Pain In My Hip is Now Gone Thanks to Astym Therapy

TOPS Physical Therapy is the best clinic I have gone to! In 2015 I suffered a season ending hip injury. The TOPS team went above and beyond to help me through one of the most challenging experiences I faced as an athlete. They helped me though every step of the way (going to office visits, and etc). By far the best care I have ever experienced. I have played basketball for over 15 years (from leagues, travel ball, high school and at the collegiate level), throughout those years I have suffered many bumps and bruises along the way. With that being said, I have gone to a lot of clinics and no place gave me the type of care TOPS did!
While in their care, they had me on a great exercise program that really helped me get my strength back. Another thing they did was use Astym therapy, which if you asked me while they were doing it I would say it is not a fun time. But, the use of Astym therapy helped aid my recovery process and addressed dysfunctional tissue around my scars, relieving tightness.   Astym therapy also helped with myositis osscificanas (I had to look that up)! From allergy shots, I developed two small round hard bumps in my butt. Astym therapy was able to fix that and get me back to normal. I love Astym therapy and TOPS Physical Therapy

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.
