Board Certified Pedorthist
Travis Freitas is a Board Certified Pedorthist (C. Ped.) and has been practicing on the Central Coast since November of 2000. A pedorthist is a specialist that fills foot and ankle related prescriptions after your physician has determined what type of device you need to have constructed. Travis will conduct an evaluation, cast your foot/ankle, and construct your appliance based on your physician’s prescription. The industry of “Pedorthics” (peh-DOR-thix) is the design, manufacture, modification, and fit of footwear to alleviate problems caused by disease, overuse, congenital condition, or injury.
Travis Freitas received his Pedorthic certification from The Medical College of Wisconsin, in Milwaukee. At that time, he became the youngest certified pedorthist in the nation. Travis started his Pedorthic career by establishing the Pedorthic Department of a retail shoe store in Pismo Beach. Travis has five years of retail footwear experience and is an expert shoe fitter. He is very familiar with shoe manufacturers, their construction techniques, and he can select the proper shoe size/style based on your specific needs.
In July of 2004, Travis decided to join a podiatry practice to provide Pedorthic care through a physician’s office. Travis established his own Pedorthic business in May of 2012. Travis networks with multiple podiatry offices along the Central Coast to provide full service Pedorthic care at your podiatrist’s office.
Travis’ specialties include accommodative (softer style) orthotics, diabetic footwear for ulcer prevention/healing, foot/ankle bracing, and all types of shoe modifications including sole lifts.
As always, you can contact our office to answer any questions or concerns.
