PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

My right leg pain began about January of 2020. So I decided to visit Amy at her office for a consultation. I began multiple sessions of different exercises and massages. Amy was very helpful and attentive throughout the sessions. After 3 months or so, Amy suggested I would have to visit a specialist due to my continuing sciatic pain. I ended up going to multiple doctors and specialists for the next several months. Since I was in El Paso at that time, due to the pandemic, I still needed help, but couldn’t find anyone to do an MRI. All this time Amy continued to contact me and thanks to her, I was able to get someone to do an MRI after months of pain and finally surgery due to a herniated disc. But all this time, Amy continued to be in contact with me to see how I was doing. It’s April 2021 and Amy still continues to be in contact to see how I’m doing. Amy Nguyen is a very caring and very good doctor in her sessions at her office. Very highly recommended.

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 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.

Dr. Pavlich was super helpful when it came to my back pain caused by an old injury and added stress. He was super encouraging but also helped me figure out ways to get these exercises into my routine and so I wouldn't forget them. He worked with me constantly to figure out what worked best and what didn't. The videos and kit are great and I'm glad I can watch them over the phone.

I was having pain in my right shoulder. I couldn't lie on that side (and I sleep on that side so I had interrupted sleep), I had trouble with rotation and lifting things. I live in the middle of nowhere so I have to take a day off to go to Airrosti. But I was able to have an Airrosti Remote Recovery visit and Dr. Tom was able to help me. I am pain-free and am able to sleep and move my shoulder! Thank you, thank you, thank you Airrosti and Dr. Tom!

I had been contemplating having my hip replaced, but felt I was too young and wanted an alternative option. Our school district offered Airrosti through our insurance, so I decided to attend a group zoom explaining what the program entailed. While on the zoom, I made sure the doctor knew my hip joint was bone on bone before deciding to move forward with the program. After the zoom, I was contacted by Dr. Anthony Pavlich about two days later. From the moment we were in contact, Dr. Pavlich showed a sense of understanding and knowledge of how to help the pain in my hip. I was assigned several stretching exercises and asked to complete them daily. Within a week, the pain in my hip went from about a 9 to about a 4.5. After our second zoom, Dr. Pavlich tweaked my stretching program to accommodate what we both felt was working and what needed to be changed. The weeks I have time to rest and stretch, my hip stays below a 5 pain threshold and there were a couple of days I was pain-free. I did ...+ show morehave a setback when I had to work a track meet and took over 20,000 steps in one day. The pain did shoot back up to a 10, but I was diligent with the stretching routine and the pain went back down to about a 3-4. On our second to last zoom meeting, Dr. Pavlich added some strength training which I feel is going to help stabilize and strengthen the muscle around the joint. Dr. Pavlich made sure I was good with what we were doing and what we had accomplished before stopping the zoom calls. My success and anyone else's success depend on me. Dr. Pavlich gave me the tools to help prolong the hip surgery I was contemplating. I am no longer taking Motrin for the pain and do a little extra stretching when the hip pain rises above a 5. Dr. Pavlich left the line open for me and said to reach out to him if things weren't staying on course. I feel good about the program and feel with the prescribed exercises and a little weight loss, surgery can be prolonged for quite a while...

I have a desk job that requires using a computer all day. Many years of doing this same job have really affected my neck, shoulders, and back. I have tried many, many different types of pain relief (chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture) these methods were a temporary fix. My wife decided to try physical therapy to help me improve my situation to which she located Airrosti and most especially Dr. Bodziony. WOW!!!....amazing results!!! I could not believe how it relieved my pain. Not only was the pain gone but my range of motion had been restored and Dr. Bodziony explained/showed me exercises to strengthen my muscles to keep the pain away. The exercises are so easy and it’s hard to believe that something so simple can make my life pain-free. Thanks Dr. Bodziony and staff...you are amazing!!!

Although we had difficulty with the app itself, Jason was so helpful and made sure that our appointment would happen one way or another! I had a lower back injury that caused many difficulties in my day-to-day life and the stretches and exercises I was given made a world of a difference!

I’ve lived with chronic lower back pain for years. After our initial consultation, Dr. Shellman assured me he could help, and he absolutely did. I’ve just finished my second session and I’m already sleeping better, able to exercise pain-free, and have tools to help me stretch, recover and heal!

I had this terrible pain in my upper back and neck that lasted for weeks. The pain was at its worst whenever I tried to sit or lay down, and it was driving me crazy. I'm a working college student so not being able to sleep or sit for long periods of time was an issue. However, after one visit with Dr. Niño, I was finally able to get some quality sleep, and after the second visit, I was able to sit for 30 minutes at a time without any pain. She pointed out the problem areas in my back, relieved my pain, and showed me the proper exercises to reinforce my back muscles and prevent future issues. Throughout the whole process, Dr. Niño was incredibly professional and understanding. After a couple of weeks of treatment, the pain was gone, and I was able to resume all of my everyday activities. I'm very grateful to Dr. Niño and the team at Airrosti for helping me get back to normal.

Upon experiencing a new injury, I scrambled to search for Dr. Savoy. It has been over 5 years since my last visit but I knew he would resolve my pain issues just like he had done previously. I’m happy to say that he didn’t skip a beat! While I don’t look forward to future injuries, at least I know that Dr. Savoy is there to take care of my needs so I can enjoy an active life. I highly recommend Dr. Savoy and his team!

After just a few weeks of prescribed exercises and a once-a-week check-in with Dr. Danisiewicz, I am practically pain-free. I was dealing with hip pain for over a year. The pain was uncomfortable but bearable. I just figured it was part of aging. Until I was invited to an Airrosti webinar where I learned that even though my pain wasn't debilitating it was worth some attention and could be helped. The at-home recovery kit and the virtual care are top-notch and an absolute receipt for success. Thank you!

I started this program because I have a bulging disc and it was causing quite a bit of pain, often. I was taking 3-6 Ibuprofens a day and wanted to not only reduce the daily pain in my neck but also reduce or eliminate taking ibuprofen. Over the period of time I participated in this program; starting 1/19 (it has now been just less than 2.5 months), I do 15-25 minutes of stretching a day and it has helped significantly. Dr. Danisiewicz was patient and walked me through the exercises I was directed to do and changed them up as needed, over the treatment period. Our goal was to decrease the pain by at least 50% and we have exceeded that goal! The neck not only is not as painful, but there are fewer days I feel the pain, and I have not taken any ibuprofen in several weeks! I am ecstatic with the results and plan to continue doing the exercises as needed to provide the relief I've obtained. Thank you Dr. Danisiewicz and Airrosti!

I have had the opportunity to be Dr. Wall's patient for several years now and it has been great! No matter what kind of injury I have, she knows what to do to get it feeling better, anything from a hurt shoulder to a hurt back. I have been to several clinics and by far Airrosti is the best when it comes to rehab and understanding the injury. I will continue to use Dr. Wall for many years and I will always remember an injury will get better with good care. Thanks

My daughter, Gracelyn, is a dancer. She experienced a back injury due to strenuous practice right before her competition season started. Unsure what to do, we contacted Dr. Ellsperman for treatment. To say we were pleased is an understatement! He took the time to understand her pain, educate us on the treatment process, and provide a home therapy plan. We are so thankful for the Airrosti staff and their help getting her back on the stage!

I injured my knee doing too many baby diaper "drop-a-knee" changes on the floor and the knee just never got better. My GP recommended Airrosti - which still makes me think of risotto - and I met Dr. McCaleb who discovered that my knee pain was not the only issue, I also had a misalignment. Years before I had injured my hip when having our first baby and although I saw a PT for a few sessions life got lived and the sessions alas did not. Dr. McCaleb uncovered that not fixing my hip over the years actually messed up all my muscles on that side. Good gracious she got in there and fixed it in three sessions! Plus she made me feel totally comfortable during each session and communicated clearly the expectations of her and for me. Thank you, Dr. Kristi!

Amy's bright spirit and infectious energy are comforting and inspiring. After a year of pain and limited movement in my hamstring, one visit was enough for Amy to pinpoint the problem and provide me with a range of exercises and stretches to strengthen and heal. Even though I am a one-time patient from out of town, Amy continued to check in with positive reinforcement for months after. I am fully healed now and cannot thank her enough. Amy is the absolute best at what she does, and truly special human.

I was having severe lower back pain and, over a few months, Dr. B helped me stretch and strengthen all of the necessary areas in order to make the pain go away.

I had been in horrendous pain in my back for 4 weeks when my pain doctor referred me to Dr. Pappas. Honestly, I was skeptical. My pain was 9 or 10/10 most days, even with opioids, steroids, and all sorts of other pain meds (which I stopped because they weren't helping). I could hardly work because I couldn't sit even for 10 minutes, and I couldn't focus because the pain was so intense. In 5 sessions, FIVE, my pain completely disappeared, to the point where I went to finally see my mom in Brazil, a trip that, thanks to many layovers and delays, took 25.5 hours (with a toddler in tow!), and I didn't even remember I had had pain before. The trip was 2 days after my last session. I honestly cannot recommend Dr. Pappas and Chris enough, this was absolutely unbelievable! I can now finally use my super cool folding kayak! Thank you so much!!

Amazing care and guidance from Dr. Natalie Bodziony, who provided explanations that I could understand about what was going on, and who taught me how to address my shoulder injury. Tremendous results, with benefits that began immediately and continued until I feel that I am well able to maintain my health, with what I've learned. The carefully tailored combination of exercises, from stretching to strength, really works.

I saw Dr. Levick and his assistant 1.5 years ago when my right arm was going numb. They did an amazing job of teaching me strengthening exercises and exercises to get rid of the pain and tingling. I just started seeing him again for a strained calf muscle and in one visit my range of motion increased 80% and the pain was minimized considerably. This team is amazing with care!

I called on Airrosti for some help with my IT band. 2020 brought us all new challenges and a lot of difficult change. Like many others, I ended up working at home which meant a lot more time sitting, standing with poor posture, etc. I started having some pain in my hip and legs and knew I needed some help. Thankfully, Dr. Christy Hicks came to my rescue! During my first online appointment, Dr. Hicks seamlessly diagnosed the issue I was having. The first stretch she taught me brought intense relief within the day. Thanks to Airrosti's smart video system, Dr. Hicks was able to actually see what physical symptoms I was displaying. And thanks to Dr. Hicks' incredible knowledge and uncanny way of teaching, I caught the scoop on the physical mechanics of my body -- plus how to make needed corrections. Within days, and despite a major weather disaster, I had received my care kit in the mail. Dr. Hicks sent videos for how to use the tools in the kit using the app (and via email), so I could ge...+ show moret started on alleviating my symptoms right away. Dr. Hicks' communication with me was top-notch: she checked in on my progress and kept me focused on the future -- and feeling better. I have already recommended Airrosti to others and specifically recommended Dr. Hicks by name. She was an incredible resource to me. Dr. Hicks has an incredible ability to bring her technical, medical knowledge and transform it into digestible, understandable tidbits for laypeople like me. Coupling that with her clear interest in her patient's success -- not to mention her good-natured humor and ability to meet me where I was at -- I had an incredible experience with Airrosti. I've continued the work she helped me start to stay pain-free, and I know I have ongoing access to Airrosti's useful app. I'm good to go, many thanks to Dr. Hicks at Airrosti!

The pain started in my right wrist about 25 years ago. It eventually spread to include my whole arm and shoulder. Next, it spread to my left arm and shoulder. Two times, I went to orthopedic specialists, had lots of tests, etc. Nothing came of it. I just found ways to avoid the pain. I should have come to Airrosti years ago! My left side is back to normal. My right side has made lots of great progress. I used to despair that I would never get back to normal. But now I think I can get there. This is the best decision I've made in a long time!

Meeting Dr. Amy was serendipity for me. Having several musculoskeletal issues and particularly right shoulder and left hip pain. I am an active person and I am a retired Physical Therapist. Dr. Amy finally gave me what I was missing in the help I had sought spanning 4 years. She sees the body as a whole and that pain is related to movement patterns. She has a 3D vision and has helped me in ways I did not think possible. I am back at the gym, gaining strength, if the pain returns I know just what to do to get back on the path because she gave me such great tools to use. In a word, Dr. Amy is awesome, so very nice, a truly great person, and professional.

I had a spinal fusion in 2001. For the next 10 years, I continued to struggle with horrible back pain and my doctors only wanted me to go through another surgery and I refused to try everything else possible. In 2011 I had reached a point where I couldn’t sit, I couldn’t stand, I couldn’t lay down, I was constantly in excruciating pain. I was finally ready to give up and have another surgery when a friend recommended Airrosti. I went through five sessions with Dr. Corey Fabling and I was fixed. I’m not saying the five sessions were pleasant experiences, because they were painful, but they worked. Since then I’ve lifted weights, climbed mountains, and trained in Mixed Martial Arts all without issue. I praise Airrosti to everyone that I speak to.

I was having extreme back pain. I was struggling to stand and walk at any distance. Lynsey gave me a variety of stretches and exercises that allowed me to stop taking pain medication daily and I can now walk and stand much easier. There were a couple of technical glitches with the app, but it was all done at my house conveniently. What a great experience and something that will now allow me to walk longer and begin exercising more. Lynsey customized the therapy for what worked for me and it was extremely effective.
