I had neck surgery approximately 30 years ago and have had chronic pain ever since. I have tried everything but to no avail. My Doctor suggested I try physical therapy with Dr. Duran at Airrosti, and I am so glad she did, as after 4 one hour sessions, my pain level is about a 2, which is the best it has been in years. I highly recommend Dr. Duran at Airrosti in Dallas.
Twenty-five years ago I had surgery which affected my shoulder/neck. Apparently, scar tissue was to blame for the extreme pain and tightness I was experiencing. I had seen regular chiropractors and a pain management specialist, but Dr. Hurt diagnosed the problem immediately and her technique gave me immediate relief. The whole Airrosti experience was great.
I went to see Dr. Peregrine for sciatica nerve pain. I am very pleased with the results of my Airrosti treatment. Dr. Peregrine's treatments along with stretching and exercise techniques taught me by Ryan Brown relieved my pain after just 3 visits. I would highly recommend them.
I did it landing from a skydive... I had never heard of Airrosti until I read about it through my employer, Battelle. I had just dislocated my shoulder pretty severely a few weeks prior in August. I tore half of one of the four rotator cuff tendons, broke a bone in the shoulder, and significantly tore my labrum. The ball of my shoulder joint sat on my right chest for three hours as I waited in the ER. I am a pretty funny person but I couldn't think up enough jokes with the nurses to keep my mind off the pain. ;-) I am not a novice skydiver or anything and cannot remember the last time I fell on landing. It has probably been 15 years since I last hurt myself, but I guess the law of large numbers will catch up to you at some point. I have been jumping 26 years and am closing in on 6000 jumps so getting back in the air was my motivation. Especially since the injury happened just before the 2017 football season and the busiest time for my side job of jumping into outdoor events. So, I had to sit on the ground watching other members of my team jump into all the events instead of joining them. There is no better motivation to get healed than to taste adrenaline again. :-) I started taking the physicians assistant-directed Physical Therapy soon after the accident and when I saw the orthopedic doctor, he figured I may need surgery but wanted to give me 6 weeks to see. During that period is when I found out about Airrosti and had three appointments in 10 days and a fourth after another 10 days. I worked diligently on all the exercises they gave me and when I went back to the doctor, he was blown away at my condition saying that he was fully expecting to recommend surgery. He expected to find a lot of 'slop' in my shoulder where he could move it within the joint but there was no movement at all and my strength astonished him. He said I was at the same place folks would be weeks after having a surgery to fix things. It has now been almost five months since the injury and I have no pain and no restriction of movement. I just need to continue to strengthen it. Everything Dr. Goedken (Getty) and Vincent discussed with me made perfect sense and I especially appreciated Getty's candor by explaining to me what aspects of my specific injury he and Vincent simply would not be able to correct due to the severity of the injury. But they helped me regain ALL my range of motion. The bottom line? I am back in the air skydiving and feasting on the adrenaline! I ended up jumping again in late October exactly 12 weeks to the day after the injury and did so in front of 5000 people at an anti-bullying pep rally at a local high school in Virginia. Quite a way to get back into the air! The image I attached is me exiting the plane for that jump (Image by Kevin Reynolds). The shoulder was strong and solid and even withstood about 500 high fives from the 4900+ kids in attendance from all over the county! Thank you very much for everything, Getty, and Vincent of Charlottesville Airrosti!
I've had a sharp pain on the right side of my neck for over 4 weeks and decided I needed to go to the doctor. I saw a general practitioner who prescribed muscle relaxers, but after two full weeks, I still had no pain relief. A friend recommended Airrosti, and although I was skeptical, I was ready to try anything. I was able to get a next day appointment with Dr. Pena. He was extremely thorough and explained in detail (with pictures on the wall) what was going on with my muscle groups. The in-office treatment he gave me, along with the exercises he prescribed, resulted in immediate improvement! Amazingly, I haven't had anything near the pain level I was having before, and I've only had one treatment. I have my second appointment tomorrow and am excited to see my neck pain completely resolved. I am 100% satisfied with my experience with Airrosti!
I just completed my first round of treatment with Dr. Daniels after spraining my ankle playing basketball. He is personable and knowledgeable and was able to help me reduce my time away from being active pretty dramatically compared to past experiences with ankle injuries. I would highly recommend Dr. Daniels.
I developed a sharp pain under my right shoulder blade, much like a pinched nerve, and the pain would radiate into my right pectoral area (this pain was not in my spine). I dealt with it for about a month, hard to sit, hard to sleep. I was fine as long as I was up and moving. No pain lifting or moving. I attended a "get to know" event at work with ARROSTI which our Benefits Administrator scheduled. I discussed my pain with the AIRROSTI specialist, Brooke Halboth, Brooke assured me she could help. After our first session, the next morning the pain was gone. Incredible! Brooke was thorough with evaluating my movement and pain before starting the therapy. Brooke and her assistant Shelby worked flawless together. I would Highly recommend AIRROSTI as an alternate treatment. Thank you, Brooke :)
I started the process with a recommendation from a friend who had been successfully treated by Jeb Cormier for a chronically painful and limiting injury. My first appointment confirmed taking that recommendation was the right way to go. After an interview and exam, I was given an explanation for the reasons for my pain. The illustration of an anatomical chart made sense and Dr. Cormier got to work my facia. I have completed 4 treatments and the PT homework exercises thus far and I am extremely encouraged that I am going to function well without pain. I recommend and thank Dr. Cormier and his assistant Tara for treatment. They were informative, effective, efficient, engaging, honest and compassionate. You will be in good hands with Dr. Cormier.
"AIRROSTI has been a game changer in our household, vastly improving quality of life for both my husband and me. As a result, when my 8 year old daughter was recently having severe, chronic headaches, I thought of AIRROSTI for her as a possible treatment option. My daughter had experienced 4 week-long headaches within a three month period, and we desperately wanted to find her relief. The headaches had been affecting every aspect of her life, including causing many missed days of school and an inability to consistently participate in extracurricular activities. Within 24 hours of the first AIRROSTI treatment, my daughter had her first pain free day in 11 days and she was able to stop taking pain reliever daily. She could definitely feel the difference in the reduced tension in her neck, shoulders, and upper back. - Dr. Vick was great about customizing the treatment to her age and tolerance level. My daughter was enthusiastic about her second and third treatments because she could appreciate the difference in how she felt. It has also been very helpful that my daughter has been given the tools to help manage her own health through the stretching exercises she has been taught. Our family continues to be thankful we found AIRROSTI. We are delighted to have access to such an amazing resource. Barbara McLaughlin
I recently had two back surgeries. I chose to go to Airrosti and see Dr. Vaughn for rehab. He and his staff (Ashley) showed a genuine interest in my recovery and return me to a pain free status. I never felt rushed in and out like you do in so many medical facilities these days. After 3 visits I am happy to say I am pain free. They also set me up on a plan to keep me that way. Great job Dr. Vaughn and Ashley. I would gladly refer anyone to see them.
Dr. Bradley has successfully addressed the pain issues that I have endured for over 4 decades! I have visited doctors, surgeons, therapists and chiropractors; tried acupuncture, massages, and workouts/therapy that have focused on stretching but NO ONE addressed the specific areas that she diagnosed instantly in my first visit. After just two visits, my pain has been eliminated and I am so grateful for Dr. Bradley and Airrosti for their services. I cannot more highly recommend this service and particularly Dr. Bradley for her professionalism, expertise and personal care for my specific physical situation.
I can't thank Dr. Hurt enough for the wonderful care and support she has given me on my road to healing a herniated cervical disk. I have struggled for 7 years with flare ups that caused excruciating pain down my shoulder blade, across my shoulder, and down my arm. Sitting and driving were next to impossible. I have tried chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapies. I have also taken over-the-counter pain medication/anti-inflammatories nearly daily during most of those 7 years. During extreme flare ups, I have tried prescription pain relievers, muscle relaxants, and steroids. The ONLY treatment that has ever given me relief during those times has been spinal injections. When I had my last extreme flare up, I started seeing Dr. Hurt. Through the combination of her treatments and prescribed exercises, I have had 100% relief. This is the FIRST time I have ever had relief without a spinal injection. Currently, I am not taking any medication and I am living a normal, pain-free life. I credit Dr. Hurt with keeping me from neck surgery, and giving me my active lifestyle back.
I called for a follow up rehab for my frozen shoulder, and I had Dr. Vick this time. It’s been two years from my initial diagnosis and after having done all the necessary tests and cortisone shots as well as home exercises, I decided to try rehab again. Dr. Vick helped a lot in improving my mobility and pain. Our conversation during rehab reduced the pain from the treatment. I would recommend her to anybody I know. Thank you, Dr. Vick.
My story started in November of 2017. I came to Dr. Rios after almost 12 months of severe plantar fasciitis. I was getting steroid shots and using a night splint. I tried it all and nothing worked. After four visits with Dr. Rios, I am living with mild pain. I am working the program and doing my home exercises and it is getting better by the day. I just wish I would have gone here first. No more suffering. Thank you so much, Dr. Rios. I can't say enough nice things about her and the practice. An injury is life-consuming and going to Airrosti has me back on the road to recovery.
I want to thank Dr. Terra Schanzenbacher, in March of this year I had very bad pain in my right heal. I had gone to a Podiatrist, but shots were all my options besides surgery. I was not up for that I would have to be out for at least 8 weeks. They recommended Airrosti, which I had already heard of them since my son played sports and we had already taken him and it worked. My husband had also had a shoulder injury and he also went to Airrosti which he is great now also, so I made my appointments and I have had a great outcome. I am able to do whatever I want, Walk, Run, everyday life things. I owe it all to Dr. Terra. If you have second doubts about this treatment please change your mind and try it out. I have recommended my Boss and a Coworker for two different injury's and they thanked me for doing this. Thank Goodness for AIRROSTI 2017
Dr. Tyger got me back on my feet after injuring my knee while running. I had already seen my primary care physician (pain and anti-inflammatory meds) and an orthopedic surgeon (cortisone injection) with very limited improvement. I went to Dr. Tyger with 2 weeks left before a 5K. At the time I saw him, I was still limping badly, in a fair amount of pain, and any walking made the issue worse. Even after 1 treatment, I felt so much better! After 4 treatments, I walked the 5K (running was out of the question) and spent another 5 days at Walt Disney World with almost no discomfort at all. The jury is still out as to whether surgery has been avoided but Dr. Tyger and Airrosti quickly got me to a point where I could fully function with the exception of running and some other leg-intensive exercises. As for the treatment being painful, there were a few moments that were very painful but they only lasted 30-60 seconds at the most. Most of the time, while a lot of pressure was exerted, it was not painful. And that is only part of the treatment. Time is also spent on exercises, stretching and foam rolling, which also contributed to the improvement that I saw. If I have any further soft tissue pain or injuries, Dr. Tyger and Airrosti will be my first call!
I went to Airrosti after having trouble sleeping at night...my shoulders hurt so badly when I awoke in the night I was paralyzed in pain. This painful sleeping pattern had been going on for over a month and prescription strength topical analgesics were not helping so I knew it was time for a different type of professional help. I logged into the Airrosti website and quickly got a callback and an appointment. I met Dr. Angel Jackson a few days later and she asked me to describe my problems. Not knowing where to begin I told her I was there for my shoulders but I had a multitude of problems. She asked me to describe everything that ailed me so she could better understand my pains. I've had over 20 surgeries in my lifetime so I wasn't sure where to begin. So we started with my shoulders; the whole reason why I was there. After my first visit, we came to the conclusion that my shoulder muscles had been spazam'ing from the long recovery times after 3 back-to-back surgeries, poor posture, lack of exercise and many, many hours in front of a computer (for my daily job). She worked on my muscles, correcting my posture with tape and we began a very effective stretching regimen. The pain I had on my shoulders extended to my neck and head so Dr. Jackson worked her way up and after the second visit I noticed my 20 year old headache went away. For 3 hours my head was pain-free...and then I yawned. The pain in my head returned immediately. At my next visit, I told her about my experience with the yawn and she focused on my jaw. As it turned out, the pain again went away and she recommended that I see a TMJ specialist, so I did! The TMJ Dentist diagnosed me with TMJ as we suspected and also with arthritis. He gave me a treatment plan and at my next visit with Dr. Jackson, I told her the news. She taught me how to massage the muscles in my face that control the head pain stemming from the TMJ and as of this testimonial, I have been a headache free for 3 weeks. I am able to massage my headaches away and no longer need to take medicines for the headaches. A few more visits, more work on my shoulder, neck, head and face muscles and more stretches and new exercise each time. I was quickly on my way to recovery. The progress each time was significant! Another pain that I noticed that had disappeared was the chest pain I've had for the last year. My gastroenterologist doctor had been treating me for esophageal spasms thinking the pain in my chest was from one of the surgeries. So again, to my surprise, while Dr. Jackson was treating me for shoulder pain, the chest pain disappeared and the meds did too! I was so amazed by the progress I made in just a hand full of visits with Dr. Jackson, I had to tell you my story. 1. My shoulders pain is gone and I am able to sleep on my sides again. I stopped rubbing on the prescribed topical medicine. I have been stretching and exercising as instructed and I feel great! I can do pushups again! 2. I no longer have chest pain or take medicine for it! 3. I no longer have headaches. I am able to vanquish them with a facial massage which solved the 20+-year-old mystery of the infamous "a sinus headache". 4. I am getting the proper treatment for TMJ through my dentist. Dr. Angel Jackson has been a miracle in my life. I am so fortunate to have met a Doctor that can treat and SOLVE health problems and I strongly recommend Airrosti to anyone that has been suffering from pain unnecessarily. Thank you for reading my story.
I was having severe back and hip pain. I could ride 50 miles, but couldn't walk 10 feet without excruciating pain. I went to Illinois Bone and Joint for a look and after Xrays and MRI, they could not understand why I was in such pain. I truly did not know what to do and being an active person, this was not good. I was in pain all the time. My daughter recommended Airrosti to me after she worked with someone in Houston on her shoulder. At this point, I was willing to try anything and Dr. Medlock had a good rating and he is close to my home. It was a quick fix and it was quite painful under the pressure of the messaging. 4 visits over a 3 week time period and my new 2X daily exercise program, I am pain free. I can walk for miles, back in the gym. Totally recommend this!
I came to Stephanie with a shoulder sprain when I was unable to do anything overhead for many weeks, including handstands. In our first session, Stephanie was very professional and knowledgeable about the source of my pain and provided great context into the connected muscles. At the end of the first session, I felt no pain when I went overhead, but I was also able to do a handstand at Airrosti! Instantly, I was hooked! Since that session, I have seen Stephanie for multiple injuries over the past two years and in all of those instances, I was healed in 3-4 sessions. Even if I haven't come in for months, Stephanie was always kind and followed up with me regarding my activities and how my body was holding up. She is very thoughtful and considerate and always thinks of her patients first. I would HIGHLY recommend her to everyone I know and that is an understatement!
Before visiting Dr. Latiolais, I had minor back surgery to remove a benign cyst on my upper back - it wasn't until several months after this surgery that I started losing feeling in several of my fingers on that same side of my body and began to get a more limited range of motion - all despite me being a fairly in shape middle-aged male. My workouts were starting to suffer and I wanted to avoid surgery; I decided to try Airrosti after no results from a known chiropractor. Going in, I was a skeptic - but after a very short week and a half, I started to feel real results - she was able to identify and focus in on what really the issue through her analysis; three sessions with Dr. Latiolais and daily home exercises in conjunction with regular workouts relieved all my symptoms in just over a couple weeks from first seeing her. I've recommended Airrosti to several colleagues and friends and will continue to do so.
I injured myself a month away from my marathon. Walking, jogging and especially running hurt so bad. Dr. Jonathan Welch has helped me tremendously in just one visit only and the pain was 95% gone. I was able to even run my long run of 18miles and the week I saw him even run 25-30 miles. It was amazing how the treatment helped. If not for Dr. Welch and his assistant Ben, I would not be able to do my marathon. Thank you so much! I did finish my marathon 12-3-2017 at the Rock n’ Roll San Antonio.
Dr. Troy Barnes was incredibly effective at identifying, treating and eliminating my injury and the pain associated with it. I had been to several chiropractors and physicians about my injury but never was able to achieve full recovery. I had just about given up believing it could be healed, but Dr. Barnes got me on the road to rapid recovery after just one visit! I highly recommend him to anyone who has persistent pain from any injury.
I am a thorough believer in Airrosti. I found Dr. Kulcak after I injured my back. She quickly helped me with my back pain. I have also used her for: IT band, bicep and wrist pain (Apparently, I am one of those who takes awhile to learn using proper form while doing Crossfit). Dr. Kulcak is always professional, quick to pinpoint my pain and what caused it to happen. Most of all, I don't have to go back for the same injury for more than a couple of times. Dr. Kulcak and Airrosti are the best!
First and foremost Airrosti is an organization that has a great culture and ethos, getting you back in action through functional active therapy. I have been battling back pain for years that comes and goes. I was going to normal physical therapy and not getting the results I anticipated I would. I was able to see Dr. Pappas and within the sessions, I could tell a difference. While this is something that I will have to maintain the rest of my life, I have been given the tools and confidence that it is manageable. Dr. Pappas, thank you for your professionalism and work ethic. Thank you, Dr. Pappas and Airrosti for your support of our military members, old and new. It is a true testament to this company!
I just want to take a moment and say "thank you" to Dr. Doug Goehry and his team. I was so apprehensive about running since I had knee pain. After three short visits, he was able to help me tremendously. I am so happy I took the time to see him. Dr. Goehry was very caring, calling and always making himself available. I appreciate all you have done for me. I wish you nothing but success. Thank you, Dr. Goehry!
