Chronic Sciatica – finally got relief with Astym therapy; I am so grateful!

I am 42 years old and have been suffering from Sciatica for 11 years. I had back surgery 11 years ago and have never been the same. I got another bout of sciatica about 3 months ago, was having issues walking, driving, working and taking care of my family. I have been going to physical therapy for 8 weeks with no luck and no relief, had an MRI done and nothing abnormal was reported. As a last resort after nothing was working they tried Astym therapy after the first treatment my lower leg stopped hurting was instant relief. I have no had 3 treatments and now i am able to walk up and down stairs with no pain and drive, sleep and play with my children. I am just amazed and so grateful that there is this therapy available to me it has been a life saver.

Chronic Low Back Pain Gone Thanks to Astym Therapy

I have suffered from dysfunctional SI joints and related and associated pain for close to the last 8 years. I started PT at Momentum about halfway through this current pregnancy, which had really aggravated the SI pain and dysfunction. After only one Astym treatment, I was feeling infinitely better than just the PT exercises alone had been making me feel. I have since undergone several more Astym treatments and each time, I notice a more marked improvement in the way I feel and the way I am able to move to chase after my 2 year old. After the first treatment, I was amazed at how much better I was feeling and after each subsequent treatment, I am continually amazed! My range of motion is so much better, I am sleeping better at night, and I have fewer occurrences of stuck/rotated SI joints. I am a firm believer in Astym treatment and will forever sing its praises!

Chronic shoulder pain finally gets relief with Astym therapy

I had always suffered from chronic pain in my shoulders, neck and traps since the beginning of high school. I had gone to the doctor and people always told me it was just due to stress. It wasn’t until our family car got T-boned and I ended up requiring physical therapy that I realized there was actually something I could do to help these muscle pains. After three months of therapy with Astym treatment my general pain that had always stayed at an 8 on a 10 point scale lowered to a three at best. My quality of life has improved so much since starting therapy.

Astym therapy made a huge difference in my recovery from shoulder surgery

I had surgery on my shoulder in October of 2016 due to tearing my labrum working out. The procedure included cutting and reattaching my bicep tendon and cleaning up my labrum. During my recovery as i began using my arm more I kept having sharp pains in my shoulder. After I informed my Physical Therapist about these pains she began performing Astym therapy on my shoulder. Within two weeks I could tell a huge difference.

Astym therapy was a big help with my Frozen Shoulder

I stepped on a very old rusty nail on Grand Turk in August. Upon returning I visited the local urgent care facility for a tetanus shot. I am not big on immunizations but being I had been in a foreign country I felt it necessary. I feel like I did all of my normal activities even though I experienced prolonged shoulder pain for approx. 6 weeks until it got to where I limited mobility of my shoulder joint. I visited CO and was diagnosed with frozen shoulder. I worked with Ella in PT for approx. 2 months . I really liked the Astym therapy vs the other manipulation procedures. I am not quite back to where I need to be but have been released to manage the exercise and wear a brace at home. Thanks Ella!!!

Astym therapy made a huge difference my shoulder pain

After my double mastectomy I had frozen shoulder and had to have surgery. After surgery I had several weeks of therapy and was still in a lot of pain. Ela, my physical therapist, started astym therapy on my shoulder. After 4 treatments I have went from being in severe pain to being released with very little pain. What a huge difference!

Nothing Short of A Miracle: Astym therapy helped my foot pain

Difficulty and pain with ambulation had been becoming worse for me over a period of a few years, and was limiting normal daily activities. It was determined that this difficulty stemmed, in great part, from plantar fasciitis, peroneal tendonitis, over-pronation, and strained Achilles tendon in the right foot/ankle. Stretching exercises, elastic support socks, and use of an arch support did not address the issue long-term.

Following my request for a physical therapy consult for more specific exercises, the therapist evaluation covered multiple exercises for me to perform. The evaluation also included a discussion about Astym therapy. I have been so very thankful and grateful ever since! It was amazing to me that after just one Astym treatment I noted some improvement with decreased pain. Subsequent treatment resulted in not only further pain control, but also in increased functionality of my foot. My over-pronation was completely gone, my arch was improved to normal, the Achilles was no longer tight… I was thrilled!

Maintaining functionality and independence as much as possible is so very important to me, and with this exposure to Astym therapy, I have that.

An Amazing Outcome – Astym therapy cured my chronic foot pain

I broke the fifth metatarsal in my right foot, 15 years ago while working at my job. The environment required that we wear steel toe boots. I am 5’2 and was assisting a co-worker put merchandise in the overhead compartments. I was told that the movements I performed to hand boxes up with my height, caused the bone to break.
After the cast was removed, I continued to have multiple problems.
I was unable to drive, work, dance, or walk without intense pain. All the little things in life became unbearable.
I tried regular physical therapy but here was little or no change with my foot. My orthopedic doctor gave up on me and said there was nothing else he could do or recommend.
I am a person who does not take narcotics well, they make me sleep, masking the problem and not a solution.
In August, a friend asked if the doctor ever recommended ASTYM for therapy. I had never heard of the procedure and immediately looked it up.
I read everything I could get my hand on and decided to give it a try.
I called Heartland Rehab and was scheduled for an appointment the very next week. Nicole was amazing.
I arrived for the appointment and met Meryl Willingmyre and my life will never be the same.
She was always on time, encouraging, and uplifting. She explained the process and we began.
The first week was the greatest challenge but I knew this would be the answer I was looking for.
If we had know how dramatic the end results would have been, we both agreed it should have been recorded.
After suffering for 15years with pain that never stopped – this treatment was a miracle.
Thank you Meryl!
