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!

Absolutely amazing staff! Smiling faces, compassion and understanding! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

I was frankly shocked at how good they were at EVERYthing. They saw me less than 2 hours after I called. Dr. Barko was ebullient and professional. You can ask them questions via TXT, which is huge. Their offices are spic-n-span and modern. Basically, they're knocking it out of the park. I don't wish for more in-grown toenails, but if it happens, I'm going straight back to Lexington Podiatry.

I love Lexington Podiatry! The staff is always so helpful, and attentive. I love Dr. Freels. She is top notch, and is always so happy to see me, and listens to me about what is going on.

Dr. Carter diagnosed and created a treatment plan in minutes- other podiatrists have treated me incorrectly for years. So pleased to have answers and solutions.

Katy Perkins


My left foot had been hurting for a while. The staff and doctors here are all quite knowledgeable and professional, as well as friendly and personable. My diagnosis was promptly made, x-ray completed right there in the office, and I left with the two braces that I needed. No waiting for the mail, trip to brace shop, nada. Most excellent clinic!
