Many sports injuries involve soft tissue such as muscles and tendons. Astym therapy is a treatment that helps regenerate soft tissue. It can reduce, or even eliminate, scar tissue that can restrict movement and cause pain. You will find that Astym treatments can work where other therapies fail.
The Goal of Astym
Astym therapies were designed to deal with the underlying cause of soft tissue concerns. The goal is to target and fix the cause, not just treat the symptoms. Here are some of the physical problems that Astym therapy can mitigate:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Wrist sprain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Shin splints
- Chronic hamstring pain
- Achilles tendinitis
And that is just a sampling of what can be treated. Physical therapist treatments can help the body to heal and return to normal. We use Astym therapy as one of the weapons in our arsenal to get you up and running. It is a non-invasive method that stimulates regeneration of muscles, tendons, and other soft tissue. It helps with tissue turnover and scar tissue resorption.
