At the age of 16 I was diagnosed with Degenerative Disc Disease. I have seen countless doctors since that original diagnosis and have had other diagnoses added including, Stills arthritis and fibromyalgia. I had one doctor go as far as tell me I would be in a wheelchair by the time I was 27. I am now 33 and very active, but have had two back surgeries including a fusion of my lower lumbar. I have fought this crazy disease with all that I have for years: working out regularly, staying active, and unfortunately with the aid of way too many medications, including countless rounds of steroids and pain pills.
About 5 months ago I herniated a disc in my uppers spine, and for the first time I have had to face a cervical spine issue. After two rounds of steroids and much doubt on the part of my physicians, I started thinking I had finally lost my fight against this disease that has tried to take the fun out of living for so long! A week ago I started seeing Dr. Nick Askey and he literally turned my life around. After the first treatment I could turn my neck to "normal" expectations. By the second treatment I believed in this process but still thought I would need many more treatments to meet my full potential. To my surprise I had my third treatment today and I am happy to report that after living with 5 months of excruciating pain I am pain free and without the use of harmful medications! We are now going to focus on my lower spin, an area that has caused me physical limitations for more than half my life. I have no doubt that I will soon be 100% pain free for the first time in 17 years! If you are experiencing any physical pain I highly recommend that you try your local Airrosti and if you're near Dr. Nick...he is the best!
Thank you Dr. Nick for your dedication to helping others!
Warning: Do not go with the image of a nice massage in mind. The treatments are very direct and can be uncomfortable at times, but the results are worth your weight in gold!
I've had irritating pain and tugging in my knees when I ran for the last year and a half. Here recently it had gotten bad enough where I couldn't even complete a mile without stopping. My good friend pointed me to Airrosti and Dr. Nick Askey, and I'm so glad she did!! After two visits I haven't had ANY knee pain whatsoever and am back to enjoying running.... well, completing runs anyway. I'm definitely sold on Airrosti and would highly recommend it to anyone!
Wow. Lots of increase in my range of motion after the first treatment. I am a safer driver now because it is easier and quicker for me to look over my shoulders into my 'blind spots' when driving! That was a big surprise since I am dealing with the effects of a thirty year old injury! I am certainly sold on Airrosti. They live up to the name Rapid Recovery Treatment!
I have been in the Martial Arts for 37 years and I went through shoulder surgery for an impingement in January of 2010. Subsequent physical therapy for 5 months. Results didn't produce relief from from the impingement. After one Airrosti treatment I was able to do push ups again, which I hadn't been able to do since before the surgery. I also felt considerable amount of relief from aching in my arm and shoulder. After my second treatment the impingement seems to be gone. I am very pleased by the treatment and the professionalism of Dr. Nick.

I have had lower back and cervical issues for years. I have had at least 3 doctors and countless procedures and physical therapy, chiropractic, injections, and medications (some really not good for you). I was at my wits end and had decided that I was just going to have to suffer for the rest of my life. I felt that there was something wrong with me, since all these different specialist could not fix the problem, and some made me feel that way. I had one tell me I was "drug seeking" even though I had never ask him for any pain medication, only relief with his procedures. This went on my record, and really hurt my feelings. I decided that I wouldn't go to any more doctors for this pain, just grin and bear it.
I started going back to Dr. Carney a few months back, and that was the best decision I have made. She asked me if I had ever heard of the Airrosti Treatment, I said no, but figured it was just one more thing that would take my money and not work. She has never led me wrong nor lied to me, and her attitude was contagious.
Well I went, skeptical and yet part of me hopeful. He started on my ankles which had been injured and seemed to make all the rest of my injuries hurt worse. I laid down on the table face first and then he started the treatment. I had never felt such burning and stabbing when he hit a bad area. But I laughed instead of screamed through it and once it was over, I felt different. It was like nothing I had ever experienced before. I then went to his assistant and she put me to work on exercises for the ankles and taped me up in those areas. I actually felt better walking out of there and couldn't wait for the next appointment.
After 3 treatments, my ankles no longer hurt and I had my balance for the first time in a long time. This also helped the sciatica I was having in my leg. I let him work on my other areas and between him and Kim and the exercises I feel like a new person. Who knew that a thumb was such a great healer LOL. I love Dr. Askey, he is friendly and he smiles while he is doing the work. It is so worth it to have a few moments of discomfort than a lifetime of pain. I love him, Kim and everyone on staff there. They are cheering for you, and he does not keep bringing you back in. It is a short term treatment that works. I know I am rambling, but go to him, try it, you have nothing to lose but maybe the pain that has made your life difficult. I had my treatments over a month ago, and they are still working. I love you Dr. Askey and my back and ankles love you even more. Thanks for all your hard work!!!!
I am grateful.
Once again Dr. Nick came through to help this old body from all the injuries accumulated through decades of body injuries. This injury however, was not from the Martial Arts. I had nerve damage from many years of untreated spinal stenosis. Causing what is commonly called "drop foot". Well this was experimental treatment for Dr. Nick but he was willing to take it on. To both our surprise we had very favorable results. I am so happy to have found this type of therapy and will share the results with whoever will listen. Once again great job Dr. Nick.
