Relief From Muscle Tightness And Pain

I’m a 33-year-old woman diagnosed from birth with cerebral palsy. Because of this, I have had to deal with a lot of issues concerning my body. But my biggest complaint that I have is very tight hamstrings and leg muscles.

Through the years of dealing with tightness along with spasms and pain I have done physical therapy and still do, I have tried surgeries, medications such as Baclofen, I have tried Botox injections and serial castings.

Some of these I no longer do because the treatment was very painful and not worth the short-term relief or the treatment was extremely inconvenient. So I have continued to stretch as much as I can daily, but the discomfort is such that the attempt to do a stretch is very painful. But several months ago my physical therapist

Susan S. Ducote suggested that I try a new treatment called Astym therapy. She had just returned from taking a course on this and thought that it might possibly help me. I agreed to try it; on the day of the first treatment, my hamstrings were very tight. The back of my legs all the way down to my ankles felt like boards. The treatment itself I found to be very comfortable, and soon after my session ended I could already feel a big difference. The muscle down the back of my legs felt very soft. Later that evening in my home I was able to do hamstring stretches without pain. I was able to get my foot flat to the floor. I have not done that in forever. My walking was much more comfortable, which was a new sensation for me since I have always walked with tight hamstrings and muscles.

This is definitely a treatment that I would recommend. The results have been amazing.
