Astym Therapy Got Me Back To Ultrarunning

Astym Therapy Got Me Back To Ultrarunning

Repetitive abuse and neglect had taken its toll on my left calf. As an ultra runner, I push the envelope of extremes. I had to take a break from running. When I met Sae, my PT, and he explained the Astym procedure, I was hopeful it would provide relief and get me back to running.

I looked up the literature online and it had evidence to back it up. Following treatment, I was able to resume long-distance running without the calf pain I had previously struggled with.
