Being a preschool teacher to 14 very active 3 and 4 year olds is a very demanding job. When I began to have difficulty climbing steps, kneeling to tie shoes, and trouble getting up and down off of the floor, I discovered that I had tendonitis in my left knee. My pain was severe and I suffered with it for 8 months! My physical therapist, Ashley, who was the most awesome person ever, tried some stretching and strengthening exercises to no avail. When she suggested Astym I was totally game because I was ready for relief. Ashley and Astym were miracles! Only after 4 Astym treatments I had my full range of motion back and my pain was gone. I feel totally blessed to have been an Astym patient. I do not think I would be where I am today without Ashley and Astym!
