Became an Airrosti Provider:
Parker College Chiropractic
University Louisiana at Monroe
I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, hiking, anything outdoors, golf and crossfit.
I was born and raised in Eunice, LA and was a three sport athlete in high school. I played football in college at University Louisiana Monroe. I have one daughter that has changed my life for the better. I am a big sports fan and I am a big fan of the New Orleans Saints, Texas Rangers, Dallas Mavericks, LSU and ULM. I have a one pet, a maltese named Emmy.
I came to Airrosti with a sciatica issue. The pain started in my lower back and radiated down my leg. Dr. Bertrand was very friendly and informative and I met with him several times. While the treatment he provided, as well as the exercises suggested by JD, were helpful for a limited time we found they were not resolving my issue. Dr. Bertrand then suggested an MRI which showed a severely herniated disc. I was referred to a neurosurgeon and have since had a minimally invasive microdiscectomy which provided instant relief from my pain. I appreciate the respect, concern, and guidance the team at Airrosti provided. I also appreciate that they do not continue to treat you if the treatment is not working. I would definitely recommend the team at Airrosti.
As a flight attendant at Southwest, my job is very physical. After back surgery, I developed piriformis syndrome (the piriformis spasms around the sciatic nerve). I was in pain 24/7. My neurosurgeon recommended Airrosti. I limped into Dr. Bertrand's Airrosti office and walked out! Dr. Bertrand told me I would need 7 appts. After 5 appts I was feeling great, so he released me. He didn't talk me into more appts than I needed. Now when It flares up I control it with the physical therapy they taught me. Occasionally I can't control it and 1-2 visits and I back to normal. Best of all no drugs! Thank you, Dr. Bertrand!
I'm extremely happy with the treatment and quick results I received from Dr. Bertrand and Alana. It was a direct answer to my prayers. I had been having fairly intense pain in my hip for about a year before seeking medical treatment. Thankfully, my primary care doctor recommended Airrosti treatment with Dr. Bertrand. Within 4 days of my first treatment, my pain level had been reduced by 40-50%. After only 2 visits (and about 10 days of home prescribed stretching and strengthening exercises), my hip was pain free, and complete mobility was restored! Thank you Dr. Bertrand and Alana!
After multiple failed attempts at half Ironman distance races, I sought out Dr. Bertrand for help! I had been told by doctors that I would need surgery in order to fix my pain from years of running. Dr. Bertrand was able to use techniques to reduce and eventually fix my pain. After years of endurance racing, I finally meet someone who has been able to help! Dr Bertrand was able to fix the soft tissue issues that I had causing pain. After only 4 visits, I was pain free, more importantly, I had the knowledge for the future to remain pain free! Two 140.6 Ironman races later, I remain free, due to the expertise of Dr Bertrand and AIRROSTI. I cant not speak highly enough about the time/money&pain he has saved me!
I injured my shoulder in July of 2013 which caused frozen shoulder or joint encapsulitis to set in later that fall. My family doctor recommeneded airrosti from the start but my insurance did not cover it so I went to an orthopedic and went through their physical therapy program. This was very helpful early on and did help improve my range of motion but after a few months of sessions they said they had done all they could for me and recommended soft tissue therapy to complete my recovery. Still in pain I signed up for deep tissue massage for a couple months which provided some short term relief but all in all it did not improve my condition. In January of 2016, 2 1/2 years after the injury, still in pain and not quite full range of motion I threw in the towel and decided to try airrosti even though my insurance still did not cover the treatment. After each session with Dr. Bertrand and his technician Elena I had more and more relief. After 6 sessions I had significantly less pain, better range of motion and less grinding of the joint as I moved my arm through full range of motion. I had also been suffering from "dead hand" which was waking me up multiple time nightly. Dr. Bertrand helped identify the nerve who's path had become obstructed by the overproduction of tissue caused by the frozen shoulder. He gave me some exercise's to help improve "clearance" of the nerve path which has resulted in being able to sleep through the night once again! I am encouraged by the results airrosti has given me and highly recommend it!
After struggling with leg pain for 12 years and pursuing all kinds of (failed) solutions, I finally have found the pain relief that I believe will lead me back to health. Airrosti has given me immediate relief and real hope in this long struggle. Thank you Dr. Bertrand!
