Astym Stories

My success story – Astym therapy relieved my neck and shoulder pain

My left shoulder/neck had been hurting since January 2017 after carrying around a backpack vacuum around for six months. I had a myleogram done and that didn’t find anything wrong with me so then I had a steroid injection which didn’t help the pain. I had a MRI of my neck and then another of my shoulder and they both came out fine so I was referred to a pain management doctor who suggested I go to physical therapy and have astym therapy done. After 9 visits. Twice a week for four weeks I can say that I have very little pain.

Astym therapy took away my pain after falling

I have an artificial hip and when I fall on it I get a severe muscle bruise and I cannot walk.  Astym therapy eases the pain and relaxes the muscle to a point where I can put pressure on my leg and use my walker and get on my feet and walk.

Astym Therapy Helped After Shoulder Replacement

When I started therapy after surgery I could barely move my shoulder. But after 5 to 6 sessions of Astym therapy I was almost reaching my goals that were set by my Dr. I graduated on 8-17-17, without Astym therapy I think I would still be in therapy another 3 to 4 weeks.

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!
