Tag Archives: Achilles Tendon treatment

Astym therapy helped my Achilles, and I avoided surgery

I am on my second round of Astym therapy. Back in July 2015 I had my first round. I had a bad Achilles tendon. My calf and foot were very tight and painful. I was unable to walk without limping. Trying to avoid surgery we did Astym therapy. It made my pain tolerable so I could continue working until November.

It is now January and I am on my second session of Astym therapy. My recovery has been wonderful thanks to Andrea and Astym therapy. A few more weeks and back to work.

I would recommend Astym therapy  to anyone. What do you have to loose? PAIN

Astym therapy benefits were almost immediate

I just wanted to tell others about the Astym treatment and how it helped me during my recovery and rehab for my Achilles tendon. The treatment helped ease the pain and swelling of the scar tissue at the back of my heel and calf muscle. It was not a comfortable process the first time but the benefits were almost immediate and the following treatments were progressively easier. The benefits are reduced pain and swelling as well as helping out with the flexibility. Definitely worth the time and helped me out a lot.
