Semi-Custom Orthotics

A Quad

Example of an orthotic that fits an ‘A Quad’ foot type.

Semi-Custom Orthotics

Quadrasteps are a semi-custom option of orthotics that have different features from your typical over-the-counter inserts, such as a deeper heel cup.

These are an excellent, inexpensive option if your feet are generally symmetrical.

Quadrasteps are very durable and may be easily transferred from shoe to shoe. They will last 1-3 years, depending on wear and tear.

What Does Semi-Custom Mean?

Semi-custom means they are made for your foot type, not custom molded to your foot.

They are commonly used to treat conditions such as:

  • Plantar Fasciitis (heel or arch pain)
  • Metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot)
  • Neuromas & Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome (burning/tingling)
  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Shin Splints
  • Hip Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Knee Pain
  • Lower Back Pain

How Do I Know My Foot Type?

Our team will perform a biomechanical gait analysis during your visit to determine first if Quadrasteps are a good option for you. If they are, they will ‘foot type’ you through multiple tests to figure out which category your feet fall in.

There are 6 different main categories of foot type and over 24 different sub categories! These are definitely not a one-size-fits all orthotic, they are an an option in-between Powersteps and custom molded orthotics.

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!

Team Wade 24

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.
