Patient Story: Regaining Strength

Airrosti providers often attend CrossFit or other athletic competitions to help keep the athletes injury free. It’s here where many people discover just how amazing Airrosti truly is. Patient and CrossFitter Gayla Ramos had been seeing a traditional chiropractor for a back injury for ten months. After getting treated by Dr. Travis Moore at a competition, she felt immediate improvement and regained her strength. Read her full story below!


Over a year ago this month I got cocky during a workout and decided that I was able to handle a front squat weight that I was not ready for. Needless to say my last round of front squats ended up hurting my back.
The next time I went in to work out we have 65 pound thrusters, and 65 pounds is light to me, but I couldn’t even do the movement to get it to my shoulders. I had to start all over — deadlifting with a kettle bell off of a box and not using any weights over 55 pounds.
I started seeing a chiropractor 3 times a week. I was feeling a little better, so I moved to 2 times a week. And just because I was tired of missing work and not for pain relief, I lied and said “I am fine we can move to 1 time a week.”
It was not fine. I was still compensating when I worked my weights back up, and I was signed up for the Bring the Heat competition. I was not prepared for the 75 pound front squat at all and don’t even get me started on the clean ladder. I ended up lifting 125 pounds up on one leg because my lower back hurt so bad.


Travis Moore treated me there one time before the WOD with the 75 pound front squats and I felt amazing. I saw him 3 more times during the competition and I felt like I made more progress over that weekend than I did going to a chiropractor for the past 10 months. I got his card and made my first appointment.

Dr. Travis Moore listened to me and understood me. He took time to find the problem and make me better. My first competition after that I noticed that my back did not hurt once and there was a 95 pound thruster. I am a forever client of Dr. Moore and if (hoping not) I ever have an injury in the future he will be the first person I contact!
