ASTYM Regenerative Medicine Certified Treatment
What is ASTYM?
Astym 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 treatment stimulates the body to regenerate soft tissues, decreases pain, and improves your movement. Astym is effective for new injuries as well as chronic, nagging conditions.
What can you expect during a treatment session?
A certified clinician will perform a complete evaluation to determine the appropriateness of Astym.
As the instruments pass over problem areas, you will feel “roughness” and the body will be stimulated to begin healing.
A special program of stretches and exercises will be prescribed to make sure your body heals in a way that will allow you to do what you want without pain.
You will receive Astym treatment 1-2 times per week. Your pain will decrease, and movement will become easier.
Patients often comment that their tissues feel more “alive” and rejuvenated.
