I have been to Airrosti for multiple injuries, but most recently I went in for my shoulder after a traumatic car accident. The program wasn’t easy, but I had immediate results, and it was great to use the app to map trends in pain, hold myself accountable, etc. Dr. McGowan is a total pro, and was a great cheerleader throughout my recovery.

I consulted with Dr. McGowan via remote recovery visit for acute pain in my ribs under my armpit. She diagnosed it as Slipping Rib Syndrome, quickly mailed PT-quality equipment to my house, prescribed a series of exercises to alleviate the pain. She met with me virtually once a week to check on my progress, adjust exercises, and advise on my treatment plan, until the pain stopped. She was also available by text through the app, and quickly answered all my questions. I resorted to remote chiropractic help because of a spike in Covid-19, but I honestly didn’t have high expectations for remote chiropractic work. I was very happily surprised at the level of care and concern, tailored treatment plan, constant communication — and success of t+ show morehe treatment. I’m a convert. I highly recommend Airrosti and Dr. McGowan.

Very professional care. Targeted and customized just for me. In my case, I should be able to avoid this injury again, thanks to my set of stretches and exercises. This regimen will complement my running and the strength classes that I attend at the gym. Dr. McGowan in Houston was fantastic at listening and asking questions and diagnosing and following up! My treatment was all via “Airrosti Remote Recovery”, and that worked perfectly for me. If I get another sports injury, I will consider going in-person, because I have at least 10 providers I can drive to in San Antonio, but I will also consider using Remote Recovery again. It was very convenient, and there was zero hassle of getting to my appointments. I did not sacrifice any quality by+ show more using the remote option. Dr. McGowan told me to do ranges of motion, and by her clinical process, diagnosed and treated me as well as an in-person visit. Thank you, Airrosti and Dr. McGowan.

I came in for my first visit with tennis elbow. I was wearing a brace for support that went from above my elbow almost to my wrist. Lifting anything with my right arm was painful at best, even drinking coffee! After the first visit, I began to feel relief, and was able to stop using the brace! The stretching and exercises I was given to do were simple but effective. With each succeeding visit, I was given a few more exercises for at-home recuperation. When I finished my fourth and final visit my pain and discomfort were almost gone. The stretching and exercises I continue to do at home take less than 10 minutes. My quality of life is so much better, I can sleep better, I can carry groceries, and I can drink coffee without wincing! Dr. Mc+ show moreGowan is the BEST!!

I came to Dr. McGowan suffering from a knee injury. My knee was swollen, I could barely walk and the pain was now affecting other areas because of the discomfort. I had already spoken to 2 other doctors who clearly couldn’t help outside of prescribed meds and suggested rest. Dr. McGowan however quickly found the problem areas and knew what methods of treatment were necessary. What I especially loved, was the fact the she not only treated the injury but also educated me on the cause, body function and how the steps to recovery would be executed. Her expertise has to place her at the top in her field. I am eternally grateful that I found her and she was able to help me at a time when I was suffering the most. Thank you Dr. McGowan for ever+ show moreything.
