Astym therapy relieved my plantar fasciitis, and now I am “moving and a grooving”

The problem I had was planter fasciitis. It sure made it hard to get up in the mornings and just walking in general. I wasn’t able to do my walk runs without any pain. For about a year. I kept thinking it would get better or that it was my shoes. I did try inserts in my shoes and changing my shoes after activities. I think it was about the third treatment and by doing all the exercises my PT doctor had me do it was really awesome to walk and not feel pain. Plus I didn’t look like I was a hundred years old walking around. I can go back now to my normal routine. I can go hiking again with no pain. Whoo Hoo! I would recommend this treatment to everyone that is suffering from this problem. The tools the doctor uses look a little weird but when he explains them to you then you understand why and how they are used. I also would recommend my PT doctor to anyone. The clinic I go to is called Progress In Motion in a White House Tennessee. This treatment really works and I am truly thankful I received it.

Chronic Plantar Fasciitis – nothing would work until I found Astym therapy

 I suffered with plantar fasciitis pain daily for 11 1/2 years.  At times it was extremely painful.  In the beginning, I had a baby learning to crawl, and I was crawling right along with her.  I bought a chair to sit on in the shower.  Over the years, I purchased dozens of orthotics (some custom), night boots, received physical therapy, ultrasound, e-stim, and other various treatments and medications.  I found some orthotics that helped but I still had pain every day.  Until my podiatrist referred me to the PT who used Astym therapy.  I have been nearly pain-free for over a year!  I sincerely never thought I would never be rid of plantar fasciitis.  I can’t tell you how grateful I am.

Astym therapy made my arm 100% better – couldn’t believe the difference

From the very first time Astym therapy was done on my arm I felt 100% better!! I had more range of motion and better movement. This therapy should be used sooner. What a difference in my recovery!!

Achilles Tendonitis: painful but Astym therapy worked

I had Astym therapy done on both legs for Achilles tendonitis. I can deal with a lot of pain but enduring this treatment was a struggle for me. I had to grit my teeth to keep from crying out. I’m glad I didn’t stop the therapist. By the next day, I noticed a major improvement! That really amazed me! I had minimal bruising.

Ankle Injury Recovery with Astym therapy

Before going to Apex, I had struggled with chronic pain in my ankle for over 4 years.  Simple things such as walking on uneven surfaces, jumping, and running caused sharp pain.  By going to physical therapy at Apex, I have been able to strengthen the tendons in my ankle, along with increase the range of motion. I am now able to do all three of the things listed above completely pain-free.  A huge thank you to Apex Physical Therapy Concepts and Rehab for helping me get back on my feet.

I tried everything, and finally found Astym therapy to help my heel pain

I had tried supplements, reflexology, inserts in shoes just to name a few. I had gotten somewhat better with the combination of these things but my heel still hurt. I was referred by a friend who had done astym therapy with good results.

I had 8 treatments, I felt with each one my pain level was down and I could be on my feet longer during the day without thinking about my heel. I still feel some discomfort but if I do my stretches I am better.

I would recommend this treatment.

Astym therapy finally helped my back pain when nothing else would work!

I have had back pain for several years, ever since I was a teenager. A year ago, the pain became unbearable and limited my day to day activities severely. I could barely stand or sit and couldn’t sleep at night. I sought help and was quickly diagnosed with sacroiliitis. I went through several treatments including steroid packs, corticosteroid injections, prolotherapy, braces, and physical therapy, but nothing was working. My doctor then suggested I go through a second round of physical therapy with a different therapist. In my initial examination, further ailments were discovered: IT band inflammation, hip flexor inflammation and fibrosis throughout my legs and back. Apex Physical Therapy nominated me as a candidate for Astym therapy, which I graciously accepted. After 3 months of therapy, I am happy to say my pain is nearly gone and I am able to live life again. Previous ailments such as pelvic floor dysfunction have also disappeared. I feel so much stronger and happier. I am able to enjoy life again. Thank you Astym therapy!

ASTYM THERAPY WORKS! It helped my chronic shoulder pain

I’m 81 years old. have had chronic shoulder pain for two years. Tried regular PT for two months which helped somewhat, but pain still persisted. Affected my conducting of a 55 piece concert band on Sanibel Island and my golf swing! Apex called me to try Astym therapy as they had just been certified to use it. Just finished 8 sessions and can honestly say range of motion is better, strength is better, and pain is much less although not completely gone. Would recommend Astym therapy to anyone as a non-invasive procedure to try.

Astym therapy key for marathon training

Astym therapy has been a key factor in my recovery for high volume marathon training. Each session seems to open up more levels of flexibility; and a quicker recharge between runs. Mona put so much of her own passion for therapy into each treatment- making each appointment something very special. What a relief!
