Getting Old? Astym therapy really worked on my Achilles tendonitis

As an active 47 year old, I was upset about a year ago when my ankles and Achilles tendons began to bother me. It got to the point that there were days I could barely walk. My softball and volleyball league participation was out of the question. I was even having trouble doing everyday farm work. After consulting with a podiatrist, finding out I had “deformed” heel bones, bone spurs, and severe Achilles tendonitis, he started me on physical therapy to try to avoid surgery. Astym therapy was started immediately. Though I have a few weeks left of treatment, I have gotten to the point where I only have slight pain in one heel. It’s getting better daily! The results have been amazing! I truly think this treatment will help me avoid surgery.
