20 Sep Ankle Pain Relief From Astym Therapy
I had very complicated ankle surgery on May 10, 2018, and for the next four months dealt with swelling on each side, right under the ankle bones and super tender nerves that made me feel like anything that touched my foot was sandpaper. By the end of my work day, my ankles looked like really full chipmunk cheeks. It was so painful that walking was torture and I would spend my evenings icing and massaging to try and get the blood to flow from my foot so at bed time I wouldn’t have to spend hours trying to get comfortable. It seriously felt like I had restless leg syndrome. My doctor had me go to a new physical therapy source that specializes in Astym. The very first day I noticed a difference. When I got off work that night, I did NOT have Chipmunk cheeks… for the first time! No pressure and no pain! Even the tingling from the nerves healing on the top of my foot has lessened at least 80%. I’ve had two treatments now and when I go to bed I don’t spend an hour or more moving around and turning from side to side looking for that position that I don’t feel like the sheet’s are sandpaper on my foot. I’m so grateful!
