Astym therapy gave a quick fix to an ankle injury

Epic Fall: Astym therapy gives me a quick fix to torn ligament in ankle

For the past 3 years now, I have been participating in swimming. I wake up every morning and I am in the pool by 6 a.m. I attend dryland, which is an on land training program, every Tuesday and Thursday. One day, while practicing, we were doing stair laps. While running down the stairs, my ankle gave out and I rolled it. The next day, I went to the doctor to find out I partially tore a ligament in my ankle and I would need physical therapy. About 3 weeks into physical therapy, my therapist started using Astym therapy on me. Astym therapy has helped my ankle heal very quickly. It has reduced my pain, and it has reduced the scar tissue and helped the healing process. Because of Astym therapy, I can now go to swim practice with little to no pain. I can go to work as a lifeguard and walk around the pool deck bare footed with no pain. Thanks to Astym therapy my healing process has gone much quicker than expected, and my ankle is stronger than ever before.
