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.

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.

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!
