Sprains and Strains

One word ‘Magical’

I was suffering from a very severe pain in back of my thigh. It was a muscle pull/tear.
I had to go to ER as the pain was very severe. The earliest doctor follow-up appointment I could get was three weeks later. I was looking for some kind of relief in the meantime.
Luckily I came across Ela who introduced me to Astym approach and how it can help me.
In the first treatment I felt so much better. Ela was nice enough to keep a regular check on me between treatments. Now it is time to see my doctor and I’m debating if I should even go anymore.  🙂

Before Astym Therapy, My Life Revolved Around Pain

I had to plan my entire day with rest breaks after everything I did. I felt like I spent more time resting than I did getting anything done. It was making me depressed because I have 4 very active boys who always want me to join in the fun!

Since discovering astym therapy I am able to attend all my kids baseball games and soccer games, cheer in the stands and instead of laying down afterwords, we go for ice cream!

I was skeptical at first because I have tried many other forms of treatment but now I am grateful for not giving up and finding astym therapy.

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.

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.

My calves were tightening after every run, but Astym therapy fixed it!!

I am a runner here in Jacksonville Florida . I have had issues with my calves tightening up after every run. After four sessions of astym therapy at the riverside clinic I ran 5 miles pain free for the first time in months! I love it!

Astym therapy helped my forearm tightness and golfers elbow

I received Astym therapy for my forearm tightness and golfers elbow. I no longer having aching in my forearms after two treatments of Astym therapy. I also had a flair up for golfers elbow and received Astym therapy for that and it was gone in two days. I would definitely recommend this treatment to people around me.

Astym therapy: Getting Back To My A Game

I suffered a season ending injury to my knee while playing in a basketball game. I had ACL surgery back in April of 2015 and needed PT to get me back to playing the game I love!

The road to recovery and getting back on the court was a long nine months. TOPS Physical Therapy gave me some of the best care that I have ever experienced as an athlete. Astym therapy was something that they used on me to help aid my recovery process and keep me tuned up!

Astym therapy helped with scar tissue, tightness, increased blood flow, and really getting in deep to address those adhesions. Astym therapy also helped with an old ankle injury I suffered 10 years ago, that I thought was helpless! I love Astym therapy and TOPS Physical Therapy!

No more shin splints thanks to Astym therapy and TOPS

TOPS Physical Therapy is the best! I had terrible shin splints from running and I went to TOPS and got the treatment that was just right for my condition. I’ve been to physical therapy at other clinics and did not experience the same level of care. At TOPS they used hands-on treatment that addressed my leg pain and tightness. They also used Astym therapy which was uncomfortable at the beginning but brought much relief and was totally worth the temporary discomfort. Thanks TOPS!

Chronic Low Back Pain Gone Thanks to Astym Therapy

I have suffered from dysfunctional SI joints and related and associated pain for close to the last 8 years. I started PT at Momentum about halfway through this current pregnancy, which had really aggravated the SI pain and dysfunction. After only one Astym treatment, I was feeling infinitely better than just the PT exercises alone had been making me feel. I have since undergone several more Astym treatments and each time, I notice a more marked improvement in the way I feel and the way I am able to move to chase after my 2 year old. After the first treatment, I was amazed at how much better I was feeling and after each subsequent treatment, I am continually amazed! My range of motion is so much better, I am sleeping better at night, and I have fewer occurrences of stuck/rotated SI joints. I am a firm believer in Astym treatment and will forever sing its praises!

5 weeks until Ironman! Astym therapy fixed my Achilles strain.

I had just 5 weeks until my Ironman race, when I strained my Achilles to the point that I could not run at all without severe pain. A good friend recommended Athletico and Astym treatment. I completed 4 weeks of physical therapy with Astym treatments 2-3 times a week. I completed my Ironman with zero pain in my Achilles and would highly recommend the Astym treatment.
