If you have at least visited a chiropractor for pain, this is your next step. I know, this whole physical therapy and these pseudoscience claims are everywhere but this is not that, take this from a skeptic, this works. Do your own independent research on your own to understand the therapy process that's being done. After my experience here, I will never visit a chiropractor again. Minimal visits needed, but you have to work with the exercises at home as well. Yes, the sessions hurt, a lot. Mostly during the first sessions, but do you prefer chronic pain or a few minutes of an although very uncomfortable process, but relief from the chronic pain? From my 20's to 30's, I had moderate (flairs were to 'severe') chronic back pain. Of course I c...+ show moreannot say it's cured, but for the specific reason I got the treatments, it is, since I have a 12hr desk job and no longer have back issues sitting down. Since the treatments, exercises and life style (ie-posture and exercise) education, I cannot recall the last time I could feel back pain unless I was lifting heavy objects consistently.

I was first introduced to Dr. Sue years ago when he opened his Airrosti practice in the area, and he introduced himself to our gym community. I was skeptical of the patient outcomes that were claimed since both my wife and brother are physical therapists and am familiar with more traditional therapy practices. I run a sports performance and CrossFit Gym. I am very protective of our reputation and who we have our athletes see for issues/injuries. After sending a few of our athletes to see him with incredible success, I tweaked my shoulder and decided to give him a try. I have since seen him three times and each time I have been very impressed with the entire process. Last year I decided to run a marathon. I am not a runner but I have always ...+ show moretold myself and others that I would run one, and I'm not getting any younger so it was time to just do it. Three weeks out I tweaked my calf and thought I wouldn't be able to run it as I wasn't able to make it even a mile on my training run. I went to see Dr. Sue hoping to possibly feel well enough to run, but I wasn't expecting to feel well enough to do it. Dr. Sue and his staff helped recover so I could not only run, they helped me with a strategy for pacing to help me meet my goal time without over stressing my calf. I was beyond happy with the outcome. I talk often about my experience with Airrosti and Dr. Sue, and continue to send not only athletes from my gym but my coworkers in the fire service to see him.

I started training for a half marathon approximately 6 months postpartum. I was very active pre-pregnancy (running, yoga, CrossFit) and was trying to gradually work back up to my previous level of fitness. I started developing left knee pain approximately 4 months into my training (approximately 2 months before the race). I attempted to treat the problem myself through ice, medication, stretching, etc. however nothing was relieving the pain. Because of my busy schedule working full-time and being a full-time mom, I decided to see Dr. Sue at Airrosti since I had seen him before for a different issue and knew how efficient and effective his techniques were. After 3 visits of specific soft tissue techniques, coupled with stabilization, strengt...+ show morehening and stretching techniques (along with a home exercise program) I was essentially pain free. I was able to complete the half marathon, running the entire race, pain free and without compensation. Since running the race, I have continued to be pain free and have also been able to continue running (as well as participate in other activities like CrossFit, and chasing after my little one) without restriction. The entire experience at Airrosti has been nothing but positive. The treatment techniques and comprehensive patient plan were both excellent, and the customer service was phenomenal! Thank you, to both Dr. Sue and Taylor, for taking such great care of me!!

When I came into Airrosti I could barely move due to a series of muscles that I injured in my back, hips, and glutes. Dr. Sue to an aggressive stance on getting me in for multiple visits right away. On my first day of the injury I could barely put one foot in front of the other, and would have a full spasm just trying to stand up or sit down. Within my first three appointments I stopped getting nervous about getting in and out of the car because the spasms had pretty much stopped. Within a month I was back to light workouts, and two months from my initial visit I am back to regular workouts. Airrosti definitely helped get me back to training faster than any other medical facility that I have visited in the past.

The treatment and service provided by Dr. Sue has been second to none. I have been a perennial Regional CrossFit Competitor and CrossFit Affiliate Owner. I have put a lot of wear and tear on my body and had severely hurt my back earlier in the year. I had been looking for someone to help with treatment with little success and even littler results. After one session with Dr. Sue I had results, his knowledge, skill, and professionalism were phenomenal, I would recommend Dr. Sue to my clients and friends. I know if not for his outstanding work I would still be having issues limiting my training, career and personal life.

I was skeptical at first because I had struggled with my ankle injury for years. I initially hurt it playing soccer over 6 years ago and nothing seemed to help, so I just learned to play with the pain. The first Airrosti was definitely challenging, but I began to notice a major difference after the second session. By the third session I was actually pain-free when I played and couldn't believe it! I continue to keep up on my exercises but I still haven't had any problems. I'm so thankful that Airrosti was to help my ankle in such a positive way, and now my 'normal' doesn't have to include pain.

I first came into contact with Airrosti providers while competing at the 2013 CrossFit Games in CA. They took good care of my fellow athletes and me at the Games in 2014 as well and since then, I have sought out the help and care of a local provider. Dr. Raymond Sue has kindly put his time and efforts into fixing my old broken 48-year-old body...namely elbow tendonitis and lower back/hip pain. I own a CrossFit gym in Bellevue and highly recommend his services to all my athletes. Quality treatment; quality service.

I've been an athlete all my life, so injuries were just something that have been part of my life too. Unfortunately, after my late-20s and passing 30, I noticed a huge difference in recovery time. It was normal to wake up with some new pain, but you wait a week, month, 3 months, and things went away. After I turned over 30, things just don't go away. I wake up with a new pain, and that pain doesn't go away. I was able to move my arm, but I couldn't bring it above my head. No problem, rest a week, month, 6 months, 1 yearâ€¦still hurts! Ankle sprain? Dealt with it before; no problem. Still restricted, still painful after months of rest! My boss introduced me to Dr. Ray Sue. I started to think I'm too old to compete as an athlete; that I s...+ show morehould just stay "fit" for health and maybe focus on coaching. It took a few sessions to notice that I indeed WAS getting better! Just a few months ago, I thought of giving up. But thanks to AIRROSTI and Dr. Sue, now I know there's such thing as "no pain". It's like I found the Holy Grail or something. I can't thank him enough for what he's done physically, mentally, and emotionally.

I have been doing CrossFit for almost 3 years. For that time, I have remained relatively injury free. I competed in the 2013 CrossFit Games and had again qualified for the 2014 CrossFit Games. In June I was training for the Games in July when I strained a ligament in my calf to hamstring area. I could barely walk let alone continue training. I feared I would not be able to compete in the Games in July. I made an appointment with Dr. Ray Sue who assured me right away he could take care of the issue and get me training again. Those first couple sessions with Dr. Ray were a little rough in that the area was pretty tender. Dr. Ray can bring some pain with just 1 thumb! Sure enough within a few days I was back to some light training and within t...+ show morewo weeks I was running again and training for the 2014 CrossFit Games.

About 4 years ago, I broke my right foot. After that healed, I started having issues with my right hip, glute, and lower back. I would go to a sports medicine doctor, then see a physical therapist, and things would be better. Yet, after a while, my glute/lower back would still bother me during my kickboxing classes. For 3 years I just lived with this issue. It wasn't enough to stop me from exercising, but I definitely couldn't last as long as I used to. Finally, I decided to see Dr. Sue and find out what he could do. After 2 visits, I already noticed significant improvement. The real test of his work came when I decided to do a 2 day kickboxing workshop. Normally, I'd be stretching a lot in between sets. This time, I realized that I didn't ...+ show morehave to! The dull ache I normally felt was barely there! I can also tell that my agility has improved since seeing him. I am very glad to be moving around how I used to before being injured. Admittedly, I still have to be diligent about my therapy exercises, and the way I still move probably favors that side of my body. However, I'm so satisfied to finally get some progress toward being free of this chronic pain!
