Meet Aaron Anderson - Board Certified Pedorthist Owner, P.T.I. Orthotic Laboratory

Aaron Anderson Board Certified Pedorthist
It is not required to be licensed in the state of Colorado to fabricate foot orthotic devices or custom arch supports. As a result, any person can open up an office and start fabricating these devices. Many self proclaimed experts, which have no formal training or schooling, are now filling prescriptions for foot orthotics. It is not uncommon to have shoe stores or athletic stores have a person on staff that makes custom supports in the back room.
