Astym System is a therapy approach that addresses problems such as scarring, fibrosis and degeneration that occur in soft tissues.
These problems may develop as the result of trauma, surgery or overuse.
Astym is effective for new injuries as well as chronic, nagging conditions. The system uses instruments along the surface of the skin to locate these problem areas and start the body’s healing process. As the body heals, exercise and activity help guide the healing which allows you to return to activities without pain and limitation. This often decreases the need for surgical intervention.
Astym treatments have helped patients with:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Lateral epicondylitis
- Medial epicondylitis
- Plantar fascitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Chronic ankle sprains
- Hamstring strains
- Hip pain/trochanteric bursitis
- IT Band Syndrome
