ASTYM Therapy Can Help When Other Treatments Fail

ASTYM Therapy Can Help When Other Treatments Fail

Soft tissue injuries involve tendons and muscles. These types of injuries are often seen in sports and require specific treatment to aid in the healing. One of those treatments is ASTYM therapy. This therapy method helps:

  • Regenerate soft tissue
  • Reduce, or eliminate, scar tissue
  • Help with pain
  • Enhance healing
  • When other treatments fail

Conditions ASTYM Can Help

ASTYM therapy deals with the underlying cause of soft tissue concerns. Treating the symptoms that come with soft tissue injuries is not enough. The root cause must be addressed.  Astym therapy can mitigate:

  • Trigger Points / Knots
  • Shin Splints
  • Hamstring Strains
  • Bursitis
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Post Surgical Scars

ASTYM stands for Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization and is a form of deep tissue massage. This PT treatment involves specially designed instruments that allows us to treat the injury. This non-invasive method stimulates the regeneration of tendons, muscles, tissue turnover, and scar tissue resorption.
