Astym Therapy Got Me Back in the Game and More

TOPS Physical Therapy is the best clinic I have gone to!

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!

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.

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 instruments, which if you asked me while they were doing it I would say it is not a fun time. But, the use of the instruments helped aid my recovery process! The use of Astym in my rehab assisted with breaking up scar tissue around my scars, tightness, and increased blood flow to that area. Astym 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 was able to break that up and get me back to normal.

I love Astym and TOPS Physical Therapy

Finally Some Relief! After surgery, Astym therapy relieved pain and increased my range of motion

I had a knee replacement in Jan 15 that did not go well causing constant pain and swelling requiring arthroscopy in Jun 15 to remove scar tissue. The joint was too loose and in Feb 17 I had to have a “Revision” or second replacement. Scar tissue has apparently been hindering my range of motion and causing increased pain. Swelling remained a concern to my physician and my Physical Therapists. An Astym-Certified Therapist has treated me 7 times with Astym therapy. I believe it has helped with resolving scar tissue, swelling, pain and range of motion. It has also improved the plantar fasciitis pain on my right heel. Last weekend I was finally able to do some gardening, planting flowers and attend a festival. I can walk much longer and no longer need the electric cart at the grocery store. I will recommend it to my neighbor who is having on going problems with his Achilles tendon.
