Became an Airrosti Provider:

I have always been active - lacrosse, scuba diving, swimming, tennis, volleyball, horseback riding, skydiving, and exercising. I also enjoy coaching my high school women's lacrosse team at Lamar High School, and when I can, I love to jump on a plane to visit different countries around the world!
I am half Turkish and half Danish, so my family is spread around the planet. This contributes to my love and appreciation for different ideas, opinions, foods, languages, and cultures.
I first came to Cera and Airrosti after a debilitating sports-related shoulder injury that wasn't going away on its own and to which surgery was not an option. Cera carefully put together a treatment plan tailored specifically for me that ultimately led to a full recovery. Her level of care and concern was unparalleled. Her reassurance and compassion gave me hope that I could make a full recovery even when I was initially skeptical. Thanks to Cera and Airrosti I did make a full recovery and am back in the gym and leading an active, pain-free life!†
Thanks to Dr. Vick and her team at Airrosti, they fixed my lumbar and hip pain fast -- just like they advertise. And because my insurance covered the treatments, I got pain relief in four visits for $200 in lieu of regular PT which would have been 12 visits for $600. I have been recommending Airrosti to everyone I know with back pain!
When I stumbled upon Airrosti I was certain I was destined to live with chronic lower back pain and sciatica. Dr. Anatolia Vick was amazing and the Airrostic model of care works. Dr. Vick is a great communicator, and she and Cera Southerland are a great team when coordinating your care and follow up. The Airrosti model works only if you are willing to commit to the prescribed program. The program is hard work, but it yields results. I would recommend Airrosti to anyone that might need a non-invasive, drug free approach to pain relief. I would also recommend Dr. Vick; she's a consummate professional.
I arrived in Houston for the summer and was in a car accident, t-boned and completely blindsided in an intersection with my two small children in the car. The kids were fine, my car was totaled, but I was dealing with significant neck and upper back pain. As an athletic trainer, I am acutely aware of my options for treating non-surgical neck pain and none of them (family Med, ortho, PMR, PT, traditional chiropractic) felt like the right choice. A fellow AT, Kenneth, had introduced me to Airrosti and I decided to give it a shot. As it turns out, this was the perfect choice for my pain. Dr. Vick and Cera listened intently, formulated a plan, and were able to return me to pain-free movement in 3 visits. Dr. Vick is exceptionally talented in manual therapy and movement, helping to release the muscles that were tight and painful. Cera provides an exercise prescription that was the perfect complement and allowed to maintain the progress I had made from treatment. Thank you, Dr. Vick and Cera, for all of your work and help!
My low back pain was restricting my everyday life, and after 3 visits with Dr. Vick and Cera, the pain was gone. And everyday life is back to normal.
My knee was hurting during and after my runs. Iím no stranger to knee pain, but this was differently located and very specific. Dr. Vick diagnosed me with IT band issues. Several sessions later, when my knee pain was feeling much better, I talked to her about my shoulder pain. Later, I returned for a new pain in my foot. With each new pain, Dr. Vick spent a lot of time listening to me and applying pressure where it hurt. Cera trained me on strength exercises and foam rolling. Following their instructions and treatment plan, I quickly saw improvement as my pains subsided. They are very knowledgeable and helpful, and I would definitely recommend them for anyoneís sports-related injuries and pains!
I have been suffering from plantar fasciitis since 2012, I would run 3-4 miles 4 days a week, stopped running in 2014....when I stopped running is when I noticed the plantar fasciitis pain...and it progressively got worst! I had other friends with the same issue and they kept pushing me to go to a podiatrist for an Injection, but the thought of a needle going into my foot did not sit very well! I was tagged on an ad for Airrosti from a friend, and read the testimonials, and thought...let me try it! Why I didnít call sooner, I donít know! Dr. Vick and Cera are amazing! Dr. Vick listened to my concerns, talked to me about the anatomy of where the source of my pain was coming from once I pointed it out! She had me walk and noticed how I shift my foot one direction when I walked and told me not to become OCD of my walking (which I kind of did) :) but to pay attention and focus on lifting off on my big toes vs the little toes! Her massages hit the spot EVERYTIME!!! Ceraís 30-minute rehabs weíre on point! They make a great team and I am forever grateful to both of them because today, after 5 sessions I was discharged with no more plantar fasciitis pain!!!!!! Thank you, Dr. Vick and Cera!! I also do not want to leave out the check-in process, they greet you by name, and treat you like a friend/ person....you are just not a patient to them! :)
I came to Airrosti with pain on my right side; neck, shoulder, back of my skull and back. I had been suffering for months with pain on the right side to the point that even my ears hurt from it. I went from seeing an ENT for ear issues and nothing to a Neurologist for the headaches and nothing; all tests normal. Started getting massages on a regular basis and chiropractic adjustments and those helped but in a couple of days, the pain came back. I had 2 treatments with Airrosti and finally pain free! I so thankful for Cera and Dr. Vick for taking care of me and being so knowledgeable and caring with what they do.
Came in due to a strained right hip flexor (soccer injury). Dr.Vick and Cera are the dynamic duo that were tasked with getting me back on the field as quickly as possible. I am a very happy and satisfied patient. Went from trying to do stretching and foam roller and hoping I would heal to a process. That process is a great combo of soft tissue work (Dr.Vick) and mobilization, exercises, and focused movements supervised and tasked by Cera. Highly recommend Airrosti and specifically Dr.Vick at the West University location.
My story starts with me believing that I could still throw a fastball at 35 years of age, like I used to at 16...with no warmup...having not thrown SINCE I was 16! One impingement in my right shoulder later, and I found myself at Airrosti under the wonderful care of Dr. Vick and Recovery Specialist Southerland. In 4 visits (with CONSISTENT home PT between) I went from having pain while holding a full mug of coffee, to full mobility with no pain and gaining strength back enough to lift a 20lb weight. I will always recommend both of these professional ladies, as well Airrosti in general. Thank you both for your knowledge and help!! Thank you Airrosti for getting me back to normal!
"AIRROSTI has been a game changer in our household, vastly improving quality of life for both my husband and me. As a result, when my 8 year old daughter was recently having severe, chronic headaches, I thought of AIRROSTI for her as a possible treatment option. My daughter had experienced 4 week-long headaches within a three month period, and we desperately wanted to find her relief. The headaches had been affecting every aspect of her life, including causing many missed days of school and an inability to consistently participate in extracurricular activities. †Within 24 hours of the first AIRROSTI treatment, my daughter had her first pain free day in 11 days and she was able to stop taking pain reliever daily. She could definitely feel the difference in the reduced tension in her neck, shoulders, and upper back. - Dr. Vick was great about customizing the treatment to her age and tolerance level. My daughter was enthusiastic about her second and third treatments because she could appreciate the difference in how she felt. It has also been very helpful that my daughter has been given the tools to help manage her own health through the stretching exercises she has been taught. Our family continues to be thankful we found AIRROSTI. We are delighted to have access to such an amazing resource. Barbara McLaughlin
I called for a follow up rehab for my frozen shoulder, and I had Dr. Vick this time. Itís been two years from my initial diagnosis and after having done all the necessary tests and cortisone shots as well as home exercises, I decided to try rehab again. Dr. Vick helped a lot in improving my mobility and pain. Our conversation during rehab reduced the pain from the treatment. I would recommend her to anybody I know. Thank you, Dr. Vick.
I was four weeks away from my World Championship powerlifting meet when I began to have pain in my bicep and my left peck which created issues for me bench pressing. I was referred to Dr. Vick who took the time to really work with me and was extremely thorough and knowledgeable on how to get me ready. After 3 weeks of consistently visiting with Dr. Vick, I was able to compete in my world meet and placed 1st first place. Thank you, Dr. Vick, for helping me be successful in my meet, I could not have done it without you!
I visited Dr. Vick from Airrosti with two separate issues. First one is upper back pain where I could feel the pain but was not able to pinpoint the exact location of pain. Dr. Vick diagnosed the injury and quickly identified the root cause. She was very friendly, attentive to the patient, and is really an expert in her field. She was able to completely cure the pain in 2 visits. She followed up with me after each visit to make sure I am progressing well with my recovery. The stretches I learned are very useful to target the muscle group and relieve pain. The second issue is cubital tunnel syndrome where my hand goes numb frequently. Dr. Vick diagnosed and confirmed it's the Ulnar nerve compression that's causing the numbness. She was very clear with what to expect from the treatment. She clearly told me that she can most likely solve the issue but in case there's no improvement after the first two days of treatment, she will refer to a neurophysician for further treatment. But she was able to pinpoint the exact location where the nerve was trapped and treated the pain area. The numbness is 90% gone after 3 visits. I am more than thrilled to see the progress in such a short time, especially for something that has been bothering me for a long time. Not only treating the pain, I feel that Dr. Vick gave me the education and tools to take care of these issues if they come back again in future. And all this was achieved with no medicines whatsoever. Dr. Vick is really the best, and I am very thankful to her!! Regards, Sudheer Indala
When I first visited Dr. Vick, I was hesitant to try Airrosti, but I was on FMLA and had exhausted all options for recuperating my back. In total, I was off of work for 4.5 months with back pain. During the first visit, Dr. Vick released muscles in my hips around my SI joints. Though my SI nerves were ablated, the pain did not reflect any procedure had taken place until Dr. Vick loosened the area. It took 7-8 visits for Dr. Vick to perform treatments on my entire body. She brought me tremendous relief and restored my quality of life! Iím back at work finally, and my back is doing well. Iím extremely grateful for Dr. Vickís insightful and compassionate care.
As a recreational triathlete and father of 7 kids, I'm constantly in motion. In early September I felt a pain on the inside of my right elbow and decided to "wait and see" if it would heal on its own, which it didn't. I've had such a great experience with Airrosti previously that I went back but this time to a location near my work. That is when I met Dr. Vick. She was able to quickly identify the root cause and over several treatments, I was able to regain full range of motion. However, the difference for me was her follow up to make sure I was doing the right things to take care of my recovery and most importantly she gave me all the knowledge I need to continually strengthen my arm on a go forward basis.
Iíd been dealing with TMJ pain for a little over 10 years, sometimes it was worse than others but I figured there wasnít much that could be done besides surgery which was not an option. I started seeing Dr. Vick for this problem and after the first visit, I could see the difference. She was able to get my pain from a regular 2-3 on most days to 0-1. She showed me how to keep my muscles relaxed and get me back to belting songs out without having to worry about my jaw locking, popping or hurting. I am officially able to go back to singing without worrying about that and she has shown me so many ways to treat those specific muscles if the problem were to return. Thank you so much, Dr. Vick!!!
I had some pain and discomfort in my right elbow and tricep. In three one hour visits, Dr. Vick worked on my issue with therapy and rehab. I also received rehab I could do at home which helped speed up my recovery. I'm happy to say I'm pain free and back at the gym.
Dr. Vick is so passionate and caring about her patients and she helped me so much as I had been having problems with my hip. I had gone to many doctors and they never found a solution. So Iím happy I found her because things have changed for the better!
Dr. Vick has helped me greatly with treatments for a variety of physical problems, such as my neck which has been a problem for years and an ankle injury I sustained recently teaching a self-defense class. The treatments have also relieved much of the stiffness, soreness, and discomfort of my daily active life. As a life-long martial artist, military veteran and the owner of a fitness business, my body has taken its fair share of abuse and injuries. The deep tissue treatment is unlike anything I have experienced before and the results have been life changing. I highly recommend Dr. Vick to anyone looking for a solution to their long term pain as well as anyone looking to relieve general soreness or rehabilitate from an injury.
Dr. Vick was warm and welcoming. Being that this was my first ever chiropractic visit, she immediately put me at ease. Her professional demeanor calmed my nerves. She answered all of my questions and made sure I felt comfortable throughout the visit.
I was suffering from chronic wrist pain in my right arm from a previous injury and numbness and pain in my left wrist and thumb. By the end of the day for several months straight, my wrists and forearms would be in so much pain that I would lose feeling, grip strength and even have difficulty picking up my kids. My daily quality of life was slipping away from me and enough was enough! Within 3 visits of being treated by Dr. Vick I haven't complained about daily wrist pain, I haven't lost grip strength in picking up the barbell and I've had no trouble picking up my kids, carseats or strollers. I'm so grateful to have my quality of daily physical activity back! Thank you Dr. Vick!!! I highly recommend Airrosti for anyone suffering from musculoskeletal pain and injury!
