Oh, what a relief it is! Chronic plantar fasciitis solved with Astym therapy!

Limping into the gym locker room, I spotted a flier advertising a new treatment available in town that would treat plantar fasciitis. After suffering from and attempting to treat this for well over a year, I was anxious to try something else. The medical doctor in town insisted on cortisone shots and was recommending surgery, and those were simply not an option. After several Astym treatments, the problem was solved on my right foot, but then my left foot developed plantar fasciitis. That foot is proving to be more problematic, but I was so relieved to have relief on my right foot, and I am certain my left foot will come around. I have also had Astym therapy to treat tennis elbow and back problems, and I am a believer in its ability to not only treat, but to solve problems without drugs and surgery.

Ankle Sprain and Achilles Injury: Astym therapy is taking my pain away

I had and accident at work where I got an ankle sprain and a open wound at my Achilles area. The wound healed but the pain from the scar was very intense and seemed not to go away.
After the first Astym session I felt clearly a difference. I just had my second Astym session and the pain is almost gone. I m very impressed, especially since I really didn’t believe in it.

Relief with Astym therapy after surgery

I had extensive shoulder surgery and suffered pain in the deltoid
Muscle. Ella suggested Astym therapy and I agreed. Astym therapy gave me the relief that I needed to do the required exercises to strengthen the shoulder. I would recommend this treatment to others. There is no discomfort just a form of a relaxing massage.

Body repair after surgery with Astym therapy

I had shoulder surgery and followed up with therapy. It is so nice to have both the doctor and therapy in the same building. Could not have ask for better care from both Dr Johnson and therapist Elzbieta Bule. Was dismissed from Dr Johnson 5/23/17 and ended my “relationship” with Ela same day. Lovely caring staff.

Astym Therapy Took Away the Pain in my Thumb and Forearm from Dequervain’s

I was a physical therapy student completing my last internship when I developed Dequervain’s synovitis in my right thumb. I would get catches and intense sharp pain in my forearm when I moved my hand a certain way. This was very debilitating considering we as PTs use our hands every day. After a few sessions of Astym therapy, my symptoms were gone!

Finally Some Relief! After surgery, Astym therapy relieved pain and increased my range of motion

I had a knee replacement in Jan 15 that did not go well causing constant pain and swelling requiring arthroscopy in Jun 15 to remove scar tissue. The joint was too loose and in Feb 17 I had to have a “Revision” or second replacement. Scar tissue has apparently been hindering my range of motion and causing increased pain. Swelling remained a concern to my physician and my Physical Therapists. An Astym-Certified Therapist has treated me 7 times with Astym therapy. I believe it has helped with resolving scar tissue, swelling, pain and range of motion. It has also improved the plantar fasciitis pain on my right heel. Last weekend I was finally able to do some gardening, planting flowers and attend a festival. I can walk much longer and no longer need the electric cart at the grocery store. I will recommend it to my neighbor who is having on going problems with his Achilles tendon.

Astym Therapy Gave Me Relief from Tendonitis Pain

I came into therapy with pain in my right shoulder . My doctor diagnosed me with bursitis and tendonitis. My therapist started me with the regular exercises and then she did Astym therapy also for added relief. The pain relief took a couple of treatments but it worked well. I would recommend Astym therapy to anyone that needs pain relief.

Astym therapy helped my Achilles and heel pain after surgery

On January 20th of this year I had surgery to repair a torn tendon, Achilles Tendon lengthening and Calcaneal Osteotomy. On top of this I have RA. I started therapy because I had major swelling and nerve sensitivity and pain. Laura my therapist recommended Astym therapy. We started with once a week and after the first week, started doing treatments twice a week. My nerve sensitivity and pain has gone down drastically as well as my swelling. I’m able to walk across different floor surfaces, put on socks, wear shoes and no nerve pain at night. I’m so pleased with the results I have gotten with Astym Therapy treatments and would recommend them to anyone having nerve & tissue issues.
