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.

Astym Therapy is Great For Me

Astym therapy is great for me because it has been used on my shoulder and both knees. It helps with the scar tissue in healing and helps to get my muscles back in order. My Therapist Mona is a Great Person and helps me a lot. I can’t give her any gift, as it is not allowed but she is the #1 in my book.

Mastering Stairs/Riding a Bicycle

I have been suffering from chronic knee pain for many years due to various reasons not the least of which is arthritis damage resulting from previous injuries. I had total knee replacement surgery on my right knee on September 19. After some home health physical therapy visits, my surgeon sent me to APEX for more “aggressive” treatment. Up until this time, I had to take steps like a baby, couldn’t drive, and getting on a stationary bike was out of the question. On my third visit I received Astym treatment and was amazed at the changes, not immediately, but that evening I took my first stairs, down, one at a time, in more than several years. That was a milestone. I could also get in and out of the car easily and began driving again. I received another treatment on my next visit and soon added the stationary bike to my routine. My thigh is betting better, and I am not only reaching but surpassing my weekly goals in physical therapy.

I had never heard of Astym therapy prior to this experience but I can attest to the success in my case.

Knee Pain Relief: Astym therapy was the answer

I was having a lot of knee pain over the last year and a half. I was having pain while walking up and down stairs. I would walk just fine. I was sent to an orthopedic physician and he told me to do physical therapy and try out Astym therapy. I was about 2 sessions in and I could tell a difference in the pain level I was having. Now I am able to do stairs and steps just fine. I think Astym therapy is a great thing, I absolutely love how fast it works. I have a few more sessions and I will be completely back to normal.
