Patient Story: Back on His Feet

This week’s testimonial comes from a performance artist who suffered a bone bruise injury that put him out of commission.  With treatment and support from Airrosti’s Dr. Alexandra Rios, he quickly regained mobility in his feet to keep him on the stage.


So, you know that song “Never Gonna Dance Again” by George Michael? Yeah, that’s how I felt! Ha! A dance injury (bone bruise) had put me out of commission for about a year! I was having to tape my foot and go crazy on the tiger balm just to make it through a performance.
The injury soon spread to my other side and this is when I went in to see Dr. Rios at Airrosti. She was brutal. (In a totally good way!!) I had seen doctors and therapist for sports injury, but Dr. Rios just jumped right in after seeing what the problem was.
The super deep tissue and trigger point treatment helped loosen up my leg. For the first time in months, I had some mobility back! Dr. Rios showed me some great massage practices and strength training I could do on my own.
I was able to compete in the Camp Gladiator Games this year and I owe most of that to Dr. Rios!
