Skepticism expressed toward Airrosti claims

Airrosti (Applied Integration for the Rapid Recovery of Soft Tissue Injuries) is described on its promoter’s Web site as an approach that determines the “root cause” of 26 types of painful conditions and provides “full resolution after an average of three appointments.” However, after reviewing the evidence upon which these claims are made, Harriet Hall, M.D., has concluded:

The information they sent me doesn’t justify the claims the company makes (that it is proven, through extensive third-party research and analysis, to be the most effective, efficient, and affordable option for resolving musculoskeletal conditions and that it has measurably prevented surgeries, hospitalization, MRIs, injections, and pharmaceuticals). If Airrosti can really provide less expensive and more effective treatment than other sources of care, I’m all for it; but they haven’t made their case. [Hall HA. Can Airrosti really resolve most chronic pain in just three visits? Science-Based Medicine Blog, Nov 4, 2014] 

The Airrosti Web site indicates that the treatment is administered by chiropractors at 151 locations nationwide.
