shoe to wear. So nice not to dread going into work, for the pain of simply walking. Despite what another review here says, they've never tried to sell me any shoes there, have always left the choice up to me.

The staff was very courteous. However, the care provided by Dr. Carter and the staff in the back was exceptional! I finally had answers for my health concerns and issues and a course or plan of treatment including the costs of the services they provide. I especially liked the hours of operation...I can see a doctor for the treatment I need without having to use my personal and sick days! Love the flexibility. Lastly, the ambiance esthetics were relaxing and beautiful.

The entire staff at Lexington Podiatry was very welcoming and friendly. Jill went out of her way to make sure my daughter was taken care of. We appreciate being seen so quickly (it would have taken weeks to have seen an orthopedist for her foot injury). Now, she is on the road to recovery! Great office, thanks everyone!

Had a great experience! Everyone was very nice, it was clean, the doctor took time to listen to me. She showed me my x-rays and explained them to me. I would recommend them to family and friends.
