Patient Story: Rowing Records

This testimonial is the epitome of our mantra “Don’t let pain stop you.” Patient Michael Matson hasn’t let his childhood accident stop him from his active lifestyle. In fact, thanks to his determination and Airrosti’s Dr. Le and Dr. Payne, Matson is currently training to complete the adventure of a lifetime.


When I was young, a narcoleptic fell asleep at the wheel and drove into me while riding my bicycle after school. I was on crutches for 6 months, and I have never been able to sit cross-legged since.
This range of mobility has been a constant struggle, but I have been able to compete in sports through college, and soon I will become the first Texan in history to row across the Atlantic Ocean.
In training for such a feat, I have encountered many injuries, but the doctors at Airrosti (I’ve visited with many, all with unique areas of specialty, and all with excellent skills and knowledge on how to keep me in the gym) have kept me on track!
