Not Being Able to Heal Your Patients is Frustrating.

Tendinopathies and other musculoskeletal injuries cause chronic pain. As a provider, you want to help your patients heal so they can get back to their lives. But traditional treatments aren’t always effective, and all too often, people are left with pain and restricted mobility that won’t go away.

The Solution Is

Astym Therapy.

Astym is the only regenerative medicine in therapy. With Astym, you have an effective, noninvasive, and drug-free treatment you can rely on — and your patients recover from injury in an average of just 4 weeks.
