I've lived with soft tissue pain in my quad and hip for two years after I had a partial hip replacement due to a fall. I had several rounds of PT, steroid shots and was even taking Norco at least twice a week. Nothing helped. My pain continued and affected my ability to walk without a limp. I read about Airrosti on Facebook and did my research. When I read it only takes three sessions to get relief I was ecstatic! I made an appointment with Dr. Sandi Kramer at the office on Fredericksburg in San Antonio. She worked on my quad and hip for three sessions and my pain is 90% gone! Pete taught me some exercises and also taught me about small equipment you can buy to massage the pain points. I've learned so much more from Dr. Sandi and Pete than I ever did from any physical therapists. My quality of life has improved immensely. I'm back at the gym! I'm continuing my exercises they taught me. I highly recommend Airrosti if you want relief from whatever pain you are having. Three sessions!!!

After suffering for many years with back pain and after 360 Spine Surgery, ryzotomies , numerous steroid injections and then having the hardware removed - it wasn't until my spine dr. recommended Airrosti treatments that I finally am having relief. Along with a PT specialist I can be vertical without a lot of discomfort. (Megan Leonard) Thanks to both of them !!!!!

I began having major issues with my sciatic nerve in May. After 2 ER visits, MRI's, pain meds and conventional rehab, I wasn't happy with the slow process of feeling better and getting back to normal. I decided to try Airrosti and Dr Kregel went though all of my history and explained where the issue was and how he would go about helping to correct my issues. After 4 treatments I can say that I feel almost 100% better! I would recommend him to anyone! Please try Airrosti before going through surgery! Thanks again, Dr. Kregel!!

I went to Airrosti/Dr.Best for lower back pain. On my first visit I felt relief. I tried anti inflammatories, pain pills etc but it was Dr. Best that provide relief from months of pain. He gave me all the tools to get me on the road to recovery. In only 3 visits I was fixed. It's up to me to do my exercises and use the tools to stay pain free. I would highly recommend Airrosti/Dr. Best to anyone it's truly remarkable.

I have been plagued with headaches and tension for over 20 years and thought it was something I would just have to live with permanently until seeing Kristina Myles. These headaches were so bad that I would have to take a prescription in order to get rid of them or I just lived with having a headache constantly. My husband was treated by Dr. Myles for a small pinched nerve issue and suggested I see her that she could possibly help with my headaches. Well after about eight (8) visits I can say I no longer have all the tension in my neck and shoulders and my headaches are gone. I never even knew there were things like Airrosti that could help relieve pain as well as keep it away and I am grateful to have found Dr. Myles. I know if I should ever start to have challenges with headaches again or any type of back pain or muscle pain her form of treatment is the answer.

Dr. Clark provided me with support and help through 2 injuries. The first injury was plantar fasciitis. Through muscle manipulation, Dr. Clark was able to get rid of the pain that comes with this injury and also, gave me the flexibility I needed to stay healthy. The second and more severe was a pulled hamstring. Very painful, but Dr Clark again through muscle manipulation was able to get rid of the horrible bruising, stiffness and pain associated with that type of injury. Several friends told me about Airrosti and how it works and their successes. But really to see for myself was amazing. I truly recommend Airrosti treatment.

I struggled with an ongoing knee injury which would flare up a few times a month and prevent me from doing any kind of activity without pain or stiffness. I am a mom of three boys under the age of 5 so being out of pocket in this way was just not an option. Thank goodness I heard about Airrosti from a family member. I went ahead and gave it a shot and made an appointment with Dr. Carpenter. He listened to my concerns and clearly explained what I could expect with our sessions and my treatment plan. After my first session my mobility and pain was amazingly better! I was blown away by how quickly this treatment worked to heal my injury. I was able to get back to chasing after my boys and getting back into the gym after my first appointment. After only 4 sessions I can say that my knee is strong and pain-free! I am so thankful for this treatment and a doctor that listened to me and helped me get back to chasing my boys with ease.

I developed pain in my right upper shoulder/neck area 5 months ago, and was unable to get any type of relief, despite trying physical therapy treatments, deep tissue massages, etc. A friend recommended Airrosti to me, and I signed up as a last ditch effort to find a way to stop the constant pain. I won't lie and tell you that some of the treatment wasn't painful, or that there wasn't some cursing involved on my part, but the pain was very short lived, and I finally was able to get relief after only 4 visits. I have now been discharged with exercises to help me keep my pain at bay, and I am so grateful to Dr. Friel for his help in getting me relief that I wasn't able to get anywhere else. I have already recommended Airrosti to several of my friends.

I started training for a half marathon approximately 6 months postpartum. I was very active pre-pregnancy (running, yoga, CrossFit) and was trying to gradually work back up to my previous level of fitness. I started developing left knee pain approximately 4 months into my training (approximately 2 months before the race). I attempted to treat the problem myself through ice, medication, stretching, etc. however nothing was relieving the pain. Because of my busy schedule working full-time and being a full-time mom, I decided to see Dr. Sue at Airrosti since I had seen him before for a different issue and knew how efficient and effective his techniques were. After 3 visits of specific soft tissue techniques, coupled with stabilization, strengthening and stretching techniques (along with a home exercise program) I was essentially pain free. I was able to complete the half marathon, running the entire race, pain free and without compensation. Since running the race, I have continued to be pain free and have also been able to continue running (as well as participate in other activities like CrossFit, and chasing after my little one) without restriction. The entire experience at Airrosti has been nothing but positive. The treatment techniques and comprehensive patient plan were both excellent, and the customer service was phenomenal! Thank you, to both Dr. Sue and Taylor, for taking such great care of me!!

Our son, a left handed pitcher, was experiencing elbow pain and inflammation. We took him to the most reputable elbow doctors in the DFW area and were told he need to rest 6 - 8 weeks and start a throwing program. He did this twice, but the pain returned. Just when he thought he might have to be done with baseball, someone recommended Eric Vaughn and AIRROSTI to us. After seeing Dr. Vaughn, the pain and inflammation were gone and he was able to throw again. Now, one year after he was thinking he might not play again, he was named pitcher of the game in a college showcase tournament. We are so thankful for Dr. Vaughn and would definitely recommend him.

I am a believer and now advocate of the Arrosti treatment! I am a Software Architect for Southwest Airlines; and each day I do a lot of walking between buildings and to/from meetings. After being diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, it was painful to walk just a few steps. I did a google search and ended up in the office of Dr. Sarah Rothgeb. She did a great job in being thorough with regards to explaining the impacted muscles and ligaments as well as what the Arrosti treatment entails. I have heard stories of not being cured of plantar fasciitis within a 6 month period; but under Dr. Rothgeb's care and the Arrosti treatment, my ailment went away in just a little over a month! Truly Amazing! Thank you Dr. Rothgeb!

I first found Airrosti via a Google search and was a bit skeptical of the perfect 5 star reviews that Dr. Shiflett's office had, but I was in pain and needed a quick solution so I thought I'd give it a shot. I met with Dr. Shiflett and explained that I was training to climb Mt. Rainier in just a few months and was experiencing significant knee pain while I was doing training hikes on the weekend. Brandon was eager to understand where my pain was and assured me that it shouldn't impact my ability to reach my goal. While it took a few visits to pinpoint the areas that were the source of my knee pain, we were able to figure it out and along with Sam, work out a training program to solve my issues. Because mountaineering training is so intensive, I ended up coming back a few months later for an unrelated issue in my shins. Again, we worked together to find the source of the problem and were able to get it corrected in time for me to start my climb. I'm happy to say that I reached the summit of Mt. Rainier on May 31st! I can honestly say that I don't think that I would have been able to achieve this goal without Brandon & Sam's help. I really appreciate everything they did to help me get there!

I have had pain in my left heel for the last 6 months. I haven't been able to work out, it had been difficult to walk with out pain. I went to Dr. Nino in San Antonio. After she treated my heel I went from being in almost unbearable pain, with every step to no pain. Its been about a week and my heel feels like new.

Dr. Joe has excellent bedside manner and is extremely knowledgeable in his field of practice. He takes the time to explain what is going on with your injury and his plan for your recovery. Crystal is also very thorough going over all the PT Dr. Joe assigns you. The office staff is very courteous and professional as well. Everything about this office and staff is a very pleasant experience. I will definitely come back if I ever need to and would recommend Dr. Joe to anyone.

I recently attended one of the CrossFit regionals as a volunteer and was lucky enough to receive treatment from Dr Hillary Owen whilst there. I was recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in both knees and have been struggling with mobility, this was aggravated by the hours spent on my feet volunteering at the regionals. Dr Owen treated me for a good length of time, identifying the issues that are causing my difficulties, pain and aggravating the OA. She spent time educating me on how I can help myself and how I can mobilize myself daily so thy I can live my life with OA - the OA is not going away but there is much I can do to reduce the pain levels. Only a week on from my treatment with Dr Owen and already I can identify significant progression and I am certainly less wobbly on my feet and in less pain. I highly recommend Dr Owen and I am very grateful to her for the time she took to help and educate me! If you are in the vicinity of Dr Owen's office and you have any pain issues then you should make an appointment!

I injured my neck at a volleyball tournament and couldn't move me head at all. I couldn't even sit up in bed without head from someone. I went to another doctor, but the pain only went away for a couple hours. I then went to airrosti desperate because I had to get back on the court fast. I felt results after only one treatment. I was back on the court and even competed in my track meet the next day. After my third visit I was completely pain free and haven't had any issues since.

I am a spouse of a Southwest Airlines employee. I have had three very successful experiences with Airrosti. Two involved tennis elbow, and one for a calf injury. After trying other medical alternatives (braces/cortisone shots) that only relived the problem temporarily, I am a true believer in Airrosti therapy. My doctor had me pain free after 5 treatments.

I am a runner and had an injury for over a year that would not heal....a strained upper hamstring that formed scar tissue. I stretched and massaged the area as I have always known to to do with injuries but to no avail, nothing would help with this injury. I heard from advertisements of Airrosti helping local NBA players with their injuries so I made an appt. Three appointments later, the pain while running vanished. Thanks to my Airrosti trainer, the pain was gone, but also, he gave me tips and advice to help with future problems active people face on a daily basis. I am a Southwest Airlines employee that does have issues from time to time that require some form of rehab, but from what I've learned from the arrosti tech, I feel like I can do on my own without an appt.

I was an athlete at the Crossfit West Regionals this past weekend in Portland and I received multiple treatments from Kelly. Kelly was incredible. She fixed a lot of my nagging injuries, identified the problems both physiologically and what caused them in the first place, as well as showed me how to prevent these injuries in the future. I have spent a lot of time doing physio and all of it together doesn't compare to the hour or two that Kelly spent treating me. I couldn't be happier with her service.

I have been dealing with neck and back pain from a herniated disc since 1999, and recently diagnosed with bursitis in both hips. I had neck surgery in 2005 and was afraid I was going need surgery on my back in the near future. I have had neck discomfort, and migraines to where I would get dizzy since the surgery on my neck, and injections in my hips. I heard about Airrosti and decided to try it out. I was treated by Dr Pappas three different times on each area, and some very simple stretches and exercises to do that goes along with the treatment plan. I don't have any more pain, head aches, and my range of motion is so much better. He is amazing at what he does! He is extremely knowledgeable, listens to you, patiently teaches you about your condition and the treatment, and has the best bedside manner. This is the best choice I've ever made in my healthcare. I would highly recommend making an appointment with Airrosti before seeing a specialist.

Stan has been able to give me advice and guidance to heal and prevent injuries. I cannot recommend him more highly. He is a professional, kind and helpful to his clients. From issues with my knees, to back pain, I have seen immense progress in my training with his help.

I have been diagnosed with arthritis on the last 3 disks in my spine. Because of that I had intense pain in lower back and runs down to my legs and thighs, walk slow due to pain caused to my spinal nerve being squeezed/pinched by the arthritis. My body was so tense I could hardly walk from my office to the car in the parking lot at work. I visited with Dr. Luna for about 5 treatments in one month. What a difference it has made. She didn't promise 100 percent pain free. She did promise I would improve and be able to move around better and decrease my pain to at least 2 percent. I have improved enough to move better with very little pain, carry my baby grandson, I worked in my yard, and learned a lot about my own body as it moves. It just seemed like my body or I forgot the way it should move or work due to tension all over my back and legs. Dr. Luna taught me so much about how I should adjust my position and movements so that I can be more flexible and be able to do more with my body. I also learned what to do when I feel tense, more importantly pain, and what exercises to do in order to help myself feel and move better . This was a learning experience that will forever change my life style and the way I feel and move

Eleven years ago, I made a major career change and went to work for one of the greatest companies in the world, Southwest Airlines. I feel the AIRROSTI's and Southwest Airlines have saved me from a life in a wheelchair. This may sound like a bold statement, but once you hear my story, I believe you will agree and understand. At the early age of 28, I was diagnosed with Accelerated Degenerative Disc Disease (ADDD). I had just graduated from college with a Bachelor's of Science in Electronic Engineering from New Mexico State University (NMSU). While attending NMSU, and working through college, I found I had a natural knack and a 'LUV' for computers. As you might imagine, this was a startling and terrifying diagnosis at the beginning of a bright career. At this time, I had 3 consecutive discs in my neck and shoulders that were nearly completely degenerated and the discs above and below were partially degenerated. Due to the consecutive nature, every consult I had with a doctor or surgeon basically informed me there was little they could do in the way of repair. This was attributed to the fact that they needed/required support above and below any possible fusions in the spine. At this time they were limited to fusing three consecutive vertebrae. On two separate occasions, I actually had a Neuron Surgeon and an Orthopedic Surgeon inform me that they didn’t feel I would be walking by the age of 45, with my current degenerative progressive state. I was confident and strong coming out of college and didn’t plan to let this stop me. But nearly twenty years later, after tiresome 60 hour work weeks and too much business travel, the impacts on my body were devastating. To make things worse, due to all this work and travel, I had become overweight and out of shape. Of course, by then, I had made it past the age these doctors felt I would still be walking, but at this rate it was appearing that it wouldn’t be long. At 49, my Wife and I had been blessed with our second Son. I decided to make a major life change and do something about my situation. I had beaten the doctor’s first diagnosis, but my back was in the worst shape it had ever been in. I knew I needed a more stable life style and I needed to lose weight fast. I took an opportunity of a lifetime with Southwest Airlines. I continued to work long hours, but this work was the most enjoyable and relaxing of my entire career. It was very gratifying to work for and with great people. We lived only 8 miles from the office, so I began bicycling to and from work. Within three years I went from 240lbs to 200lbs. This was a vast improvement, but my back was far from better. I never liked or entertained prescription medication as a solution, as all options in this arena never worked for long term care and had too many side effects. I suffered another two years, aided by Acupuncture and Chiropractic care. From my previous experiences seeking relief from my back pain, I knew Deep Tissue Myofascial massage was helpful, but not long lasting. I knew there had to be something similar that had a more lasting effect. While watching the 2010 Winter Olympics, I observed some of the athletes utilizing Kinesiology Tape with the AIRROSTI logo. After a quick web search, I felt I found the long lasting solution to Myofascial massage. To my amazement, I found we had an AIRROSTI clinic very near the office. As a matter of fact, this very office was on my bike ride to work. In January 2011, I scheduled my first appointment with an AIRROSTI. This would turn out to be life changing. Where I was once missing work continuously and constantly in pain, I was finally getting some relief and actually feeling better. Last year, with the aid of my AIRROSTI, I had perfect attendance at work. I’m half way through the year, I have perfect attendance and I haven’t even needed to go to my AIRROSTI. It's always good to know if I start having issues, they are there for me. I now weigh a healthy 185lbs. I practice Yoga three times a week and run two miles twice a week. I believe I’m in the best physical condition I’ve been in my entire life. That says a lot, as I ran a gym in College for 3 years and worked out constantly. My back is doing very well and I attribute this to the great work life at Southwest Airlines and the wonderful care I’ve had from the AIRROSTI’s.

I visited the office of Dr. Barnes to manage pain and swelling due to a herniated disc in my low back that I've had since 1990. Prior to seeing Dr. Barnes, management of this injury included a muscle relaxer coupled with a high dose anti inflammatory when needed. Dr. Barnes and his team taught me that frequently, back pain is not necessarily due to the back itself, but the surrounding tissue in the hip, leg and abdominal areas. During my visits, Dr. Barnes conducted a thorough medical history, and put me through a series of physical therapy exercises in his office which included utilizing a foam roller and small racquet-type ball to build my core stability. I am happy to say that after several months of doing these exercises at home, I've not had to take medications and I'm pain free, getting out of bed in the morning is no longer a challenge. What I appreciate about the approach Dr. Barnes and his team take is that they want you on the road to rehabilitation in just 5 visits. Dr. Barnes and his team gave me the knowledge and tools I needed to remain pain free without frequent trips to the office. Thank you Dr. Barnes and Team, I highly recommend Arrosti Rehab Center.
