Dancing can take a toll on the body, but pain shouldn’t crush a ballerina’s dreams. When her opportunity to dance with the Moscow Ballet was at risk, this dancer came to Airrosti to relieve her pain. Airrosti’s Dr. Olatunji went above and beyond to get her back on the stage! Read the full story below.
My daughter, Alexandra Garza, was recently treated by Dr. Olatunji for skin and knee pain. She is preparing for a part in the upcoming Moscow Ballet’s Nutcracker here in San Antonio. It is a dream come true for her.
Rehearsals are mandatory, but she was in so much pain it was hard for her to even walk. Understanding the importance of her situation and importance of not missing rehearsals, Dr. Olatunji aggressively and proactively treated my daughter and had her dancing at 100% within one week. He insured it was not a stress fracture then treated her leg with Airrosti therapy every other day until she was pain free, which took one week.
She attended one rehearsal with the pain, but was pain free by the next which is a good thing because the ballet company already had an understudy attend rehearsals to learn her part! If she didn’t heal as quick as she did, she could have lost her part!
We cannot thank Dr. Olatunji enough for the incredible treatment he provided, for coming in early to see us for appointments and communication with me and her instructors. Dr. Olatunji truly went above and beyond like no other doctor we have ever seen.
