I was recommended to Airrosti by a friend who went for hamstring issues. I’m a high school track athlete and injuries in the sport are very technical. With it being the middle of the season I had no time to be out for more than 1 meet. My injury was a quad strain from the triple jump event. I tried to ignore it and jump the meet following the meet I was injured at. It was excruciating pain and I didn’t think I would triple jump again until the end of the season. I tried out what my friend recommended and only had 2 treatments before I had a full recovery with all the pain miraculously gone. I was super excited to tell Dr. Jake that his treatment was perfect and how happy I was to be in and out. I never like to go to doctors or trainers so I’m not held captive by them so coming to Airrosti was a big leap for me. But as advertised I was in and out as quick as consultation and 2 treatments with quick on your own therapy exercises. I really am happy with the results I got from here a...+ show morend would 10/10 recommend to a friend. If you have something all out of whack don’t think twice about going to Airrosti. One word to describe it- miraculous. Dr. Jake Tijerina knows his stuff without a doubt and will take care of you without holding you captive and juicing you for money.
"I have struggled with significant back pain since 2013 and have been diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos. I did get some relief in 2014 from injections and Mckenzie Method Therapy. In June of this year, I fell down my stairs and have had a flare up of symptoms that the Mckenzie exercises could not control. I had been doing water physical therapy for the past 3 months with relief for a few hours but the symptoms would come back. One Friday after water therapy both of the bottoms of my feet began to burn like I was walking on blisters and my tailbone felt like something was stabbing it. I wasn't able to work for 4 days. On the 4th day, I was able to get an appointment with Dr. Tijerina. My boss had mentioned Airrosti months before and I was desperate for relief. After my first appointment, I experienced relief instantly. The most important thing that Dr. Tijerina has done for me gives me my thinking back. I don't think about the pain constantly and how the activity will affect me and life. I'm...+ show more not physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausted from work or the smallest activity. Yes, I would leave work and cry all the way home in pain and my commute is an hour of sitting while it felt like something was stabbing my tailbone. Just 2 weeks ago I would reserve my energy and body for work by not doing anything but work. because anything outside work would cause me to have so much pain I would miss work or be miserable at work. The biggest thing for me was this past Wednesday after the Astros had won the World Series in Baseball (Go Astros!!) I didn't think twice about running out of the house, getting in my car and running up to the sporting goods store to get my World Series T-shirts. In fact, I stood in line for over 3 hours with 15 shirts in my arms without thinking about pain. It wasn't until about the 3rd hour that I noticed all these people sitting on the tables in a line, rubbing their backs, leaning on shopping carts, and stretching. I couldn't believe I felt no pain.
