12 Jul Tickle Torture – I Laughed Through Astym Therapy And It Cured My Limp
I have ankle issues, so I was sent to physical therapy by my doctor. I was told I was to get Astym therapy and on my first treatment, Andrea explained what she was going to do. Little did we know the tears she would make me shed twice a week. She started on my calf and worked her way down to my ankle, around my ankle, to the bottom of my foot, and then it happened… as she was working the muscles in my foot I had to laugh, and laugh so hard I was crying. She also had to laugh and so did everyone getting treatment at the same time. Funny but not funny. Needless to say, her torture helped me A LOT! When we think back on it all I can do is… LAUGH! I went from walking with a limp, to no limp at all! I also am for the most part, pain free.
