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.

Runner’s knee pain: Astym therapy cured it!

I was experiencing some knee pain while I was training for a marathon this past fall. I went in to see the physical therapist who is Astym-certified. We talked about the benefits of the soft tissue reallignment and how it might benefit me being a distance runner. While Astym therapy was not the most pleasant experience during treatment, it cured my knee pain and got me back on the road to recovery…pun intended! Now I am training for a marathon in the spring but being much more cautious and listening to my body. I have not had any knee issues since being discharged from physical therapy, and hope to stay that way for a long time.

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.
