08 Nov Mastering Stairs & Riding A Bicycle Thanks To Astym
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 getting 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!
