I had this terrible pain in my upper back and neck that lasted for weeks. The pain was at its worst whenever I tried to sit or lay down, and it was driving me crazy. I’m a working college student so not being able to sleep or sit for long periods of time was an issue. However, after one visit with Dr. Niño, I was finally able to get some quality sleep, and after the second visit, I was able to sit for 30 minutes at a time without any pain. She pointed out the problem areas in my back, relieved my pain, and showed me the proper exercises to reinforce my back muscles and prevent future issues. Throughout the whole process, Dr. Niño was incredibly professional and understanding. After a couple of weeks of treatment, the pain was gone, and…+ show more I was able to resume all of my everyday activities. I’m very grateful to Dr. Niño and the team at Airrosti for helping me get back to normal.

1 treatment is all it took for my knee pain to be relieved! Even an ortho doctor thought microscopic surgery would be required… I would highly recommend Stephanie @ Airrosti to anyone!

On March 30th, 2018, I woke up with an extremely swollen and irritated ankle. I did not know what could have caused it. I had not fallen, stumbled, rolled off anything, or had any type of accident that would lead me to believe I had injured it. I researched and talked to friends with the condition and tried everything under the sun for pain relief associated with the “flareup”. This went on for weeks. I continued slamming pain meds and roughing through the intense pain. Before my insurance stopped at the end of October 2018, I reached out to a local ankle and foot doctor. He set me up with some x-rays, and MRI, and then shot my ankle up with meds using a very large needle. The pain continued. It plagued me until my girlfriend’s close fri…+ show moreends came to visit. Tyrell said there was a place called Airrosti that his sister worked for out of Austin, TX. A quick Google searched revealed there was a location right down the street from my house. The receptionist welcomed me with open arms. Dr. Nino rounded the corner with her beaming eyes and welcoming attitude. Her delivery was perfect, and I was shocked that a sprain could be so painful for this length of time. I walked, WALKED, without a limp for the first time exactly one year to the day (almost). It’s intense. VERY INTENSE, but it works. I ran for the first time tonight in over a year. I walked all day on concrete in a shop environment, on ladders, and then shopped at the grocery store. Dr. Nino and Lauren cared about me. It was about me and how I needed to get better, so I could get back to me and my adventures.

I had what felt like a shoulder issue between my shoulder blade and spine, that annoying area. I needed the pain to go away because I was testing for my kettlebell instructor certification. I was able to get an appointment right away. Dr. Niño is delightful, professional, knowledgeable, and best of all a very down-to-earth, and easy-to-talk-to human. Her approach in my treatment got me back in training form in a week, and now I have a new friend. The whole team at Airrosti is the best!

I came to Stephanie with a shoulder sprain when I was unable to do anything overhead for many weeks, including handstands. In our first session, Stephanie was very professional and knowledgeable about the source of my pain and provided great context into the connected muscles. At the end of the first session, I felt no pain when I went overhead, but I was also able to do a handstand at Airrosti! Instantly, I was hooked! Since that session, I have seen Stephanie for multiple injuries over the past two years and in all of those instances, I was healed in 3-4 sessions. Even if I haven’t come in for months, Stephanie was always kind and followed up with me regarding my activities and how my body was holding up. She is very thoughtful and con…+ show moresiderate and always thinks of her patients first. I would HIGHLY recommend her to everyone I know and that is an understatement!
