Back into the game

One day I was playing volleyball and we were warming up and I got hit HARD! I got hit so hard that my glasses broke and my nose was bleeding for an hour. I then got hit in the head two more times. After my third hit, my head hurt really bad and my neck was very sore. I went to the doctors the very next day and turned out that I had a concussion. Then afterwards I told the doctor that my neck hurt and he sent me to physical therapy.

When I got to physical therapy, I was a little scary at first because I didn’t know what to expect. When I went on the first day they did little tests to see what I needed to work on and what was wrong with my neck. After those tests, turns out that my neck has always been tilted to the left and getting hit made my neck shift even more to the left. My neck was very tight and had I knots everywhere in my neck and shoulders.

My second visit my therapist asked me if I wanted to try Astym and I was like why not? So I tried it and it helped tremendously. After the first day it was kind of sore but after that I could actually move my neck with little pain! After I used it once, it just got easier and didn’t hurt and it became relaxing. I went to therapy for 4 weeks 2 times a week and I used it 5 out of the 8 times. My last appointment, I had to take the same little test as my first appointment , they were 10 times better and I’m so glad that I used Astym. I’m back into the game I have grown to know since I was little and I am living a not pained life.

Astym Therapy Gave Me My Life Back

I had a fusion in 2013 and now have another herniated disc in my neck. I started seeing Kayla and Jamie at Momentum PT and they began Astym Therapy twice a week. It has helped me go from working and going straight to bed daily to living a full life again. It really helped with my movement and pain in general. I am now pregnant and still thriving thanks to Astym Therapy!

Astym Therapy is Great For Me

Astym therapy is great for me because it has been used on my shoulder and both knees. It helps with the scar tissue in healing and helps to get my muscles back in order. My Therapist Mona is a Great Person and helps me a lot. I can’t give her any gift, as it is not allowed but she is the #1 in my book.

Restored to Mobility

Because of a fall, I suffered severe whiplash. I could not move my neck at all without extreme pain nor could I lift anything without suffering. I was in much distress as I could not sleep nor raise myself to get out of bed.

I felt relief after my first Astym treatment and more and more as I continued with the Astym treatments. I so wanted to get back on my bicycle again, as this was completely impossible after my injury. I now have total recovery, as there is nothing I cannot do, even riding my bike.

Thank you, LORD, for giving the knowledge needed to develop this wonderful Astym treatment. I am so grateful for the kind therapist, Jolene Hancock who worked with me to gain my complete recovery. GOD BLESS YOU ALL
