What is Astym® Treatment?

Astym® treatment is a therapy that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Astym®treatment is highly effective and even works when other approaches routinely fail. One of the main reasons Astym® treatment is so much more effective than other treatments is that it was scientifically developed to resolve the underlying cause of soft tissue problems, rather than just trying to temporarily relieve symptoms. It is one of the most researched and effective therapy treatments available. Astym®treatment is unmatched in its ability to resolve tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions. Doctors regularly prescribe Astym® treatment specifically for their patients, and elite athletes and knowledgeable patients seek out Astym® treatment for superior results. When your health and ability to stay active is at stake, only the best will do.

How does the Astym® Treatment Work?

Astym treatment is non-invasive, which means there are no injections or incisions.  Instruments are applied topically (on top of the skin) to locate dysfunctional (unhealthy) tissue, and to transfer mild to moderate pressure to the underlying soft tissue structures.   Astym treatment stimulates tissue turnover, scar tissue resorption, and the regeneration of tendons, muscles and other soft tissue structures.

Astym treatment  is typically provided twice weekly for four to five weeks (about 9 total treatment sessions) and is done in conjunction with eccentric loading, stretching, and functional exercises. Unlike other treatments, Astym encourages patients to active, workers to stay on the job, and athletes to stay in their sport during treatment. The Astym process actually makes the tissues of the body stronger, and allows a patient’s body to become adapted to greater stress without injury.  Patients are very satisfied  and enthused with the results they see from Astym.

Testimonials

Thanks to Astym therapy, I am Doing Better in my Knee Surgery Recovery

I had my left knee replaced. I went into physical therapy the next week. For six weeks my therapy was at an impasse. I just couldn’t get much extension in my knee. My therapist suggested to try Astym therapy and we did. the results started to change the same day. It was unbelievable. I started to get more mobility in my knee. After six more weeks I got to around 103 degrees of bend in my knee thanks to Astym therapy and my therapist. It did really helped.

Astym therapy helped my Achilles, and I avoided surgery

I am on my second round of Astym therapy. Back in July 2015 I had my first round. I had a bad Achilles tendon. My calf and foot were very tight and painful. I was unable to walk without limping. Trying to avoid surgery we did Astym therapy. It made my pain tolerable so I could continue working until November.

It is now January and I am on my second session of Astym therapy. My recovery has been wonderful thanks to Andrea and Astym therapy. A few more weeks and back to work.

I would recommend Astym therapy  to anyone. What do you have to loose? PAIN
