What is Astym® Soft Tissue Therapy?
Astym® is a highly effective and safe soft tissue therapy. This treatment removes unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain and movement restrictions, and helps regenerate healthy, soft tissues in muscles and tendons. Most treatments only temporarily relieve symptoms. This type of therapy is more effective than others because it is scientifically developed to resolve the underlying cause of soft tissue complications.
Chronic soft tissue problems, including muscles, tendons, and ligaments, are generally due to scarring or degeneration. Injury, surgery, sprains, strains, and intense use of soft tissues can cause scarring. Scarring can happen both on top of the skin and inside the body around joints. Degeneration can be caused by age, overuse, improper movement, and disease. Tissues that are degenerated are weak and prone to injury. Scarring and degeneration are both common and can cause tremendous pain and limitations in movement.
Luckily, Astym® therapy works to regenerate tissues and reduce internal scar tissue. Because this treatment focuses on eliminating the cause of pain, patients can expect their symptoms to resolve and not cause them future discomfort. Astym® treatment can help with the following conditions:
· Hamstring Sprain
· Tendinitis of Rotator Cuff
· Lateral Epicondylitis, or Tennis Elbow
· Ankle Sprain
· Wrist Sprain
· Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
· Virtually any Acute or Chronic Soft Tissue Dysfunction
Is Astym® Safe?
Astym® treatment does not damage healthy tissues, rather it targets and regenerates unhealthy tissues. Because it was scientifically developed, has a sound research base, and has standardized protocols, Astym® is extremely safe to resolve tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions. Athletes, medical professionals, and knowledgeable patients seek out Astym® treatment because it is the best soft tissue treatment currently available.
