Patient Story: Exponential Progress

At Airrosti, our goal is to relieve pain, fast. We recently received this story from one of Dr. Gavin Olds’ patients. After suffering a back injury and contemplating surgery, Airrosti was able to get this patient back to 100% and avoid surgery altogether!


 
My trip to Airrosti was spurred by an unfortunate lower back injury I endured while playing volleyball with my co-workers at a staff retreat. I am very competitive and will play hard to win alongside my team at any cost.
I happened to be playing on the front row which allowed me to block the opponent’s serve to our side. At one point, I jumped up to block a shot and landed regularly.
The moment my feet made contact with the ground, I felt this sharp pain in my lower back and could no longer maneuver efficiently for the remainder of the game. I became stiff and everything from that point became extremely difficult to do.
Sleeping was impossible because I was not able to roll over without feeling immense pain. Putting my shoes on was a daunting task because I was not able to bend over, and getting out of the bed or off a couch was exponentially painful.
I just knew my back was out of commission and the only thing that made sense at the moment was future back surgery.
My wife mentioned the possibility of going to Airrosti before thinking about surgery. Although my skepticism was high, I was definitely open to the idea.
My first visit to Airrosti was intense, physically beneficial, and very insightful. During the first visit, I learned that it could be a hip flexor issue or a possible slipped disc in my lower back. The doctor made it clear that the future visitations would create a clearer diagnosis of what was happening.
After that first visit, I definitely became more mobile and began to function normally again. The second and third visit were great because the doctor continued with his deep tissue therapy and techniques to remedy the problem. He’d have me get up periodically and do certain movements to check my lower back mobility. The progress was exponentially better each time! Throughout the whole process, my lower back began to feel strong and maneuvering around the house was great and pain free.
I am forever thankful that I didn’t go to the doctor immediately to get a diagnosis and possibly spend more money than needed. My lower back feels so good right now and the doctor supplied me with exercises to prevent or remedy the future pain that could possibly occur again.
My skepticism in regard to going to Airrosti definitely disappeared fast. The biggest thing that I took away from my Airrosti experience was that Airrosti should never be a secondary option, rather it should be primary when desiring to have your physical pain dealt with. I will not hesitate to recommend anybody that mentions any type physical pain due to an injury or condition. Thanks, Airrosti.
