Foot Ailments That Benefit Most From Orthotics

Many foot ailments can benefit from orthotics.

They are an excellent conservative treatment for arch and heel pain that results from the flattening of the arch.

This strain slowly begins to tear the muscles, tendons and tissues in and below the arch, which act to support the arch and foot.

Over time, this results in instability, which in turn causes foot problems such as:

Care For Your Orthotics

It's important for orthotic success that you follow the break-in period once you have your custom or semi-custom inserts in hand. Your success hinges on how well you follow the protocol and once the break-in period is over, the amount of time that you are actively wearing your orthotics in your shoes.

We know that it's impossible to always wear them, but we recommend that you wear them 80% of the time. Learn more about break-in tips and tricks in Orthotic 101!

5-Five-Star-Google-Review-Lexington-KY-Podiatry

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.
