Post ACL surgery

I tore my ACL while playing soccer in college. This injury is hard and long but at my physical therapy place back home they started doing this treatment on me and it helped so much. This helped get back my movement and extension and help me from being so tight. I’m glad my PT place offered this to make my recovery faster.

Horsing Around – Astym therapy helped after injury

On Sept 28th I was headed to work and got bucked off my horse. I ended up breaking my fibula and tearing every ligament in my knee. I went in for urgent and went for PT. I have been having my treatments with Laura for a while now and can bend my knee to 130 degrees now. I go in Jan 27 to have my ACL and PCL grafted in and then begin therapy again! I am ahead of the schedule thanks to Laura and her Astym treatments!

Plantar Fasciitis: Be Gone – Astym therapy


I received Astym therapy during my rehab for my ACL. I found it beneficial for not only my knee, but for my plantar fasciitis as well. My feet have been a constant annoyance for about a year now and I tried several arch supports, but found no relief. Finally the PTA recommended I try Astym therapy and I felt results soon after. It seemed as if several pounds had been lifted off my feet and the constant ache was no longer an issue. My feet no longer are getting in the way of my daily activities. I highly recommend Astym therapy.
