Regaining your active life after surgery can sometimes prove to be a difficult task, but Airrosti is here to help. After having two back surgeries, this patient went to Airrosti’s Dr. DeRoche in hopes of eliminating his pain. After just a few sessions, this patient was back to his favorite activities and equipped with the knowledge to keep pain at bay. Read the full story below!

I am 52 years old and have always been very active. Recent surgeries though (cervical fusion at C4–C6 and low back L4–S1) have taken a toll on me and I have had to modify my exercise routine, not mention daily life in general, in order to reduce the amount of discomfort.
Following my low back surgery that consisted of bi-lateral foraminotomy and laminectomy with ruptured disc repair, I had significant SI pain. I had two SI injections in an effort to reduce inflammation but results were mixed and very limited. The only advice I was given was to reduce the amount of activity. This was not a bright outlook for someone who is not comfortable with doing nothing, taking pain medication, and hoping things do not get worse.
A friend at work told me about Airrosti and how they help them get back to their normal activities in a very short time. Having run out of other options, I gave them a try.
At my first meeting with Dr. Jason DeRoche I was skeptical. However, it was not long after hearing his unique approach and immediate cause and affect treatment methodology that I began to be encouraged. After two visits I saw immediate results.
He stated up front that conditions resulting from surgery tend to be a bit more difficult to treat, but he was very positive he could make a difference for me. The one thing he said that I appreciate more than anything else was the fact that his goal was to get me to a place where I could do the things I had done before.
This was the first time I had heard those words since my back surgery. Before this, everyone always said how I would have to modify my life and get used to the fact I just could not do some of the things I had done before. This reassurance was like breathing new air.
After three weeks of seeing Dr. DeRoche for a total of six times, I am well on my way to enjoying running and working out again. He and the therapy staff have given me flexibility and strengthening exercises to continue my improvement, along with ones to help me to deal with occasional flair ups. I am not scheduled at this point to see Dr. DeRoche again for several months, although he has made it very clear that he is available to me anytime if I have any questions or issues.
I could not be more happy with my treatment and results I have received from Dr. DeRoche and Airrosti. Having a health management plan for the future that does not mainly consist of drugs and reduction in activities is beyond what I could have hoped for. Thank you Dr. DeRoche and staff at Airrosti for what you do. You are the best!
