Astym therapy after surgery improved movement, relieved pain

This is my second round of physical therapy for the surgery that was performed on my right big toe on December 26, 2014. The range of motion was very limited and painful in my normal stride. After consulting with a different podiatrist and my physical therapist, I agreed to 3 more months of physical therapy including Astym therapy. The Astym therapy that I received on my entire lower leg, ankle and foot improved my function, range and pain level 80%!! At first the treatment would last the rest of the day. As the therapist continued the time increased to two days and a whole weekend. It’s not 100% but my range has improved from 35 degrees extension to 47! I looked forward to the treatment because I knew it was making so much positive difference.
