When I first started doing physical therapy I had trouble lifting grocery bags, reaching behind me, lifting various objects and sleeping without pain. Since coming to physical therapy and doing Astym therapy my symptoms have improved so much. My lifting is much, much better and I’m sleeping through the night without pain. Thank you Amy and Andrea.

My pain began about 3 months prior to receiving the Astym treatment. I had limited mobility in my right elbow and sharp pains as well. After a few months I sought treatment from a chiropractor. Unfortunately this did not relieve my pain. My chiropractor referred me to an orthopedic surgeon, and this is where I was diagnosed with tennis elbow. I received a cortisone shot and began occupational therapy. During therapy I was given the Astym therapy. It was painful at times but my mobility began to increase, and I was able to use my right arm again. I am grateful for this typ of therapy because I am right handed and use my arms so much throughout the day when I teach, do household chores and many other activities. With this therapy I was able to go back to my normal life. Thank you so much!!!

More support for Astym therapy has just been published. A large, randomized clinical trial showing Astym therapy to be highly effective for tennis elbow, and also demonstrating Astym therapy’s impressive efficacy on recalcitrant tennis elbow, has just been published in a peer-reviewed journal.
This large scale clinical trial demonstrating the effectiveness and safety of Astym therapy gives even more reason for referral sources and patients to seek out certified Astym providers. Large controlled clinical trials are very important contributions to the literature, and we are pleased that Astym therapy has joined the rare, elite rank of treatments that have quality clinical trials supporting effectiveness and safety.

Astym therapy is one of the most researched and effective interventions available – it is unmatched in its ability to resolve a wide range of soft tissue dysfunctions.
I was suffering from tennis elbow. It was limiting my day to day activities as well as decreasing my strength in my grip. This went on for about 4 months before seeking help from my physical therapist Julian Manrique at Focus Physical Therapy in Rancho Santa Margarita California. He recommended Astym treatment. I was so happy that within the first 3 treatments I began to feel pain free and started getting the strength back in my arm and hand.
I was able to lift heavy objects and go back to playing recreational tennis. I can’t begin to express how much happier I am day to day being pain free. I am a true believer in Astym treatment and have recommended it to family and friends.
