Astym Therapy Shortened My Recovery Period

I received a full knee replacement in January 2017 . During my recovery treatment, my back and hip flexor muscles tightened up making it difficult for me to walk. My therapist treated me with Astym therapy on various locations on my back and legs which helped loosen the tightness in my muscles allowing me to be able to perform my various exercises. The Astym therapy procedure considerably shortened my recovery period. Now I’m able to lead a normal life, walk for a distance, swim lengths in my pool and ride my bike for several miles. Thank you Astym therapy.

How Astym Therapy Helped Me After Knee Injury

I’m 64 years old and was hit by a car while I was riding my bicycle about a year and half ago. It messed my left knee up pretty good along with some other things. The pain was pretty bad and didn’t go away after about a year. My doctor said that the only way I could get rid of the pain was to get a full knee replacement, so after talking to some people, and family who had it done, I went ahead and had the full knee replacement. It worked out pretty good for me, but what I want to talk to you about is the Physical Therapy I had to go through, and how the Astym treatment worked out for me. Cora Health where I went for my physical therapy has this lady who works there, her name is Hyacinth Wallace, she is the clinic manager there. She was the one told me about Astym Treatment, how it could help soften the muscle tissue. After the operation my leg and knee were really tight, and the area behind my left knee was hard, and made it difficult for me to get my full range of motion back in my left leg. When Hyacinth started the Astym treatments I could feel the change in the muscles and tissue all the way up my leg, and especially behind my left knee. I believe this treatment has really helped me to get most of my range of motion back in my left leg, and I’m not done with my physical therapy at this time. My range of motion is 0 to 120 degrees. So I’m feeling pretty good about how it’s working out for me. So check it out yourself.

Thanks again

Astym therapy: Getting Back To My A Game

I suffered a season ending injury to my knee while playing in a basketball game. I had ACL surgery back in April of 2015 and needed PT to get me back to playing the game I love!

The road to recovery and getting back on the court was a long nine months. TOPS Physical Therapy gave me some of the best care that I have ever experienced as an athlete. Astym therapy was something that they used on me to help aid my recovery process and keep me tuned up!

Astym therapy helped with scar tissue, tightness, increased blood flow, and really getting in deep to address those adhesions. Astym therapy also helped with an old ankle injury I suffered 10 years ago, that I thought was helpless! I love Astym therapy and TOPS Physical Therapy!
