Astym (A-stim) treatment sets the standard for soft tissue therapy. It regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and removes unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Asthma soft tissue treatment has helped countless patients by restoring their movement, getting rid of their pain, and giving them back their lives.

Scientifically developed to speed healing 

Astym is a therapy treatment that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Astym treatment is highly effective and even works when other approaches routinely fail. One of the main reasons Astym is so much more effective than other treatments is that Astym was scientifically developed to resolve the underlying cause of soft tissue problems, rather than just trying to temporarily relieve symptoms. It is one of the most researched and effective therapy treatments ever used.

Astym is unmatched in its ability to resolve tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions. Doctors regularly prescribe Astym specifically for their patients, and elite athletes and knowledgeable patients seek out Astym for superior results. When your health and ability to stay active is at stake, only the best will do.

Generally, chronic soft tissue problems are due to scarring or degeneration. Soft tissues include muscles, tendons and ligaments. Both scarring and degeneration are common and can result in pain and limitations in movement.

The body’s soft tissues degenerate when inadequate healing occurs, and over time the tissues degrade. Degenerated tissues are weak and prone to injury. Degeneration can be caused by many factors, including age, intense use, improper movement, weakened muscles putting extra stress on other tissues, disease, etc. Most chronic tendinopathies are primarily degenerative in nature.

Reduce pain and speed up the healing process

Scarring can happen on top of the skin, but often the biggest problems come from scar tissue that forms inside the body around joints, muscles, tendons and/or ligaments. The body naturally lays down some scar tissue in response to irritation or injury. The fibrous, strong scar tissue is meant to reinforce an area, but often it ends up restricting movement and causing pain.

The causes of problem scar tissue can be injury (such as a sprained ankle, car accident, etc.), a surgery (good surgery can be done, but the body’s response with scar tissue can prevent a full recovery), intense or over use of soft tissues (such as sports, repetitive work, activity beyond your fitness level, etc.), sprains or other strains on soft tissues.

Good news: Astym treatment works both to regenerate tissues and eliminate or reduce internal scar tissue. By eliminating the cause of your problems, your symptoms will resolve.

Where Does it Hurt? We Can Help!

Low Back/Lumbar

If you have low back pain, you are not alone. At any given time, about 25% of people in the United States report having low back pain within the past three months. In most cases, low back pain is mild and disappears on its own.

Neck/Cervical

The neck is less protected than the rest of the spine and can be vulnerable to injury and disorders that produce pain and restrict motion often affecting everyday activities. For many, it is a temporary condition disappearing with time.

Mid-Back/Thoracic

The thoracic spine encompasses the upper- and middle-back region and extends down about five inches past the bottom of the shoulder blades. Although it is solidly constructed and relatively stable, it can also be a source of pain.

Shoulder

The shoulder is not a very stable type of joint and tends to be easily injured. Pain can arise from problems with instability or impingement of the soft tissue or bony structure. Injuries can occur while performing manual labor, playing sports, or very often by repetitive movements.

Hip and Groin

The hip is a ball and socket joint designed to withstand repeated motion, but can become damanged due to overuse or injury. A groin strain is an overstretch or tearing injury to the muscles of the inner thigh or front of the hip

Knee/Hamstring/Quads

Knee pain can restrict movement, affect muscle control in the sore leg, and reduce the strength and endurance of the muscles that support the knee. The most common disease affecting the knee is osteoarthritis.

Foot/Ankle/Calf

The feet and ankles work together to provide support and mobility to the body. With proper detection, intervention, and care, most foot and ankle problems can be lessened or prevented. Calf injuries usually occur as a result of a sudden pushing off movement or from excessive over-stretching.

Hand/Wrist/Elbow

Pain in the hand, wrist, elbow or fingers is generally caused by repetitive motions, overuse, or an underlying condition like arthritis or tendonitis. It is a very common complaint. Injuries can also occur during accidents or activities.

Head/Jaw

Many children and adults suffer from chronic jaw and facial pain. Jaw pain can happen all of a sudden, or it can start off mild and become more intense over time. Identifying the underlying issue is the first step in treating this condition.
