Astym Therapy Took Away the Pain in my Thumb and Forearm from Dequervain’s

I was a physical therapy student completing my last internship when I developed Dequervain’s synovitis in my right thumb. I would get catches and intense sharp pain in my forearm when I moved my hand a certain way. This was very debilitating considering we as PTs use our hands every day. After a few sessions of Astym therapy, my symptoms were gone!

De Quervains Syndrome – Astym therapy to the rescue

I started having a lot of pain in my R wrist and thumb after giving birth to my daughter making it painful for me to pick her up. My thumb tendons started “popping and catching” making my wrist stick in different positions. I had approx. 4 Astym therapy sessions and the pain and popping went away! I was able to pick up my infant daughter again without pain!
