Ankle Injury Recovery with Astym therapy

Before going to Apex, I had struggled with chronic pain in my ankle for over 4 years.  Simple things such as walking on uneven surfaces, jumping, and running caused sharp pain.  By going to physical therapy at Apex, I have been able to strengthen the tendons in my ankle, along with increase the range of motion. I am now able to do all three of the things listed above completely pain-free.  A huge thank you to Apex Physical Therapy Concepts and Rehab for helping me get back on my feet.

Swinging For Success: Astym therapy improves golf swing

My name is Emma de Groot, and I am a professional golfer on the LPGA and LPGA Symetra Tour. I have suffered from chronic back pain since an almost career ending car accident in 2011. Since I began working with Back2Normal, my function and movement has continually improved, however there has always been some restriction in my rotation. After three months playing non stop golf, and countless travel hours in Australia at the beginning of the year, I came back to Florida with extreme restriction in movement. Since being away, Lisa had become certified in the Astym method and got to work on me straight away. Within two treatments, I had my full range of motion back in my thoracic spine, as well as my hips and ankles, no pain whatsoever, and a far improved golf swing.
