Over the past several years I have multiple back surgeries, neck surgery and many smaller injuries. After healing from surgery it is common to have other issues occur because you walk differently, bend differently and it causes stress on other parts of the body…Dr. Rutledge has always worked magic. Not only does he focus intently on your issue at hand, he thinks about things I don’t and makes connections that have always helped. On top of that he is a heck of a nice person.

Had great pain from routine workouts. Dr. Rutledge assigned different exercises and massages to assist with my treatment plan. Both were efficient and effective and I am grateful. Thank you Dr. Rutledge and physical therapy team.

I have suffered from lower back pain my whole life but it wasn’t until the condition of my lower back started seriously affecting the daily life that I sought help from Dr. Rutledge. Only three visits and I am back to daily exercise and feeling better than I have in thirty years. Aside from the hands-on therapy, he provided counseling and exercises that not only relieved my pain, it will enable me to take personal control of my health and remain pain-free for years to come. I wish I would have found him years ago!

I cannot say enough about Dr. Rutledge and his staff! I am simply amazed at my recovery and how far I came in such a short period of time. I literally was in so much pain with my back and had seen so many doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, etc. that I was at the point I thought I would never get better. I was sleeping on the floor and with so many pillows to prop my legs up as I slept and was in tears every day. I have been a dance teacher and a school teacher for years and have always been very active, so being in so much pain and not being able to find relief was overwhelming. Then, my prayers were answered when I heard about Airrosti! Dr. Rutledge listened to everything I had tried previously and helped me work on the areas t+ show morehat were causing me the most pain. His staff was able to give me resistance band exercises that I did daily that truly helped me improve so quickly, and I was soon feeling back to my regular self!!! I was shocked at how fast I was finding relief! I can honestly say I would recommend anyone and everyone go see Dr. Rutledge for any type of pain! I know that if I have any pain in the future, instead of wasting my time and money going from doctor to doctor trying to find relief I will go straight to Dr. Rutledge! Thank you again Airrosti!!!

As a CrossFit athlete and trainer, I sometimes encounter aches and pains from my workouts. Stuart is always my go to guy for getting me back in shape. A few months ago, I suffered a freak shoulder/elbow injury a week before a competition and Stuart not only worked me into his busy schedule on short notice, but got me game ready and even helped me at the competition to ensure I was safe and pain free. We refer a lot of our athletes to Stuart who comes to us with chronic pain in their knees, hips, and back. By combining Stuart’s advice and adapting CrossFit movements to fit our athlete’s needs, we have a high rate of athletes, especially older clients, becoming pain free after a lifetime of discomfort. His work, bedside manner, and ability+ show more to interpret patients needs is unparalleled in the Houston area. Stuart will always have our recommendation to athletes and people alike with chronic or sudden pain.

I had severe pain in my forearm that was quickly spreading to my upper arm and shoulder. Within 4 visits my pain was virtually gone. I then began receiving treatment for my low back which was quite painful. within 3 visits the pain was gone. I highly recommend Airrosti for pain relief and proper education on things you can do at home to assist in your recovery.

First… Despite what you may have heard, not all Airrosti treatment is super intense. I’ve had several different areas worked on by Dr. Rutledge and had success with varying therapy intensities. I have had chronic back problems for 30 years and had another “issue”, so I went to Dr. Rutledge with a very painful, tender and totally locked up lower back, which was affecting my work and home life. He conducted a thorough interview, did a manual assessment of my back and immediately began working on my HIP, not my back like several other doctors had done. In a matter of minutes there was noticeable improvement in my pain level and especially range of motion. He then gave me some basic, neutral spine exercises to work on for a couple days bef+ show moreore my next treatment. There was improvement from my initial condition, and the area of pain had been reduced significantly. My second appointment he targeted my hip area and after 25 minutes of seriously intense therapy, I felt a steady release in the area. Pain gone, attitude changed. I now have a plan to strengthen my back to hopefully avoid a return visit. Thanks Doc!

I highly recommended Dr. Rutledge and the other Airrosti providers to my friends and family. Dr Rutledge is very knowledgable and has a great sense of humor. He helped me not only feel better, but helped me understand what exactly my body was doing to cause the pain. I have had tremendous improvement and will continue with the tools and exercises he has shown me to improve my health. Thank you so much!

I had been having an extremely hard time with my left hip and thigh. Some days my hip hurt so bad that I could barely tolerate the pain. After 1 1/2 years of this, I went to see Dr. Rutledge. I could only lift my left leg forward and to the left with severe pain. I saw Dr. Rutledge 3 times in all. After the first visit, I was a new person. The pain was almost totally gone. He gave my exercises and a stretching band to use at home. I followed his instructions and each week I was better. I have just completed the 3rd visit and now am pain free. I am doing things that I have not been able to do for 1 1/2 years!! EX: simple thing….I can do again…sit on the floor and get up from the floor!! Yay!! Airrosti is not comfortable+ show more at the time is it being administered, but the results are lift changing!! Thank you, Dr. Rutledge for giving my movement back!!! I will recommend Dr. Rutledge and Airrosti to anyone that I can!!
