05 Feb Tumbling Down – Astym Therapy Relieved Elbow Pain
I took a tumble down our stairs during a moment of dizziness, which is something I deal with on a daily basis. As I was falling, I grabbed for the spokes in the railing on both sides. My arms got stuck as gravity pulled! Both elbows and my right shoulder were in pain. I ignored it for a month, hoping they would heal. No go! Whenever I lifted something like a jug of water or opened a jar, searing pain would penetrate my elbows. Thank goodness for my PT! After the first few Astym treatments on my left elbow, I found immediate relief from the distinctively sharp pain when in use. I can grip things now with little to no pain. My right elbow is also responding to the treatment, needing a bit more TLC. Astym therapy has been a wonderful relief!
